Weekend at Bernie

Continuity mistake: Bernie's facial expression changes from the smile on his face when he first get injected with drugs to a smirk throughout the movie, to no expresssion and back again.

Continuity mistake: When Larry and Richard are on the rooftop, the sky is seen as cloudy but when the camera cuts to a different angle, the sky is clear.

Continuity mistake: When Richard and Gwen are kissing on the beach, a big wave pushes Bernie alongside them and you can see them getting wet from the wave but in the very next scene of them walking back to the house, they are dry.

Continuity mistake: Right before Richard discovers that Bernie is dead and Larry is talking about drugs becoming a career, "I watch the news. I read." There is a side/back view of Larry talking and neither his gestures or his mouth line up with what he is saying.

Continuity mistake: At the end of the movie, when the hitman comes to kill Bernie for one last time, Larry, Gwen, and Richard start running from the hitman and Gwen has her hat in her hand. They run over to the stereo and she drops it somewhere over by there. In later shots, however, you can see Gwen's hat lying right next to Bernie in front of the staircase.

Continuity mistake: When Bernie's toupee falls off they show a few scenes of him in the house sitting there with a bald head. You can see that it's a bald cap. It makes Bernie's head at least 2 inches taller.

Continuity mistake: In some scenes you can see Bernie breathing and blink his eyes when he is supposed to be dead.

Continuity mistake: In the beginning of the movie when Bernie is driving the golf cart up next to the deck of his house you see a pole with street signs, but when they are pulling Bernie in the red wagon down the ramp to dump him into the golf cart the sign is completely gone.

Other mistake: In the opening scene in the office, when Andrew McCarthy says, "Let's go to the beach" and runs off, you can see that the other guy's PC, which he has been working on, has no power cable plugged in.

Visible crew/equipment: When Bernie walks out from his office bathroom and starts talking to Richard and Larry about the insurance policies, a boom mic reflection can be seen behind him - in the mirror's upper left corner.

Audio problem: When Larry and Richard are hiding behind the couch when they hear gun shots, you see the gun making its way around the corner of the couch and when you hear the next gun shot, you can see that the kid holding the gun is not even squeezing the trigger.

MCKD

Continuity mistake: When Larry and Richard listen to the recording of the phone conversation between Bernie and Paulie, there is a slight difference to when they had the conversation live. After Bernie told Paulie where his house is located, Paulie replied with "Uh huh" which is not heard on the recording.

Continuity mistake: At the end of the movie, when the ambulance is shown backing up to Bernie's house, you can see a stretcher on the boardwalk that gets bumped and rolls down. This stretcher has Bernie on it, yet when it is bumped it is completely empty.

Continuity mistake: Just after the hit man kills Bernie he proceeds to disguise himself and pulls a folded, floppy beach hat out of his pocket. Yet when we see him getting on the boat in the next scene the same folded hat is now a perfectly round, structured hat with a brim.

Continuity mistake: When Richard and Larry see Gwen for the first time, you see Larry holding a coffee cup that he tips and holds all the way forward but nothing comes out, but yet he continues to take sips from it as Richard is talking to Gwen.

MCKD

Continuity mistake: When Larry and Richard put Bernie in the little red wagon, they take him to his golf cart and right before he falls out of the wagon, you see him putting his arm down so he can ease the fall.

MCKD

Continuity mistake: When Larry and Richard are dragging the two bodies to the closet the first one lifts up his legs for Richard to put him in.

Continuity mistake: When Larry and Richard arrive at Bernie's house and talk to the lifeguard out the front, there is only sand leading up to the house. Later when Richard leaves the party and runs onto the beach to see Gwen, and at the end when Bernie is being taken away by ambulance, there is now a wooden walkway leading down onto the sand.

Factual error: Throughout, Richard, who is supposed to be young, single and living with his parents, can be seen wearing a wedding band.

Continuity mistake: When Richard knocks out the gardener that's holding a knife, the knife lands right next to the gardener's hand (it's touching him). When Richard and Larry go to drag the gardener and the other guy, the knife is a lot farther away from the gardener's hand.
