    Wow! I thought all the Ernest movies were going to be full frame! Im very happy that at least Ernest goes to Camp is widescreen. I feel bad for the people who would have wanted the Christmas one, and I'd gladly voice my disapproval to the powers that be at Buena Vista, but I will definitely be picking up the Camp one. Maybe I'll just buy the Jail one and skip out on Christmas to show my disapproval of MAR.

    Sounds like a fine plan Mike. I actually saw the christmas one in the theater and it's a fun movie.. I like watching it at Christmas time... almost as much as The Santa Clause, but with it being full frame only, that's not gonna happen with the DVD!

    These were originally announced as all being full frame. I wonder if that was a mistaken announcement, or if the various campaigns to get them in OAR were successful.

    I was wondering if that was a misprint about them being widescreen, but now I guess it can be confirmed?
    I'm seeing on other sites that, it is true that all but X0mas one will be 16x9!!

    Perhaps a box set of these could be called "The Importance of Being Ernest"

    WHY MUST THE MESS WITH 'CHRISTMAS'. Damn, probably my favorite, followed by 'Scared Stupid'.

    I thought that the fourth film, "Ernest Scared Stupid," was also being released at the same time?

    I believe DVDReview is wrong here.

    Man I hope that Ernest Saves Christmas isn't P&S. I rank this one right up there with Ernest Goes to Camp. I really hope that DVD Review is wrong.

    I went onto www.imdb.com and was surprised to learn that theres a total of 11 Ernest films. I knew of the 4 that are coming out on DVD, but I had no idea that that guy kept making them. Last night on Fox, they aired the Simpsons episode where Bart and Homer become carnies. That episode had Jim Varney has a guest voice. I really liked that guy, even when he wasnt playing Ernest. May he rest in peace...

    My guess is that Ernest Saves Christmas is Pan & Scan because it's a "Holiday Film." Maybe if we start a petition now, there is time to save it. The three other Ernest films are listed as animorpic widescreen as laser's edge.

    Cool, thanks John! [​IMG]
    With these prices I'll easily buy the widescreen versions!

    Well, I'm scratching my head. The back of the Ernest Saves Christmas box states - Widescreen (1.85:1). Did anybody get all of them and compare?
