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.
