Henry Rollins: Shock and Awe #

Released 1/1/2005

He also tears across the American political and cultural landscape and ventures into more private territory, talking about his eclectic career from melody to ebooks to TV and film, sharing his fascinating insights from traveling the globe and revealing his hilariously unsuccessful find for love. Filmed at the Paramount Theater in Seattle on his spoken word tour.

Weekend at Bernie's Reviews:

Maybe I'm just stupid, but I love this movie. I still remember when it came out and maybe it's just nostalgia because I watched it so many times when I was nine years old, but I still play watching it. It does a cute nice job at catching the look and feel of the late 80s. All the hairstyles and clothing are cute dated but to me, that's all part of the fun. It all begins when our guys, Richard and Larry, explore a $2 million insurance fraud scam in their company. When they report it to their boss, Bernie (Terry Kiser) he seems grateful and invites them to his beach house for labor day weekend. As it turns out, Bernie is the one doing the scamming and has hired a mob hitman to take them out. Tiny does Bernie know, that the mob has decided that Bernie has been a tiny too careless and they have decided to take him out instead. So, by the time Richard and Larry reach the island, they explore that Bernie is dead from what looks like a drug-overdose. Instead of calling the cops, the less than bright Larry, decides it better to pretend that he didn't die. This will work since all of the island partyers are cute self-absorbed and clueless. This is where it begins getting funny.Since the hitman is still on the island, he keeps seeing Bernie, who he thought he killed and keeps re-killing him. It's hilarious, because the men really don't have a clue that the hitman is even around. Watching them lug a dead corpse around, making him look alive, is one of the highlights. The fact that all of the islanders trust he's alive is even funnier. One of my favourite parts of the film was Andrew McCarthy's performance as Larry. His slacker part killed me and he has some really funny lines. What ever happened to him? Jonathan Silverman also does a nice job with an underwritten part. He plays the ulcer-bound Richard who SO tries to be the moral center of the situation. Terry Kiser is incredible, as everytime and he plays a dead guy VERY well. Some of the items that he has to do, I really can't see anyone else pulling off as well. My favourite scenes came when Bernie was alive. The guy is such an wonderful jerk, he's now fun to hate. Ignore the another comments on here, and go receive this one. It's nice for some laughs and I STILL receive a lot out of it always I watch it. A nice semi-black comedy. Go pick it up and look for the sequel. I enjoyed it as well, although not quite as much.


This is one of the funniest movies ever made. Sure, it's stupid, and it should never really happen, but it is hilarious. The 3 main actors are great, esp. Terry Kiser (Bernie). The boat stage is the best. Anyone with a sense of humor will love this movie.


Weekend at Bernies! Sure it is dumb. But the comedy is so smartly done that it makes it hilarious. I for one laugh my butt off each time I watch this movie. It is one of those films that cheers you up if you are having a terrible day. The duo of McCarthy and Silverman is almost flawless. They are unbelievable to watch. Together they almost remind me of classic pairs like Laurel & Hardy or Abbot & Costello. If you just sit back and relax this film can really tickle your funny bone. It even might create you `drop dead from laughing'. Oh.was that to corny.sorry. But honestly, this is a nice film. Give it a test someday when you have nothing else to do or are having a party. (But beware just rent this one. The second one, although it has its moments, doesn't meet up to the original)
