The Breakdown of Weekend at Bernie's


It wasn't critically acclaimed or a massive box office powerhouse, but Weekend at Bernie's not only had quite a few fans upon its release but it is probably better remembered now then many bigger hits from the 1980s. Something about two guys trying to pretend a corpse is still alive has resonated with some movie fans. The Movie Breakdown has decided that the comedy needed some deep-dive attention as we talk over an hour about this picture. If you are a huge fan then you may not like our review of it, but we try to be fair and look at some of the history and analyze why we think it has endured longer than other comedies.

As always, we had great time recording the episode and we really hope you love it as well. If you do, then please help us out by spreading the word to other movie fans.
