Storyline

After their adventure at Bernie's weekend house (events of "Weekend At Bernie's") accountants/programmers oafish Larry and up-tight Richard return to New York only to be blamed by the insurance company they all worked for Bernie's theft of two million dollars and fired. 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>

Is as bad and pointless as you already know it is
17 August 2005 | by bob the mooSee all my reviews

Larry and Richard are pretty pleased with themselves for supposedly uncovering the fact that Bernie Lomax was stealing from the company. However, $2million is still missing and the company's internal investigator, Arthur Hummel believe that Larry and Richard know just where it is. Meanwhile the cartel also want their money and decide to go to extremes to get it back – employing a voodoo queen to raise Bernie from the dead.

I know why I decided to watch this film but I am struggling to come up with a reason to review it. Is anything I know about the film now different from what I expected? Is it fair for me to criticise it for faults that are obvious from the opening credits onwards? What right to an opinion do I have considering I'm the sort of person who knowingly sits down to watch Weekend at Bernie's II? Regardless though, I should put down some thoughts since this is one of those films that has no reason to exist and will (hopefully) just slip away with a decade or two. The plot is one big massive shoehorn to get Bernie's corpse back up and around. I say shoehorn because not only does it involve voodoo but also something about Bernie becoming animated when music plays – setting up all manner of "hilarious" scenarios. Of course this is where it all falls to pieces because it simply isn't funny in the slightest and retreads all the ground it covered in the first film (and even then it was basic).

The cast don't really help, especially the tiresome mugging of Silverman and McCarthy, two actors for whom it speaks volume that these films pretty much represent the high point of their careers. Silverman is bland and dull while McCarthy thinks that laughs will just flow like wine if he just keeps shrieking, pulling faces and wearing garish costumes. Kiser has a thankless role and I spent lots of the film wondering if he cries when he tries to sleep. Beyer is pretty but also pretty vacant but at least Wright and James are amusing at times. Bostwick can be funny but here he isn't, mainly because the film has nothing of value for him to do. The only other person of note is Dourdan, who probably owes very little of his CSI success to his work in this film.

Overall an unfunny, stupid and pointless film that is everything you know it's going to be. There isn't anything of value here at all and only very undemanding viewers who are in silly moods, juvenile AND drunk will enjoy it.
