Editorial Reviews

Hilarious performances by Andrew McCarthy and Jonathan Silverman make this comedy a "good old, knockdown slapstick" (The Hollywood Reporter)! It sounded like a great weekend away at their boss Bernie's beachside pleasure palace. But when working stiffs Richard and Larry (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 escape becomes exactly that, as they dodge curious babes, a curtain of bullets and one confused hit man!

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.

Boy, when I rented this movie, I had no idea whatsoever that it would be this funny.
When Larry (Andrew McCarthy) and Richard (Johnathan Silverman) uncover an embezzlement scam at their office, they report it to their boss, Bernie Lomax (Terry Kiser), expecting a promotion, not expecting that Bernie himself is the culprit. Bernie invites them to his beachhouse that weekend, planning to have them killed by a mafia hit man. But, the mafia bad guys have other plans, and they have him killed before Larry and Richard arrive. When they discover Bernie's dead, they at first want to tell the police, despite the fact that they may inadvertendly frame themselves. They soon decide to keep up the face the Bernie's still alive and kickin'.
Did I laugh? HELL YEAH!! WEEKEND AT BERNIE'S has got to be one of the funniest movies ever. It's hilarious to watch Larry and Richard desperately trying to make Bernie's corpse appear to still have a spark, like in the scene where they try to get on a boat with Bernie's body. How they make it appear that he's walking is hard to describe, and even harder not ot laugh at.
Another great scene, involving Bernie's girlfriend from NYC, who goes into a room where Bernie's body is waiting. She emerges from the room as a necropheiliac without even knowing Bernie was dead. This was somewhat overlooked by the critics, but it is worthy of positions held in the "greatest movies of all time list" by movies like VERTIGO or TITANIC, which aren't very good.
That's more than I can say for the sequel, WEEKEND AT BERNIE'S 2, but if you can laugh at things like a corpse jetskiing (so to speak), and I'm sure you can, than stop by BERNIE'S this WEEKEND. As I said above, it was the best WEEKEND of my life.

I am giving this 5 stars not because it is an Oscar-worthy masterpiece - it's not. Not because it is the most clever and witty film ever - it's not. This movie gets better with time. Or maybe it just stays the same. I don't know. It is a FUN, silly and whacked out 80s movie. I love it.

I love the opposites-attract chemistry between Andrew McCarthy and Jonathan Silverman... I love the sub-plot with Silverman and the girl that he keeps trying to win over... and I love that Terry Kiser managed to keep that smirk on his face for the entire movie.

This movie was in NO way meant to be taken seriously and they knew that. It is so ridiculous, that if you even try to take it seriously on any level it'll ruin it for you. Just sit back with some friends and have a good laugh. This is an awesome summer movie.

I love so many 80s comedies as it is, so I'm biased... This one is still one of my favorites though due to it's sheer silliness.

...at Bernie's.
There comes a time in every cinema aficionado's film-watching that he comes upon a film that's such an astonishing work of art and reminds us why we love films. To even attempt to describe my utter appreciation and amazement for this masterpiece would do a great dis-service to Goddard's directorial vision. Such a film, is Jean Luc Goddard's challenging magnum opus WEEKEND at Bernie's. 'Bernie's' is a cinematic tour-de-force. I must express my gratitude to Amazon.com for recommending such an astounding exemplar of imaginative filmmaking.
On a supplemental level, WEEKEND at Bernie's plays feast for the eyes and ears. Bountiful colors shine vibrantly while the characters try to get themselves out of some various zany situations. WEEKEND at Bernie's is the best dark comedy since Charles Chaplin's 1947 work of genius Monsieur Verdoux, which Orson Welles co-wrote. On a fundamental level, we a treated to a film that plays as a wonderful homage to the masters (Alfred Hitchcock, of course) film, The Trouble with Harry. The composition framing of WEEKEND at Bernies is dazzling, and has been imitated, but never duplicated. The cinematography is nothing short of spectacular. The milieu of the luxurious island is a highlight of the film. But my favorite part of WEEKEND at Bernie's is the stunning character development. The screenplay executed as a precise balance between farce and sadness has been constructed by the great Ted Kotchef. WEEKEND at Bernie's is a luminous commentary on life and death.
The word masterpiece as been thrown around haphazardly among so-called film critics to express their love and admiration for a movie...Including in my current assessment of WEEKEND at Bernies...
