A young department store intern falls in love with a female store mannequin who is really a peasant girl fallen under a thousand year spell. She comes to life whenever he removes the cursed necklace from her.
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

When Charles and Henry are released from jail and walk across the street, there is a crew member with a walkie-talkie behind them telling people not to walk into the shot. Some people even stop and watch the scene being filmed. See more »

What are you doing?
Oh, I lost the chicken.
No, no, no. This chicken's with me.

No one could ever deny the hilarity of "Weekend at Bernies," but I know that many of you were wondering, "How can they duplicate the magic?" I won't lie, I was briefly--just briefly--concerned that making a sequal to the original would be a mistake. It took me exactly one minute to realize that my earlier fears were completely unfounded. Seeing Bernie, who again was played beautifully by Terry kiser, brought me near tears with his absolutley on-the-mark timeing. Ladies and gentlemen, this man is a genius. I don't think that I'm spoiling anything by saying that, yes, Bernie is still dead. And that's what makes mister Kiser's performance that much greater (playing a dead man who is under a voodoo curse is no walk in the park!) Bernie dances. Bernie waterskis. Bernie flirts with gorgeous women. ALL WHILE BEING A CORPSE! I could go on and on about Mr. Kiser's performance, but I will let you experience it on your own. Adrew Mcarthy and Jonathen Silverman are both back and are funnier than ever as well. Those two play so well off of each other that I would be surprised if a sitcom was not in the works. I'll end here by saying that this movie will change your life, it's really that fantastic. And please, for your own sake, find the director's cut, you wont be dissapointed.
