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>

Ahem
20 July 2013 | by (Lincolnshire, UK) – See all my reviews

It's difficult to resist a sequel with a tagline like 'Bernie's back... and he's still dead!' Well, I thought so, anyway. Your mileage may vary.

This bafflingly redundant follow-up to the underrated original does offer a few genuine laughs in the middle of a desperate plot that bends over backwards to keep Bernie up and about, even resorting to a voodoo spell. The laughs come cheap and fast: Bernie falls flat on his face, is attacked by a shark while hang gliding, and gets crammed into a suitcase; still, it's not like the first movie was a highbrow kitchen sink drama. So, it's likable enough, thanks largely to the efforts of Andrew McCarthy and Jonathan Silverman, but it's still slapdash stuff with scenes seemingly missing left, right and centre judging by the way the characters move from place to place.

Was this movie necessary? No, it was not. Is it any good? Not really, no. But it's painless enough.
