Product Description


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.

you know,I'm a bit mystified.this sequel to the original has an even
lower rating.for my money,this movie surpasses the first one.we have
the three main characters,Richard and Larry(Jonathon Silverman,Andrew
McCarthy)and of course,the dead guy,Bernie(Terry Kiser)however,the
difference is this movie has a better story,and although it could still
be called a black comedy,it has a lighter tone to it,and is
hysterically funny quite often,thanks largely to Kiser,who brings a
whole nother(i swear it's a real word)dimension to the dead guy.there
are more pratfalls and physical comedy in this movie.there is a sort of
running gag involving Barry Bostwick"s character,which is quite
amusing.i won't say too much about the plot,except that it continues
pretty much right from where the first one ended.also,this movie is not
a rehash of the first,but rather goes in a different and very
creative(in my mind)direction.as a matter of fact,i kinda was hoping a
third one would be made,just to see what they could do with it.anyway,i
give "Weekend at Bernie's 2" a strong 4/5

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.

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!
