I really loved both films, but I admit the whole Bernie coming to life thing in the sequel was kinda corny, but I was entertained :)

I like that Jermaine Stewart song "Hot and Cold" from the first one :)

I loved part 1, till I watched it way too many times for it to be anywhere near fascinating anymore

I'm clearly in the minority on this one, but I way preferred the second one (which came out in '93 but still had a late 80's feel to it).

Maybe because I actually saw that one first. But in all, I thought Richie & Larry's characters were a little more developed in the sequel. The whole subplot about Bernie coming to life whenever music was played, and the two guys who messed it up to begin with are enough to certify it as comedy gold with me. ;D

The tropical location didn't hurt either.

I just rented the first one about 4 months ago when me & my girlfriend had a movie night. Hadn't seen it since the late 80s, but i liked it more this time around because it had something this time around that it didn't back then which was the feeling of nostalga it gave me. It still made me laugh a lot too. I loved stuff like Bernie dopping down from the balcony on the guy that killed him. It looked like he was still alive & actually attacking the guy & the struggle looked real LOL. Also the kid burring him in the sand. Stuff like that made me laugh my a** off because i'd totally forgotten about all the gags in it.

SPOILERS:

Do you mean WAB 2?

If so, no there's a scene where he's conga dancing (his body, courtesy of the voodoo spell gone wrong, obviously reacting to the music) and he ends up attracting this girl who's there with her jerky boyfriend. Who gets in a "fight" with Bernie!

When the music stops, he goes back to being "dead", LOL, and he and the woman end up falling asleep right there on the beach (if he weren't dead, I'd be tempted to say that was pretty romantic!), where they're discovered by Larry & Richie the next morning.

Is that what you were referring to?

There were some good bits in WAB, but overall, not such a great flick.  It does make the '80s cut, 1989.

yep
It was the girlfriend of the mobster that had him killed, not Pauly, the big boss, Bernie was banging her, she rocked up hella pissed off and shagged his dead body.
How the hellw as this a comedy  ;D

I liked WAB, it's a solidly funny movie from 1989.  I've seen it many times.  I've only seen the second film once, and I remember not liking it.
