Slam Dunk Ernest is definitely not the best Ernest movie, but it does have it's moments. Jim Varney is funny as always, but the supporting cast leaves a bit to be desired in the "charisma" department. The special effects are not all that special, and the film's message is a little convoluted, but kids (especially boys) should enjoy it. I wouldn't recommend it for adults unless you are already an Ernest fan from his superior adventures (Ernest Goes to Camp, Goes to Jail, and Scared Stupid).

The pits

"I'm a bona-fide Ernest fan. But if I had seen this movie first, I probably would never have seen another Ernest movie. It's just not funny. Jim Varney's talents are wasted, and nobody else in this movie had any talent to begin with.For those looking for great Ernest, check out "Ernest Rides Again", "Ernest Goes to Camp" or "Ernest Goes to Jail.""
The worst Ernest movie.

"I found the magic sneeakers plot very stupid. I'm sorry Jim (may you rest in peace), but this one was one I looked forward too and it was a let down. But I'l still watch it, just because it's an Ernest movie. Sorry Mr./Mrs., but in case you haven't heard, Jim Varney died earlier this year. I know it's sad, I'm still mourning over it. Maybe the people who made the Ernest movies will come to their senses and rerelease the Ernest movies in his memory. Or maybe he finished Ernest the Pirate before he died and release that."

"Indeed, this is not the best Ernest film that has ever been created, but it is still an Ernest film. Once again, Jim Varney plays Ernest, the clumsey man who has all the good intentions in the world and saves the day in the end. It's funny, you never picture Ernest as a basketball player and this movie proved that he isn't lol! The movie, as in his previous films, has good heart. If you are a fan of Ernest, you should at least check this film out. I'm not recommending that you buy it just yet. Compared to some of his other movies, the movie doesn't compare to greats such as Ernest Goes to Jail. Still, I can't help but feel a little sad now that Jim has passed and we no longer have Ernest to save the day. It was a great legacy, and the character is portrayed very weil in this film. The story is sadly just not much to work with."
