    Any word of a box full of all the Ernest movies seeing as there will be 6 out shortly from as little as $6.49 each?

    I count 10 on imdb but maybe a couple aren't full movies as they say TV.

    I know these aren't the greatest movies but if you could get a complete box of 10 for say $60, then it's only like the cost of around 3 or so regular priced DVDs.

    The rights are spread across a couple of different companies (if not more), so a box set is unlikely.

    Ernest also had a TV series for a while, and I think the character first appeared in some commercials.

    Not only that, but Earnest Saves Christmas is P&S, so if there was a box set I wouldn't buy it because of that.

    I wish Disney PR would get their facts straight. The specs with many of the 9/3 releases seem to change on a weekly basis.
    First, all of the Ernest movies are P&S.
    Then, "Camp" is WS and the rest are P&S.
    Then, all are WS except "Christmas".
    Now, "Camp" and "Christmas" are WS and the others are P&S.
    I don't think anyone will know for sure until they're holding the disc in their hands. I'd like to know the facts so I know which of them to pre-order.
    How about a press release Disney?

    I have something better. I have an hour long demo tape of his characters that he gave me. I also have home video of him that I shot.[​IMG]

    What??? Where did it change that Christmas is Widescreen? I purposely did not order it because I was told it was full frame? I did order Camp and Stupid because I thought they were widescreen. Which is it? I will have to cancel anything if its full frame as I will not support it.

    One more time [​IMG] :
    Camp - 16x9 widescreen
    Christmas - letterboxed widescreen
    Jail - 1.33:1
    Stupid - 1.33:1
    I'll leave figuring out the reasoning behind this to you guys. [​IMG]

    If I get the boxed set, I want them ALL to be Anamorphic Widescreen. No ifs, ands, or, buts. OAR or NO SALE!!

    You know, why don't you just RENT the P&S ones and buy the widescreen ones?

    Luke, where did you get your information from? I've heard lots of different stories from lots of different sources.
