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!

5.0 out of 5 stars You ask why I gave this movie 5 stars? January 18, 2008
Format:DVD
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dark Comedy, Light Fun June 10, 2004
Format:DVD
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars weekend at bernies November 12, 2006
Format:DVD
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Have fun without thinking February 8, 2002
Format:DVD
Terry Kiser is a blast to watch as "deadbeat" boss Bernie, whose former employees -- Jonathan Silverman and Andrew McCarthy -- find themselves dragging him with them for an entire weekend. Don Galfa also is a treat as the hitman who makes the unusual weekend possible.
The biggest problem here is that, in order to truly enjoy the movie, you have to buy into the premise that virtually everybody on the island is completely braindead: McCarthy, who has fun beating the dead man in cards; Silverman, who can't get past constantly lying to his love interest; Bernie's mistress, who still thinks he's alive AFTER a night of passion; and an island full of people, who somehow miss the odor of a rotting corpse in their midst.
Yes, this is a fun movie to watch. Just don't engage your brain or you'll miss out on the party.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sweetest movie! September 16, 2006
Format:DVD
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.
