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!

5.0 out of 5 stars You ask why I gave this movie 5 stars? January 18, 2008
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 weekend at bernies November 12, 2006
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.

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

5.0 out of 5 stars Best weekend of my life June 25, 2003
By bc
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A damn site funnier than you would expect!! February 15, 1999
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
I agree with the other guy who reviewed this movie. W@B is, if you actually are brave enough to watch it, one of the funniest movies you will ever see. Most people who like this film give all the credit to Terry Kiser, who plays the dead guy. Don't overlook Jonathan Silverman & Andrew McCarthy! As far as I'm concerned, McCarthy should have won an Oscar for his hilarious performance as a reprehensible, lazy fool. The two aforementioned actors play very well off each other and have an astonishing grasp for each other's timing (an essential element to any great comedy). So go ahead and watch this movie. It is truly a diamond in the rough.

3.0 out of 5 stars Have fun without thinking February 8, 2002
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.
