I remember the Weekend At Bernie's. It was one of those couch crash movies for the hot summer time. Having to walk around with a dead body while chasing girls.

I remember many years ago I saw Weekend at Bernies. It is one of my all time favorite comedies. I think this is one of the classics and something I can watch over and over again. Andrew McCarthy and Jonathan Silverman are great actors and compliment each other. They were great in both Weekend at Bernies and its sequel. This is one of those movies that is so dumb that it keeps you laughing. What I like most about this movie is that these two losers have to pretend that their dead boss is still alive and nobody even notices this but the hitman who is out to kill him which takes place over the cost of the weekend. They so remind me of an Abbott and Costello always in trouble but always get away with it. My absolute favorite actor in this film is the actor who played Bernie (Terry Kiser) I believe his name is. Anyone who can play dead and not say a word through an entire one and half hours of a movie gets big kudos for me. Now I am going to have to see if I can find it on Netflix, Hulu, or amazon prime

Weekend at Bernie's is a "dead" ringer for being a summer movie. It has 2 great 80s actors Andrew McCarthy and Jonathan Silverman. I don't see how they spent the whole weekend carrying around a dead body and nobody noticing. The laughter ensued as the 2 main characters tried to make people believe Bernie was still alive, because they thought they killed him. To me this movie is still a summer classic

I saw Weekend at Bernie's many years ago but remember that it was hilarious. Basic premise was that 2 guys were invited to their boss's home for the weekend. They thought it was to reward them for uncovering an embezzler. The boss, being the embezzler himself, planned to do away with them over the weekend. But, to further complicate matters, the boss was killed by the hitman he had hired before the 2 guys arrived. It seems that Bernie (silly Bernie) had been fooling around with the hit man's wife!) They didn't want to be accused of murder so they made it look like Bernie was still alive all weekend. They propped him up and it looked like Bernie was just a drunk having a blast! The hit man was confused. He saw the "living" Bernie and had to kill him again. Bernie became the creature who wouldn't die (lol) and the hit man got very frustrated. The guys were oblivious to what was going on. They just wanted to save their own skin.
One of the marks of a good movie is your ability to remember it years later. Another indication is that you see everyday life situations and reference back to the movie. I know that I've said, on more than one occasion - that guy reminds me of Bernie in Weekend at Bernie's if he was just "going through the motions" and not exhibiting any enthusiasm or energy for what he was doing.
Although this movie is almost 30 years old, if you get a chance to watch it - make sure that you do. Although it is slapstick and corny at times, it is hilarious.

Weekend at Bernie’s is a great comedy. It starts with two best friends, Richard and Larry, working at an insurance company under Bernie Lomax's management. While one is laid back, and the other hard-working, both men are eager to move up in the company and make their way. When they discover a huge accounting error worth $2 million dollars, the boys eagerly tell Bernie, hoping to earn some favor. Unfortunately, Bernie is the one that has been embezzling from the company, and Richard and Larry are unknowingly put in danger. Bernie pretends to be thrilled by the discovery and invites the two friends to his amazing beach house, supposedly as a reward for finding the discrepancy. However, Bernie really hires a hitman, using his mafia friend’s connection. The hitman is to kill the two men after Bernie leaves the beach house. Too bad for Bernie, though; his plan backfires when his mafia friend finds out Bernie has been messing around with his girlfriend, and the hitman kills Bernie instead. Richard and Larry arrive to find Bernie already dead and must prop him up like a puppet the whole weekend to avoid being accused of murder. The weekend turns into hilarious shenanigans as the boys try to keep their charade up, all the while the hitman keeps trying to finish the job and kill the "still alive" Bernie. Definitely a must watch.

I just watched Weekend at Bernies earlier this morning again for the first time in decades, and it was as funny then as it is now to watch.
Richard and Larry are co-workers at an insurance firm as wanna-be rising star employees looking hit the executive ceiling. Quirky, clown-ish and goofy, these 2 will do anything to impress their boss. The 2 are working on some policies and duly uncover what they see as a fraud of over $2 million dollars. They look at this as a way to prove to their boss how exemplary they are at their job and bring it to his attention in hopes of hitting executive status. Little do they know, their boss, Bernie Kiser is the one perpetrating the very fraud they uncovered.
So, Bernie, in an attempt to keep this fraud under wraps, he asked his employees Richard and Larry to come stay at his fabulous home in the Hamptons for the weekend and help him work on this "issue". Bernie says they can have the run of the house and enjoy themselves. Little do the 2 know, Bernie plans to have them killed for fear of exposing this insurance fraud. Meanwhile, Bernie's plan to have the 2 killed backfires and his henchmen instead kills Bernie.
The 2 are baffled when they discover Bernie is dead and instead of reporting it, hide the fact that he's dead in plain sight of his friends, neighbors and fiance. No one seems to suspect. Basically the 2 employees and puppeteering Bernie around as if he were alive, propping his body on the sofa while guest are partying in his home, on a scooter, tying his shoelaces together with theirs so it appears he's walking side by side. In many mishaps, Bernie falls from balconies, gets taken in by the tide and then washed back up ashore, gets dragged downstairs and just tossed around like a rag doll.
For the entire weekend the 2 manage to cover up the fact that Bernie was dead until those who conspired to kill him are caught, now Richard and Larry are home free, relaxing on the beachfront and can put the whole experience behind them....that is until Bernie manages to roll out of the ambulance on the gurney and rolls up back beside them. And the fun starts again when Weekend at Bernie's II begins LOL

Its diffidently a classic comedy, a comfort movie for those days of sitting on the couch and having a good laugh. I love Andrew McCarthy in most movies he is in, this one was diffidently very nice and funny to watch. I mean it is a little morbid to watch them drag a dead body around pretending he is alive after the man set them up to take the fall for something they are innocent of. I diffidently recommended if you like a good retro comedy.

I remember seeing this movie long ago. I love comedies because it feels good to laugh sometimes. Movies take me away and allows me to focus on something else besides issues at hand.
but, The Movie here, Weekend at Bernies is a good movie. The crew gets to spend the weekend away but little do they know, they were being set up. but the one who set them up, is the one who actually got killed. The men act like he is still alive because they don't want anyone to know that he is dead. they keep him dressed and have to hold up his head, etc. they didn't want have to deal with his death and just acted as though he was still alive.
good movie
