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.
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.
