Weekend at Hugo’s
Last month Hugo Chavez returned to Cuba for more cancer treatments. The Venezuelan President’s cancer has spread and his future isn’t looking good. Last week a rush of family and friends flew to Cuba to be with the ailing leader. Since that time, there hasn’t been any news about Chavez’s condition. It’s apparent the man will not be in Venezuela for his re-election swearing-in ceremony on Thursday. Is he alive? Is he dead? Will the people around him pull “a Bernie?” Ya’ never know.
In case you don’t know what “a Bernie” is, you have to see the movie Weekend at Bernie’s. It’s a story about two employees of an insurance company who go to the owner of the company to inform him that they’ve uncovered some insurance fraud. When the two arrive at Bernie’s beach house they find their boss dead. Afraid they’ll be accused of the murder the two employees manipulate Bernie’s dead body to appear as though he is still alive. It’s a very funny movie.
Here’s the trailer for Weekend at Bernie’s:
