1 September 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It does not disappoint or disrespect the legacy of the original movie. Often, a movie will come out that receives so much hype from critics and moviegoers that if I don't see it within the first 48 hours of its release, I won't see it for quite some time. For this reason I didn't see ET for at least 10 years after it was released. But I have seen WEEKEND AT BERNIE'S II. There isn't enough room here to discuss plot points and most of you already know the gist anyway. Just know that this is a fantastic comedy. The twists and turns keep you guessing until the very end. I think the movie does a superb job of portraying the story and issues without preaching to the viewer. That being said, it's impossible for an educated viewer not to see the flaws.
