Life imitates "art" as Denver morons pull a real-life Weekend at Bernie's

09.17.2011

Jonathan Silverman and Andrew McCarthy had such a good idea, they did it twice -- lugging around a deceased Terry Kiser and using his clout for their own benefit.

Two Denver dudes thought the amusingly morbid concept of the WEEKEND AT BERNIE'S movies was clever enough to replicate in real life.

While not as extensive or creative as the corpse usage in the movies, Robert Jeffrey Young and Mark Rubinson had plenty of chuckles courtesy of their dead friend Jeffrey Jarrett -- when they found him unresponsive at his home, they loaded him in a car and left him in the vehicle while they drank in a pub on his dime. After dumping the body back at his house, they took off with the late chum's ATM card and got dinner (at Viva Burrito, naturally), withdrew $400, and hit a strip club called Shotgun Willie's, yeehaw.

After all that fun was done, they informed the police that their friend might be dead at his home, because they're not savages. Entirely.

The man's cause of death hasn't been identified yet, and his freeloading former buddies are charged with abusing a corpse, identity theft, criminal impersonation and mimicking a lowbrow 80s comedy.

Extra Tidbit: At least they had the decency to imitate a movie that featured Catherine Mary Stewart...

Wait a second - 'Weekend at Bernie's' *wasn't* based on a true story?

You know what they could've done to not get caught...

Turn him into a zombie and conga him into the ocean.

This would work for a day I suppose, though I would think that after a few hours the body would start to smell pretty bad. When does decomposition start taking place?

haha funny and disturbing..

Jonathan Silverman and Andrew McCarthy never actually called the cops and reported Bernie dead... the cops showed up and found a corpse at the end of the first movie.
still the REASON these two morons got caught was because life doesnt always work like the movies... in fact... it NEVER works like the movies, thats why we watch movies... it's escapism.. no escaping a jail cell for these two. LOL

I dont get it, they didnt walk him around and pretend he was alive, how is this similar? Plus the guys in the movie got away with it and were awesome, unlike these two dudes

Still not as bad as the drunk guy who accidentally decapitated his friend and left him in the car over night without realizing what happened, despite being covered in blood.
