Weekend at Bernie's

When they go to the president (Bernie) with a serious financial error on a printout, he pretends to be thrilled and invites them to his beach house for the weekend. He actually plans on having them killed. Bernie is also fooling around with the girlfriend of his mafia partner. When the partner has Bernie killed, the boys end up having to pretend Bernie is still alive as the frustrated hit man tries time and time again to complete the job.

There are always too many people.

Excuse me, miss.

Oh, shit.

Good weekend, Bob?

- You going to say something?

- Shut up.

- You are blowing it.

- Shut...

Please, shut up, all right?

Thank you.


Try witty.

Say, "You know what would look

good on you?"

- "Me." Huh?

- Oh, please.

- Richard, that is a very good line.

- Enough, look...

- if I wanted to talk to her, I'll talk to her.

- Talk to her.

- Would you talk to her?

- Would you stop?

- You want me to talk to her?

- Yes.

Okay. Shut up.

Excuse me.

My aunt is very sick.



I don't believe this, she's...

Now, don't flagellate yourself

over this, Richard.

It was a very good effort.

You'll get her next time.

Why did I just say that?

Larry, I don't even have an aunt.

So what?

Anything going on?

There are these messages.

And you are late for

the creative sales meeting, Mr. Lomax.

- Excuse us, Mr. Lomax.

- Let me get that, sir.

Sammy. Hank. How are you?

Richard Parker, sir.

- Larry Wilson.

- Whatever.

There's nothing from a Doreena,

a Martha, Judy?

- No.

- Well, that's their tough luck.

- Excuse us, Mr. Lomax.

- What?

There's something

we would like to show you.

Wait. It's Monday morning.

After lunch, right?

Quite a bit after lunch.


Yeah, I got it, Franois.

That's $2.


Look at Lomax.


My God. Look at her.

My God.

Jesus. That guy.

Beautiful apartment. House at the beach.

Babes. A boat. A car.

Do you know how much it costs

to park a car in Manhattan every month?

- More than my rent.

- I mean, it's only fair.

His car is a bit bigger than your apartment.

So my apartment is small. It's dark.

It's hot. It's in a high-crime area.

Beats living with Mom and Dad.

All right. Enough.

It's just until I can afford something decent.
