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.
Wait! She can't be out! We brought the money to her! She's gotta help Richie and remove the curse!
She can't do anything like this.

First of all, let me say that the first "Weeeknd At Bernie's" is a tough movie to "follow up." The premise (while by the end of the first movie it may have seemed worn out) was fresh for its time and the humor was totally there. As for the sequel, I was glad to see Richard and Larry still hanging out together. It was also nice to see that their characters didn't change much. Richard was still the brains behind the operation and Larry was still as crazy as ever. Yes the plot was kind of silly (to put it mildly) and the whole voo-doo thing was kind of lame. However, the 2 people chasing Larry and Richard added some new humor to this film that the first movie kind of lacked. Who made the movie? Well Bernie DUH! Bernie provides lots of good laughs with his silly dancing, and even though he is dead, he brought lots of life to this movie at times. Beyond that, the music in this film really helped it along. With the music, it really made you wish you could go on a vacation wherever the boys were at. To put it another way, the music REALLY helped this film. While this movie isn't the greatest comedy ever, it really does not deserve all the horrible things people say about it. Richard, Larry and Bernie make this film worth watching at least once. Now if only they would have made a soundtrack to go with the movie. And before you ask, yes the music was that good! :)
