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.

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.
Thanks to Belch
Terry Kiser who played Bernie got a few broken ribs during shooting, due to the stunts needed as he played a dead man!

The orginal "Weekend At Bernies" had Larry in the bedroom with a lady.
