Weekend With Bernie: the Musical
25 July 2015 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

Dominic Marsh will inherit six million dollars from his uncle if he signs an acceptance and carries out the terms of the will. He does so and discovers he must take his uncle's corpse on a trip to Monte Carlo, pursued by Nikki James (the representative of the backup heirs, a Brooklyn dog shelter) and Pamela Shaw, his uncle's lover who shot him -- accidentally. The result is a fast-paced, overplotted and mechanical musical filled with solid professionals and awful songs

I don't blame the actors, nor the camera department. There is some nice camera-work and some of the actors have proved themselves adept on stage and screen. Nonetheless, the songs are almost all pure, simple character exposition, like recitative in an opera, in which the juveniles, for example, establish their positions, one liking dogs, one disliking them; other songs include them trying to cover up their feelings by finding obvious rhymes for "nice" to not discuss their lovemaking.

There is one good musical number towards the end, an expressionistic nightmare song induced by alcohol and the corpse's disappearance. By then, however, I had lost interest and was hanging around the theater to see if I had guessed the plot twists. Alas, I had.
