When two bumbling businessmen, Larry Wilson (Andrew McCarthy) and Richard Parker (Jonathan Silverman), alert their boss, Bernie Lomax (Terry Kiser), to an expensive discrepancy in the company books, he invites them to his home on the beach with the intent to have them murdered. However when they discover that their boss has been murdered prior to their arrival, they attempt to convince people that he is still alive to avoid suspicion for his death, leading to all kinds of wacky mishaps. ~ Iotis

There are a few jokes that hit home quite successfully, but at 98 minutes, you'll probably be looking forward to this weekend's big finale.
Hilarious goofball comedy from the late 80s.
Weekend at Bernie?s doesn?t really work, partly because it expects a single joke, that nobody realizes Bernie?s dead, to carry the whole movie.
A film like Weekend at Bernie's should be commended for being smart enough to be so dumb.
Really funny. Also really stupid. Still, it delivers the laughs.
A classic of the dumb, hit-on-the-head comedy genre!
So terribly corny, it's irresistible!
Bizarre and campy. And what's funnier than sight gags involving dead bodies waterskiing?
