Weekend at Bernie’s III
A couple of years ago, a couple friends and I put together this fine film for the 48-hour film festival. Basically, we spent two days getting high, bowling, swimming, eating pizza and, oh yeah, GLORIOUSLY REVIVING THE MAGNIFICENT WEEKEND AT BERNIE’S FRANCHISE. I wrote most of the dialogue and even acted a little (I play my most treasured role yet: Sexually Frightened Dead Person Wrangler). We didn’t win among professionally produced films, but the Phoenix New Times did call the film “the funniest (and shortest) sequel to an ’80s movie.” Not too shabby.
SIDE NOTE: My parents showed this to my Grandma, who had neither seen Weekend at Bernie’s, nor anything on the Internet ever. She described the video as “terrifying.”
