Editorial Reviews

It sounded like a great weekend away at their boss Bernie's beach side pleasure palace. But when working stiffs Larry and Richard (McCarthy and Silverman) arrive to find a real stiff their murdered boss they're forced to concoct a crazy scheme to avoid being implicated and/or dead themselves! With Bernie propped up and his death effectively covered up, Richard and Larry's weekend getaway becomes exactly that as they dodge curious babes, a curtain of bullets and one confused hit man!

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.

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.

Its not often in hollywood that a movie comes along with an original idea,but with weekend at bernie's,thats what we get.

Weekend at bernie's stars andrew mcCarthy and johnathan silverman and terry kiser.the movie is about two office workers who find out that someone is stealing money from the company that they work for and they share that with thier boss(kiser)

So he rewards them for thier findings at a weekend at his house in the hamptons.then they discover that when they get there that thier boss has been murdered.then they decide that instead of going to the police,they pretend that old bernie didnt die.

What makes this movie funny is the fact that nobody notices that bernie is dead!

The movie also stars catherine mary stewart who i thought was the hottiest woman in the entire movie,and yes you heard me correctly.

All in all i give the movie 3 stars because of its original idea and because it wasnt made out to be something that it was supposed to be.If you like watching live people playing dead people then this is your cup of tea.

This movie is really really funny. I laughed through the whole thing, especially since no one else knew he was dead. The whole concept was funny and I love the movie. Anyone who didn't like it is mental. I loved it so much and it's very enjoyable.

Oh, WEEKEND AT BERNIE'S. I remember watching this at a prepubescent age over and over, at a time when the mere sight of someone getting hit by something was funny (so I guess there's the EPIC MOVIE and the like's audience... finally found it). Now, at a college age, I still can enjoy this movie for what it is: a moronic, implausible, yet strangely compellingly funny movie (double adverb, impressive).
The plot, as many may know, involves Larry (Andrew McCarthy) and Richard (Jonathan Silverman), two young up-and-coming insurance guys at a prestigious firm run by Bernie Lomax (Terry Kiser), so rich his car is bigger than Larry's apartment. So Larry and Richard are overjoyed when they discover someone has been stealing from the company and bring this to Bernie's attention. He seems appreciative and invites the boys to his beach home for the weekend. They of course agree, and we cut to Bernie asking mobster Vito (Louis Giambalvo... had to look him up as well) to have the boys murdered. Yes, Bernie has been doing the stealing and needs the only 2 guys on his trail snuffed out. Vito decides Bernie is the one he needs out of the way and hires crony Paulie (the reliably funny Don Calfa) to dispose of ol' Bern. So Larry and Richard arrive to a beautiful beach house, beautiful women, a full stock of alcohol, and a party on the way. Oh yeah, and their dead boss, who has been all set up to appear like he has overdosed.

Ah, Weekend At Bernie's. One of those movies that, let's just be honest, could have only worked well in the 80s. It just has that perfect 80s-ness to it.

Weekend At Bernie's came out in 1989, the tail end of the 1980s. Starring Jonathon Silverman and Andrew McCarthy, WAB is a movie about two accountants, Richard and Larry respectively, who work at a very successful insurance firm in New York City. Their boss and company CEO Bernie Lomax, played by Terry Kiser, has ties to a local organized crime crew and is embezzling from the company. At the beginning, Richard and Larry discover someone is ripping the company off. Alerting their boss, unknowing that it's Bernie himself stealing from the company. Bernie then arranges for not only them to come to his beach house over the weekend, but for his mob connections to have the two friends taken care of. However, it backfires when the mob boss has Bernie killed instead.

During a case of mixed connections, Richard and Larry find out about the deal (but not the fact the killer was never after them to begin with), get worried, and come up with a plan that basically is no one else knows Bernie is dead, so they'll keep the charade up that he's alive until they're able to get off the island.

Despite however morbid it sounds, it's far from it and is actually a light-hearted comedy. This is one of those movies I love watching and can watch this constantly when I want to. There's just something about the movie that I love and often has a cheering up effect on me. Andrew McCarthy, Jonathon Silverman, and Terry Kiser work very well in their performances.

Is the movie worth checking out? I would say yes.
