Director: Ted Kotcheff
Stars: Andrew McCarthy, Jonathan Silverman, Catherine Mary Stewart, Terry Kiser
Vacation destination: Bernie's summer house, Hampton Island
Dark sunglasses and white chinos on, mudslide in hand while doing the conga, Bernie (Terry Kiser) is not about to let a little thing like death get in the way of his beach getaway—gotta admire his resolve!
Bernie is the center of attention at his "floating party" thanks to some convincing propping courtesy of employees Larry (McCarthy) and Richard (Silverman), whose motives for pretending their boss is alive are questionable, but whose talent for hiding he's dead are undeniable—Bernie is the host with the most (rigor mortis)!
Despite Bernie's unique circumstances, we still learned a few things about kicking back from this deceased bossman: Lay back, dress to impress (Where can we cop that robin's egg blue jacket?), and let the half-dressed, mostly drunk women fall all over you. That's the ticket.
