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 Lee Horton <Leeh@tcp.co.uk>

Goofy sequel. Very early 90's style.
26 July 2009 | by (Noctropolis) – See all my reviews

This sequel was more goofy-humor oriented than the original that had tongue in cheek humor mixed with black comedy.

In this sequel you can't forget about quality because you will get insanity instead. There is no need to tell that the plot is a total joke that deals reviving Bernie with voodoo. Could that work?! Well, it does but the results are not very favorable. We get silly situations mixed with the main character's stupidity surrounded by a goofy vibe.

This sequel should only be recommended for HUGE fans of the original. If not, stay away from it because it's not even half as funny as the original.

At least, Jonathan Silverman, Andrew McCarthy and Terry Kiser are back. They're the best thing from this almost-mess.

If nostalgia is a common denominator in your film experience, then you should watch it; otherwise, it should be kept as an obscure sequel.
