Weekend at Bernie’s is one of those movies a lot of people find funny while totally ignoring the horrific reality of the situation. In the 1989 film, Andrew McCarthy and Jonathan Silverman play two men who find their boss dead and decide to hang out with his body, eventually using his clout to live the high life. The film was successful enough that everyone came back for a sequel in 1993. Clever idea but pretty morbid when you actually think about animating and transporting a corpse.

It’s even more morbid when you realize two men in Denver kind of duplicated the film last month when the found their friend dead in his apartment and took the body around town, running up his tab at local bars and strip clubs. Fortunately, they left him in the car for all of these activities. Read the details after the jump. Read More »
