When they discover that their deceased boss had stashed away two million illegally embezzled dollars in a Caribbean safe deposit box, two co-workers decide to claim the cash. To do so, however, they must convince everyone the boss is actually alive -- a situation which seems oddly familiar to them both. This sequel to the popular 1989 comedy Weekend at Bernie's promises more of the same: slapstick with an amazingly lifelike corpse at the center. Whatever freshness the premise may have once had

No Friends? Inconceivable! Log in to see what your friends have to say.
Through it all, Mr. Kiser, who says not a word, exudes the foolish amiability of a partygoer who is beyond plotzed and is living in a private world of his own.
I find it hard to believe that many people will pay $6 or $7 to see a picture that has TV sitcom production values, writing, and acting.
If the premise of the first film was mindless and repetitive, it's doubly so this second time around.
At the film's conclusion, unfortunately, Bernie is still a fully animate zombie, leaving open the possibility of a third weekend.
Why would anyone want to be caught dead with Bernie and his banal buddies a second time around? Relentlessly labored and pointless
Frankly I'm stunned that every American who paid to see it didn't file a class action suit against Tri-Star Pictures for their blatant misrepresentation of the word "comedy".
Sad sequel to a surprisingly clever dark comedy. The voodoo curse is pointless, and all the funny death moments were used up in teh first one.
Just as the lead characters try to squeeze more use out of a rotting corpse, so do the filmmakers from this tired premise.
At times funny, but more often stupid.
Once wasn't enough?
A few of the gags work, though many of the jokes that were not funny in the first film are trying again and failing again in the second.
At one point Bernie is shown dancing under the sea, an accurate metaphor for the film itself -- which is also dead in the water.
