Summary, etc.:
Only a bumbling bank janitor like know-it-all knucklehead Ernest P. Worrell (Emmy Award-winning comedian Jim Varney) could serve on jury duty and wind up serving time in the slammer! The laughs start when a crooked lawyer discovers that Ernest is a dead ringer for his crime-boss client...and before you can say "Framed!" the switch is on! While Ernest is behind bars trying to fit in and break out, he manages to turn the big house into a nuthouse full of BIG laughs. Meanwhile, his evil double is busy taking his place at the bank and in his girlfriend's life! Full of comic inventiveness, a wacky cast of characters, and slam-bang special effects, ERNEST GOES TO JAIL is guilty of maximum fun in the first degree!
