    To Buena Vista & Touchstone Pictures,
    Please re-release Ernest Goes To Jail & Ernest Scared Stupid in its OAR (I own Ernest Goes To Camp).
    According to the IMDB page at http://us.imdb.com/Technical?0099512, Ernest Goes To Jail has on OAR of 1.85 : 1
    Accoring to the IMDB page at http://us.imdb.com/Technical?0101821, Ernest Scared Stupid has on OAR of 1.37 : 1 (negative ratio) & also 1.85 : 1 (intended ratio)
    So Ernest Goes To Jail & Ernest Scared Stupid should have been put onto DVD in an OAR of 1.85 : 1
    Please re-release these 2 movies in an OAR of 1.85 : 1 .

    I have only purchased Ernest Saves Christmas since it's presented in it's OAR. I would gladly have purchased these two, but not when the picture has been modified from the theatrical presentation.

    I never had any intention of buying any Ernest movies besides Ernest Goes to Camp and Ernest Saves Christmas. However, when I saw the extremely affordable price these were being offered at, I seriously considered buying Ernest Scared Stupid and Ernest Goes to Jail. Then I found out the latter two were P&S.

    Now I own the two I originally wanted, which are both in OAR. And I do not own the other two. Disney, if you had released these other two in their OAR, I would have bought them. Since you didn't, I didn't. Can I make it any simpler?

    PS - Just watched Ernest Goes to Camp. The 2.35:1 anamorphic presentation is quite good, as is the audio. Pretty surprising for this kind of movie (low budget, "stupid" comedy).

    If these are released in OAR, I will buy them.
