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.

Andrew McCarthy 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!
Deleted Scenes
When movies are made, scenes are often left on the cutting room floor.
Alternate Versions
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...
