After their adventure at Bernie's weekend house (events of "Weekend At Bernie's") accountants/programmers oafish Larry and up-tight Richard return to New York only to be blamed by the insurance company they all worked for Bernie's theft of two million dollars and fired. Larry and Richard investigate and discover that the money is somewhere in St Thomas in the Virgin Islands. Meanwhile the Cartel Bernie was stealing the money for hires a Voodoo Queen to help them find the money. She tells Henry and Charles to steal Bernie's body and raise it from the dead to lead them to the money. Unfortunately Henry and Charles goofed and Bernie can only move when he hears music. Richard, Larry and Bernie all go to St Thomas to find the money with the aid of Claudia only to be followed by Hummel, a company security officer, who believes that Larry and Richard stole the money as well as Henry and Charles. Who will get to the money first?... Written by

When Charles and Henry are released from jail and walk across the street, there is a crew member with a walkie-talkie behind them telling people not to walk into the shot. Some people even stop and watch the scene being filmed. See more »

She suffered a concussion. She'll be out for hours.
Oh. I'm dead. The sun is setting. Just let me lay down and throw some dirt on me.

sequel surpasses the original and moves in a very different direction
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 involvong 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 8./10
