The crew had to deal with hatching baby turtles as the beach is a breading ground for the little guys.

Bernie's beach house was built on the agreement that it would be taken down and the beach would return to it's orginal state. This is because of the turtles that are found there.
first read the script for the part of Richard, but as he read it, he loved Larry's character and so chose to play him instead.
Terry Kiser who played Bernie got a few broken ribs during shooting, due to the stunts needed as he played a dead man!

When movies are made, scenes are often
left on the cutting room floor.
Sometimes, there will be several versions
of a movie floating about on cable, tv or video etc. Other times, a Director may
release a special cut of the movie.
The orginal "Weekend At Bernies" had Larry in the bedroom with a lady. The scene had to be deleted for the home video version because in the sequel, in order to save Richard's life, the witch doctor needed blood from a virgin and used Larry's. In the original version, this would not have worked, for obvious reasons...
