More Info IMDb

Bernie Lomax would be the perfect host, except for one small problem: He's dead.

Larry and Richard are corporate climbers who reveal an insurance fraud to their company’s owner, Bernie Lomax. Not knowing Bernie is a mob man who was behind the fraud, they accept the invite ‘reward’ to go to Bernie’s beach house where Bernie is plotting to have them killed. But when Bernie ends up dead and no one seems to notice, the two guys decide to play it off and parade Bernie’s corpse around to avoid being implicated in his death in this lively comedy about a guy who isn’t.

Jonathan Silverman, Andrew McCarthy and TERRY KISER star in the drop dead comedy of 1989 that spawned a sequel and a dance craze that forever changed the face of the planet. Directed by RAMBO FIRST BLOOD’S, Ted Kotcheff, WEEKEND AT BERNIE’S is the weirdest comedy idea this side of SOUL MAN. Terry Kiser may have played the perfect dead guy, but rest assured he is a living working actor running The Actors Arena right here in Austin, Texas. Need us a to prove it?! We’re having Terry out ALIVE and in person for a post show Q & A! Bernie may be dead, but Terry’s still the life of the party! (Greg MacLennan)

*screening will be in 35mm
