At the film's conclusion, unfortunately, Bernie is still a fully animate zombie, leaving open the possibility of a third weekend.

A mildly diverting farcical caper.

Why would anyone want to be caught dead with Bernie and his banal buddies a second time around? Relentlessly labored and pointless

Bernie himself is the only sign of life.

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.

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.
| Original Score: 3/5

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.

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.

Let's just hope that this projected series of films (and I use the term loosely) dies a quiet, unremarked-upon death unlike that of its title character.

At one point Bernie is shown dancing under the sea, an accurate metaphor for the film itself -- which is also dead in the water.

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.
