        Weekend at Bernie's II? Really? Really!? Yes, they really made a sequel to Weekend at Bernie's. But how do you continue the party now that Bernie's officially dead and in the morgue? Voodoo. In order to get back money that Bernie owned them, a couple of gangsters use voodoo to resurrect Bernie as a zombie. As terrible as it may sound, it's actually much worse, much, much worse. While the sheer audaciousness of Weekend at Bernie's II does deliver a few laughs, it's just too damned stupid.

        Sequel to Weekend at Bernie's is an awful sequel to a mediocre sequel. I really don't know why they made a sequel because the original was pretty bland, and didn't have anything going for it in terms of comedy. This follow up, recycles ideas seen in the first film, but adds a new angle in order to hide the lack of originality with this film. This entry doesn't boast anything funny about it, and the attempt at comedy is poor. The result is a sequel that is a waste of time, and it also shows that you can't pull off a good sequel in the genre. It's only on the very rare occasion that comedy sequels work, and it's due to a strong script and effective comedic performances, which isn't present here. If you're looking for a fun sequel, you'll be disappointed, and will wonder why you even bothered with seeing it. Weekend at Bernie's was a severely flawed comedy that didn't deliver good laughs, and it was completely unnecessary because the first film didn't do anything special with its ideas. Overall, this sequel fails to grab your attention, and it's a straining affair, one that tries too hard with awful material. Don't expect to enjoy this film, as the film just ends up falling flat due to poor performances, nonexistent comedic bits and lazy direction. Weekend at Bernie's II is a poor sequel, one that definitely isn't worth seeing, and if you've seen the original, it should be enough because the filmmakers don't do anything new or original here and they reuse elements that we've seen before and add a few elements to try and make it work. Ultimately, this is a train wreck of a movie and you'd be better off watching something else instead.

        When I read the plot I thought this would slaughter the greatness of the first film, ended up being a pleasant surprise

        I did enoy the idea from the first movie, but this was just plain stupid. I know in some movies you really have to suspend velief, but this is quite ridiculous. A real waste of time with a laugh here and there.
