Product Description

Amazon.ca

Yeesh. The dead guy from Weekend at Bernie's is back for the gratuitous sequel, still flopping around in his lifelessness like a wet noodle and getting dragged, stuck, bumped, and subjected to all manner of undignified things the living would never tolerate. Jonathan Silverman and Andrew McCarthy return as hapless businessmen who flee to the Virgin Islands after being accused of embezzlement. For reasons we won't go into, they need Bernie's corpse to get out of a jam. McCarthy is annoyingly mannered, Silverman is on auto-pilot, and the visual jokes--all based on one form of desecration or another--do not strike any resonant black-comedy chords. --Tom Keogh

....but all hopes were dashed when they said, "Action!"
The first "Weekend at Bernie's" was an absolute hit. A cult classic comedy loaded with humor, crazy situations, and kept the audience involved the entire time. "Weekend at Bernie's Part II" had some great moments, but this movie seemed to go in the wrong direction.
To make a sequel enjoyable, the viewers need more from the first film to make a connection. Only Richard, Larry, and Bernie were back. Where were many of the major characters from the first film?? The mob boss, the girlfriend who was fooling around with Bernie, and Gwen, who was Richard's love interest, should have been back to build the story. Even some of Bernie's beach pals (remember the nut who wanted his car?) could have made cameos.
This time, however, things changed for the worse. Barry Bostwick was essentially the "new" Paulie (who was the hit man in part I) and did a horrible horrible job. Paulie should have returned in some way or form. Can you say prison breakout?
Instead of Richard having a love interest or continuing things with Gwen, this time it was Larry trying to make it with the girl on the island. HUGE mistake, as there was no chemistry or any sense that the relationship might have worked. Larry seemed way to silly to even attempt date or romantic scenes!! Not even close to believable.
I fully agree with one viewer who suggested that Terry Kiser (Bernie), who was hilarious when he was alive, should have been in Part II in a flashback mode or something playing the part of the living Bernie. He was great in the first one and had very little chance to improve the part this time.
The two clowns who were chasing Bernie's body around and carried out the voodoo were terrible.

1.0 out of 5 stars One of the worst movies ever made April 11 2002
Format:VHS Tape
I'm stunned that someone actually green-lighted this movie. I'm even more stunned at the fact that I paid real money to see this movie in a theater when it first came out. They try to breathe life (pardon the pun) into the already played-out premise of carting a dead body around, by giving Dead Bernie the power to walk via voodoo. The ENTIRE move is hung on that premise, with predictably lame results. Man, where do I start? The silly, repetitive "island" music that plays every time Bernie shuffles into a scene? The amazingly stupid, pop-eyed expression Andrew McCarthy wears throughout the film, like he's auditioning for the white-boy Mantan Moreland role (hard to believe that just a few years earlier, he put in a sensitive, complex performance in "Pretty In Pink". This movie buried him in Hollywood)? The seemingly tacked-on "Jamaican Princess" love interest scenes, a woman who in reality would never have anything to do with those two idiots? I laughed out loud exactly ONCE during this film: near the beginning, when two vacationing soul brothers wander into a voodoo ceremony, mistaking it for a party. One of them walks up to a worshiper in the throes of a voodoo spell, and yells, "Yo, Homes, where's the Scotch?" Other than that, this movie is a yawn festival. Avoid at all costs, and definitely don't pay to see it, like I did.

5.0 out of 5 stars Did anyone say 'Golden Palm from Cannes'? June 17 2001
Format:VHS Tape
Is it possible to improve on perfection, in this case that meisterwerk of Americana, 'Weekend at Bernie's'? 'Weekend at Bernie's 2' (W@B2) has proved itself to be one of the enduring works of American film. It takes the timeless themes of courage in the face of defeat and personal triumph won from loss and transforms them into a magnificent twentieth-century classic.
Several people told me that this film is boring, simple, or too short to have won the praise it got. Well, the only thing they did wrong was that they misapproached this dazzling work. To fully enjoy this staggering film, you need to have a good knowledge of English. Also, you need to have the ability to visualize what underlying message each scene is trying to form.
W@B2 lets us see our own lives more clearly, by experiencing the challenge to and empathizing with the protagonists in this classic tale of man versus nature and man versus himself that explores the true nature of human nobility. What does life mean? What are we striving for? From what do we gain our dignity? Anyone who thinks that he who dies with the most toys wins can learn a great deal from this story. Even if the story was not so compelling and universal in its appeal and themes, the film is worth the trip just for the acting. Seldom has so much complexity been portrayed with such simplicity. Miscommunication is what people have the most trouble with in cooperating with each other. Tell a story like this one that makes the point you want to share. Then tell the story again and again. Thirty times or more, and everyone will begin to get it. When your viewers start telling the story thirty times to others, you have made an important first step. Watch this film, learn from it each time, and enjoy ... enjoy ... enjoy!

Picture this: It's Wednesday night, and you had a fight with your boss. Your significant other just left you. On the way home from work, you get a flat tire. Your cell phone battery went dead while trying to get a hold of roadside assistance, and to top it all off, you had to rush your kid to a supermarket bathroom that had a sign on it that says, "Out of Order." So I am guessing that you will need the funniest video you can find to watch. A movie that is also very unusual, with a lot of slapstick comedy. And one in which you can put your brain on hiatus while you watch it. "Weekend at Bernies II" is just such a movie.
Even better than the first movie "Weekend at Bernies II" has some voodoo, and a couple of guys that think a dead body will somehow lead them to a treasure chest of money at the bottom of the ocean. You're probably thinking, these guys have to get a clue. I mean really, but somehow they make it happen.
Bernie, when he was alive, was a rich swindler, who liked milking people out of their money. He just never realized he could cause so many people so many problems after he died. But that's what happens in this movie. Bernie goes parasailing, pulls a trailer with some people riding in it, and listens to head phones while underwater, amongst other things. And he does all this looking as dead as anybody could be.
You will laugh so hard while watching, "Weekend at Bernies II" that you will probably forget your bad day. Wouldn't that be nice.
