Ernest Rides Again ★★½ 1993 (PG)

Ernest P. “KnowwhutImean?” Worrell (Varney) is back, aiding a college professor friend who has a cockamamie theory that the British crown jewels were hidden in a Revolutionary War cannon. Naturally he's right and Ernest must battle British spies and a greedy antiquities collector to get the gems back. Goofy slapstick sticks to the formula of the other films. 93m/C VHS . Jim Varney, Ron James, Duke Ernsberger, Jeffrey Pillars, Linda Kash, Tom Butler; D: John R. Cherry III; W: John R. Cherry III, William M. Akers; M: Bruce Arntson, Kirby Shelstad.
