Weekend at Bernie's II is a comedy film directed by Robert Klane and produced by Victor Drai and Joseph Perez. The film stars Andrew McCarthy, Terry Kiser and Jonathan Silverman. This sequel resumes the story of executives Larry Wilson, played by Andrew McCarthy, and Richard Parker, played by Jonathan Silverman, as well as their late manager, Bernie Lomax, played by Terry Kiser.
In the original Weekend at Bernie's, Larry and Richard needed to effectively pretend that their boss was still living so as to prevent their own murders. Weekend at Bernie's II picks up where the story left off. In this film, Larry and Richard plan to use their former supervisor to locate $2 million he had hidden in the U.S. Virgin Islands.
But before packing the man's body into a travel case and traveling to the islands, Bernie is brought halfway back to life in a failed voodoo ritual and forced to march in the direction of the buried money whenever music is played. In addition, Larry and Richard are fleeing from the mob, as well as a pair of the voodoo woman's friends and an insurance firm agent employed to recoup the illegal $2 million. The agent often finds himself wondering if he is beginning to lose his mind anytime he witnesses Bernie walking, certain that the man is deceased.
Richard is poisoned by the "mobu" and needs to locate the money before dusk in order to retrieve the remedy. The gangsters and voodoo woman are detained by police, and Bernie heads a parade of goats at a local festival. Larry gives the $2 million back to the insurance agent after discovering that Bernie had in fact embezzled $3 million. Larry and Richard spend the rest of the money to buy themselves a yacht sailed by a crew of women.
Weekend at Bernie's II was released in 1993. The film runs for 97 minutes.
