I'm looking for a comedy movie where two(or three??) men using the dead body of a man, possibly their boss to hide the fact that he's dead and trying to find out how he is dead?

From what I recall, the dead man is a very rich businessman who is killed by his business partner/friend. The event happens at a beach house or place like that. The rich man just bought the house and an evening party was being held there.

I think he is killed during the party by injecting some poison into his body by a brutal assassin. The main characters play many pranks with the dead body to avoid others from knowing the fact that he's dead.

I think the timeline of the movie is between late 90's and early 2000's..

Weekend at Bernie's probably, but it's been awhile.

A pair of losers try to pretend that their murdered employer is really alive, but the murderer is out to "finish him off."

@anem ator, On the one hand, I'm disappointed that you beat me to answering this. I knew the answer as soon as a read the title of the question. On the other hand, I'm glad to see I'm not the only one who's ever seen this movie. – druciferre Sep 3 '13 at 17:03
@RKN, You should also check out the sequel to the movie, Weekend at Bernie's II. In the sequel, Bernie's body is stolen from the morgue, and a voodoo ritual is performed on him to make him walk to where he hid the money he stole from the company. – druciferre Sep 3 '13 at 17:07
