Terry Kiser Weekend at Bernie’s II

He was cast as Bernie Lomax in the 1993 American black comedy film Weekend at Bernie’s II.


Larry Wilson and Richard Parker are in a Manhattan morgue when they come across their late CEO, Bernie Lomax. Larry falsely claims Bernie as his uncle in order to obtain some of Bernie’s belongings, including Bernie’s credit card. Larry informs Richard that he discovered a key to a safe deposit box in St. Thomas, US Virgin Islands. Mobsters hire a voodoo queen named Mobu to find the $2 million Bernie stole. She dispatches two servants to retrieve Bernie’s body, reanimate him with a voodoo ceremony, and return him to her. Their attempts to resurrect Bernie are marred by mishaps.

When Larry, Richard, and Claudia are reunited, they are surprised to see Bernie moving and realize he is leading them to the $2 million. They try to bring Bernie to the surface, but he won’t let go of the chest, which is too heavy to lift out of the water. Bernie was last seen leading a carnival parade with Henry and Charles, who had been transformed into goats by voodoo.
