The Films of Ernest P. Worrell - Part 3

Our Ernest P. Worrell retrospective is coming to an end with a trio of direct-to-video oddities that prove definitively that Kareem Abdul-Jabbar is god and Jim Varney destabilized the middle east. Plus, we try to figure out the ins-and-outs of the Ernest-verse timeline and why Ernest Goes to Africa is a kids film chock-full of blackface and murder.

THIS WEEK: Slam Dunk Ernest (1995), Ernest Goes to Africa (1997), and Ernest in the Army (1998)
