Synopsis

A host of stars both from Hollywood and Britain light up this contemporary adaptation of the much-loved play by Oscar Wilde. A pair of dashing young men about town in 1890s London have both taken to using the name "Ernest" as a disguise for their romantic activities - but their luck runs out when the two fake Ernests find themselves confronted with one another, with riotously funny consequences.
