Leave your corpse-related phobias at the door–today we’re matching up Weekend at Bernie’s and Swiss Army Man.
The 80’s buddy comedy and the 2016 (horror? independent? romantic comedy?) film utilize corpses as props, both for different purposes. Bernie is used as a social equalizer, allowing Larry (Andrew McCarthy) and Richard (Jonathan Silverman) to freely hob-nob with 80s “elites,” while Manny (Daniel Radcliffe) is used as a literal swiss army knife to help Hank (Paul Dano) out of any number of situations.
Up next: Man of Steel and Batman v. Superman.
