Product Description


Weekend at Bernie's starts when two lowly clerks at an insurance agency uncover a $2 million fraud and report it to their boss, Bernie (Terry Kiser). Unfortunately for them, Bernie is the one behind the fraud, and he invites them to his island beach house for the weekend, where he intends to have them killed by his mob contacts. Unfortunately for Bernie, the mob decides to rub him out instead--and thus begin the necrotic hijinks. The clerks, Richard (Jonathan Silverman) and Larry (Andrew McCarthy), arrive and discover Bernie's body. At first they panic and start to call the police, but when a party of islanders sweeps in, Richard and Larry also discover that the local residents are so self-absorbed they don't notice that Bernie is dead. So if our heroes can just convince everyone that Bernie is still alive for they weekend, they can have a splendid time. Unfortunately, they also convince the mob hitman, who keeps trying to take Bernie out. Weekend at Bernie's was made at the height of 1980s fashion and features many amusing outfits and hairstyles--often the styles are funnier than the dialogue, and the characters are tissue-paper thin. Still, there's no denying that the movie chugs along from bit to bit and never takes itself more seriously than it should. A cheerful, disposable piece of fluff. --Bret Fetzer

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.

this movie is not too bad.it's a black comedy that is entertaining and
certainly amusing.without giving it away,Bernie is a rich guy,who ends
up dead,yet still manages to be the life of the party,literally,thanks
to two best friends(Andrew McCarthy,Jonathon Silverman)who also work or
rather--worked for Bernie.i won't sat any more about the plot.if you
want to know more,you'll have to watch the movie to find out.being a
black comedy,the movie is entertaining and quite amusing at
times,though not drop dead funny.(sorry,i couldn't resist)this is of
course the point in this type of movie,to be wryly amusing and even
ironic at times.i liked it quite a bit,though it could have been
better,given the premise.there is so much rich material they could have
mined,in my opinion.and while it doesn't quite reach its potential,it's
still worth watching.Both McCarthy and Silverman are good in the roles
as sort of an "Odd Couple" type.Richard(Silverman)is more strait laced
and conservative,while Larry(McCarthy)is a slacker interested in having
fun,more than anything else.Catherine Mary Stewart is very good in her
supporting role.i only wish she had a larger role.but it is very clear
she is very talented.however it is Terry Kiser as Bernie,who steals the
show.who knew a dead guy could be so amusing.all in all,a good,not
great movie.it spawned a sequel,which is much better,in my opinion.if
you like this movie,i highly recommend part 2.as for this movie,I'd
give it a 7/10.

Two young insurance company employees, Larry (Andrew McCarthy) and Richard (Jonathan Silverman) discover an instance of fraud and report it to their boss Bernie (Terry Kiser). Unfortunately for them, Bernie is the one behind the fraud, and he asks his mobster associate to take them out. Unfortunately for Bernie, the mobster sends his hit man to eliminate Bernie instead. Larry and Richard arrive at Bernie's gorgeous beach house for the weekend and, after discovering that Bernie is dead, manage to make it look like he is still alive so that they can enjoy the rest of the weekend.
An uncomplicated, very slightly plotted farce that is actually pretty fun if it hits you in the right frame of mind. The whole thing is extremely silly and yet extremely funny at times. McCarthy and Silverman are very lively, but Kiser completely steals the movie as the title corpse. I first noticed this amusing actor on a hilarious episode of 'Three's Company', and have remained amused by his performances ever since. However, I think that sad-eyed cult actor Don Calfa ("Chopper Chicks in Zombietown", "The Return of the Living Dead" is also worth mentioning, in a good comedy performance as the hit man who grows increasingly flustered in his attempts to kill Bernie once and for all. Catherine Mary Stewart is attractive and appealing enough as the girl Richard is interested in.
It also seems to be part satire: a commentary on self-absorbed rich jerks who are so into what they themselves are doing that they can't notice (or even sense) that Bernie is dead.
The movie's Canadian director, Ted Kotcheff, appears on screen as Richard's father.
All in all, a good comedy. I give it 4/5.

A Film by Ted Kotcheff
This is one of those movies I didn't actually expect to like, but did. The movie is also kind of dumb but is still funny and it works despite the dumbness of the plot. Here's the set up: Larry (Andrew McCarthy) and Richard (Jonathon Silverman) are two employees that are rather low on the corporate ladder at an insurance firm. They notice a discrepancy that shows that one claim paid out four different checks for one person's death. They bring it up with their boss, Bernie (Terry Kiser) and when he sees that it is a scam, he rewards them with a weekend at his house/summer home. Here's the kicker: Bernie is really in on the scam and along with his associates, he puts out a hit on Larry and Richard. Instead, Bernie's associate has Bernie killed (Bernie was sleeping with the guy's wife/mistress).
This is when Larry and Richard arrive on the island. They discover that Bernie is dead, but are a little confused about how to proceed. Do they call the cops? What do they say? They are still freaked out by it when Bernie's neighbors start arriving for a party. Since Bernie looks pretty much alive (and wearing the sunglasses, he can be sleeping or looking around), they prop him up on the couch. Nobody catches on to the fact that Bernie is dead and it almost seems that Bernie is the life of the party (pun intended). For the rest of the weekend Larry and Richard pass off Bernie as being alive (even carrying him around between them).
Despite the premise of the movie, Weekend at Bernie's works. It is funnier than I expected it to be. Yes, it's a dumb movie, but it's also decently funny at the same time. A highlight of the movie is the guy who plays Bernie. Sure, he's dead for most of the movie, but Bernie also makes the movie, just how he looks and gets to react (it'll make sense if you see it). Bernie is a riot. I can't strongly recommend the movie, but give it a shot, you might be surprised.
