Yeah the Ernest movies can be very stupid but I like them. You know what to expect before you start to watch so if you hate it don't watch it. They allow someone to just let go and enjoy stupid, inane plots with all's well that ends well endings. Ernest is always a loveable, well meaning oaf who complicates every thing but manages to get things to come out well. Playing reservist water boys who are activated and sent to some desert in some who knows where, apparently Arab country, they screw everything up but paint the target for the jets at the end.
This movie finds Ernest as a ball retriever at a driving range with aspirations of driving army trucks like real army people. His buddy assures him that if he joins the reserves, he can party every weekend while driving the big green trucks. So Ernest joins up. But coincidentally, his unit suddenly gets called up and sent to the Persian Gulf as peace keepers monitoring a border dispute. The border dispute goes rapidly out of control, and Ernest winds up on the front lines. The fate of the civilized world is in his hands! Given the theme, it's not surprising that this movie is a bit more violent than Ernest's standard kids' fare. Guns actually get fired (but not by Ernest) and people fall down. If you are familiar with the Middle East or the army, you will find lots to laugh at in this movie. However, the overall plot almost comes across as too real these days to be as preposterous as it was originally intended.
My son who is Austic loves all the Ernest movies, he didn't have this one and I am giving it as a gift. I am sure he will love it.
