Playing Holidailies catch-up, Day 2
2010-12-07 - Guilty pleasures.
Holiday guilty pleasures include the occasional cup of eggnog (very small doses), flavored cocoas and the timeless movie classic Ernest Saves Christmas starring Jim Varney as Ernest P. Worrell, formerly of local tv commercials.
Varney made a career out of playing the dimwitted but good-hearted Ernest in a variety of B movies, but by far the best was this one. Ernest must help Santa Claus find his replacement in time for Christmas, while looking after a young runaway. It's stupid and ridiculous, but warmhearted, and I like it.
