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

You've lost them.
Well, not-not exactly. Um...
Anybody could have.
Twice. He was going to lead you to the money.
Oh, yes, but Bu, I know. We messed with the bones and that fool with the conjure, and now he can only walk when the music playing. We're sorry.
Where is he now?
[points to Richard and Larry]
The white boys.
He - We don't know where he is.

What an awful follow up. Sure, you want the Bernie character lifeless but not his script. Klane, who wrote the first, does the same here and gets to direct. Camerawork is not his problem, its his laughless dialogue, something he had no trouble with in part 1. Here he depends too much on slamming Bernie about in a variety of ways. He gives McCarthy and Silverman no goofy lines to go along with the visual stuff like last time. The only real gag that netted a chuckle from me was the "Bernie Boogie," at least thats what I called it. When Kiser hears music his body starts moving about in a silly dance. But aside from that theres not much here.
