Description by Buena Vista Home Entertainment:

Ernest Goes To Jail
Only a bumbling bank janitor like know-it-all knucklehead Ernest P. Worrell (Emmy(R) Award-winning comedian Jim Varney) could serve on jury duty and wind up serving time -- in the slammer! The laughs start when a crooked lawyer discovers that Ernest is a dead ringer for his crime-boss client ... and before you can say "Framed!" -- the switch is on! While Ernest is behind bars trying to fit in and break out, he manages to turn the big house into a nuthouse full of big laughs. Meanwhile, his evil double is busy taking his place at the bank and in his girlfriend's life! Full of comic inventiveness, a wacky cast of characters, and slam-bang special effects, ERNEST GOES TO JAIL is guilty of maximum fun in the first degree!

Plot Synopsis:

While visiting the local prison during jury duty, Ernest unwillingly switches places with a look-alike crime boss, Mr. Nash, who is doing time there. Will Ernest survive prison life and find a way to prevent Nash's planned crime spree'
