On this day:
At 5th July of 1989, the movie "Weekend at Bernie's" was released.

There is really nothing funny about a dead man and his corpse. Yet occasionally corpses happen to be the subject of humor. There was the amusing film (based on a Robert Louis Stevenson novel) "The Wrong Box", which was elegantly done, and was quite good. There was Alfred Hitchcock's attempt at a totally funny black comedy regarding hiding a dead body in New England, called "The Trouble with Harry". And best of all was this 1989 comedy directed by Ted Kotcheff about a body that takes on a "life" of it's own.

“Weekend at Bernie’s” is the story of two ambitious young men – one serious (Jonathan Silverman), one funny (Andrew McCarthy) – who are convinced that they’re headed to the top of an insurance company when they uncover a scheme that has been defrauding the firm. Uh, oh. The head of the firm is the actual culprit (he’s in cahoots with a mob boss) and since neither of them are looking to get caught so the plan is to kill off McCarthy and Silverman.

Except, of course, it doesn’t work out that way. The mob actually wants to get rid of Kiser most of all for several reasons (and does) but that only opens the floodgates of hilarity as the dead guy keeps popping up all over the place.

McCarthy as “Larry Wilson” does his usual “Brat Pack” type acting here and there’s nothing special from him. He was also in “St. Elmo’s Fire,” “Mannequin” and “Less Than Zero.” When an actor’s career is defined by “Weekend at Bernie’s” as well as “Mannequin,” he gets a thumbs up here despite his poor execution of the craft (you’ll believe the craft was executed if you watch McCarthy in the sequel).

On the other hand, Silverman is cast perfectly as “Richard Parker.” He easily conveys the character’s professionalism set on a foundation of naiveté and earnestness. Silverman is up to the task of the role and would be the best here, but for Kaiser’s physical comedy. He was also in “Caddyshack II”, “Brighton Beach Memoirs” and TV shows including “Psych.”

Now it comes the real star of the show: Terry Kiser as Bernie Lomax. Through half the film he doesn’t have a line and his body is supposedly controlled by McCarthy and Silverman, but he handles it so well and conveys for what must be one of the toughest kind of roles that actors face. He is just nasty enough as the crooked businessman in his speaking parts to show his ability. 

Then you get the physical comedy (he did some and owes the rest to a stunt double who got beat up in shots where you don’t see close-ups of the star). Kiser reanimated in the “Weekend at Bernie’s” sequel and was also in “The Pledge” as well as quite a number of TV series including “Baretta,” “WKRP in Cincinnati” and even “Blossom.”

The best part of the film is the three of them together. The boys must use Kiser’s body to make people believe he’s alive so they can get away from the Hamptons alive themselves (“Bernie” has a gorgeous seaside residence). Kiser’s propped up poolside “waving” to passersby on the beach (a string tied to his hand); he’s put aboard his boat, falls out and then “skis” into several buoys; and doesn’t have to say a word at a party to be a part of negotiating a deal for a Porsche or being playful with a woman. The boys even use a stapler to secure his toupee to his head after it comes off at one point.

Speaking of women, Catherine Parks plays Tina, who is the mob boss’ mistress and the object of Kiser’s affections (this is the biggest key why he has to be killed). Parks’ scene where she goes into his bedroom where the boys have hidden him is great. You don’t see anything, but she comes down with a very satisfied strut and when asked how it went, she purrs, “Never better.” She has also been in the sci-fi thriller “Looker” with Susan Dey.

The female lead is by Catherine Mary Stewart, who plays Gwen Saunders. Silverman pursues her but her most expressive emotion is the shock of finally accepting that Kiser is dead. Parks does a better job here and Stewart was much better in the neat sci-fi thriller “Night of the Comet” and “The Last Starfighter.”

For all its comedy and elevation to pretty much cult status today (plus it debuted the day after the Fourth of July), “Weekend at Bernie’s” was only the 39th ranked film at the domestic box office in 1989 as it brought in $30.2 million. It brought in just over twice its $15 million budget but was far behind the No. 1 film that year... “Batman” at $251.1 million. Other comedies that easily finished above it were “Look Who’s Talking” and “Ghostbusters II.”

"Weekend at Bernie's" is one of those films that can be watched over and over and still make someone laugh. Kiser's remarkably physical performance as Bernie's corpse is extremely funny and raises this film to the level of classic.
