Plot Summary
Ernest P. Worrell (Jim Varney) has no talent at all when it comes to playing basketball, which relegates him to being able to cheer for his team only from the sidelines. Understandably, Ernest feels depressed about never making it onto the court. Then, luckily for him, he meets an angel (Kareem Abdul-Jabbar) who has what he needs to succeed. The angel gives Ernest a pair of magic basketball sneakers and warns him to use them wisely, but Ernest can't help getting carried away.
