Two young men are trying to make their way in a corporation. One on charm, the other on hard work. When they go to the president (Bernie) with a serious financial error on a printout, he pretends to be thrilled and invites them to his beach house for the weekend. He actually plans on having them killed. Bernie is also fooling around with the girlfriend of his mafia partner. When the partner has Bernie killed, the boys end up having to pretend Bernie is still alive as the frustrated hit man tries time and time again to complete the job.

Aw, get your ass outta here, it's too hot!
In the mid-1990s, an alternate edit of the film was released to tie in with the release of Weekend at Bernie's II
. Most significantly, the scene in which Richard interrupts Larry when he is having sex with the woman is trimmed, so that the woman does not appear. This makes the scene a little odd, as it's not obvious what Larry is doing in his room, and in total about 10 seconds of footage are cut. This was presumably changed to change the context of the sequel - the conclusion of Weekend at Bernie's II is dependent on Larry still being a virgin, and the original edit of the film strongly implied that he had been engaging in sexual activity. This version of the film now appears on the Region 1 DVD, but not on the R2. See more
