Classic comedy from the great decade of the 80s.

Funny movie, but I think what makes it really funny is how 80s it is! The clothing cracks me up.
The over-all concept is a good one, with plenty of slap-stick comedy.
Parents should be made aware of some homosexual jokes, and other innuendos that they might not want kids to hear and see.

Movie Reviews

You ask why I gave this movie 5 stars?
Victoria A. Wildermuth | Odessa, TX USA | 01/19/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I gave this film 5 stars because it is one of those rare movies that made me laugh out loud! This is a very dark comedy about 2 idiots who find their boss dead and convince hundreds of gullible people that he is actually alive. They walk him around a resort, go boating with his remains, have parties. They even convince the hitman who killed Bernie that he's still alive! So, you guessed it, the hitman tries and tries again to "kill" Bernie. The physical humor is absolutely the best. It's a unique concept. I guarantee that you will laugh until you hurt. It's totally 80's with a great theme song sung by Jermaine Stewart. Highly recommended."
Dark Comedy, Light Fun
C. A. Luster | Burke, VA USA | 06/10/2004
(4 out of 5 stars)

"The cast is perfect and the sets, music, and all that went into this movie seem to meld to make a very funny movie. Andrew McCarthy as Larry Wilson and Jonathan Silverman as Richard Parker are a good match for co-workers at an insurance company. Larry the brown nosing party man and Richard the hard working nerd. When Richard discovers a two million dollar mistake in claims their boss Bernie invites them over for the weekend to discuss it. What happens after that is sick, demented, and funny. Any fan of "8 Heads in a Duffel Bag" and "The Whole Nine Yards" should enjoy it. This is one of those rare movies were seeing a dead person being lugged around, beat up, dropped, bareface ski, washed around in the tide, shot, strangled, and more is just plain outrageously funny."
Weekend at bernies
Karen Darke | London, United Kingdom | 11/12/2006
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This is a great film to make you laugh. Just old fashioned humor, I laughed from start to finish. The corps [bernie] is great and the two guys on holiday for the weekend have unfortunatley fallen into a difficult situation and try hard to get out of it, with many histerical idea's. Certainly a film to cheer you up on a cold dark evening, my sides ached after watching it."
