In the '80s comedy classic 'Weekend at Bernie's,' two insurance company employees discover their boss is dead, and in order to save their own butts from being killed by a hitman, they pretend the old guy is still alive. Shenanigans ensue, of course.
24 years later, the 'Weekend at Bernie's' movies persist in pop culture thanks to real life copycats and Bernie's voodoo dance from the sequel going viral. Let's take a look at what the cast has been up to since then.
'The Office' is closed. After the tearful series finale, we no longer have the adventures of Jim, Pam, Dwight and the gang to look forward to every week. And as we watched the 'Office' finale, we couldn't help but remark how different all the characters were after the past nine years.
Normally, when we do a Then & Now feature, we match up the character with the actor but with 'The Office' we have the ability to look at the characters from Season 1 and see them now, at the very end of Season 9. See how far 'The Office' characters came below.
1991's 'L.A. Story' was a labor of love for Steve Martin -- in addition to starring in the whimsical romantic comedy, he also wrote the hilarious script.
Mixing surreal gags with romantic misunderstandings, Martin's sun-dappled update of 'A Midsummer Night's Dream' is a gentle satire of its titular city and all the movers and shakers who live within its temperate confines. It was also a vehicle for a lot of fun cameos.

The 2002 road movie 'Crossroads' was meant to be Britney Spears' golden ticket to big screen fame. It didn't quite work out that way. But over the years the film has earned a fan following for its cheesy plot, frequent musical performances and cast of up-and-coming young stars.

In the Brat Pack classic 'Pretty in Pink' a girl from the wrong side of the tracks (Molly Ringwald) has to chose between the rich but good-hearted Blane (Andrew McCarthy) or her geeky long-time buddy Duckie (Jon Cryer). It's a bonafide 80s classic. See what the cast of 'Pretty in Pink' is up to 27 years after one of their biggest movies hit theaters.
In 1996, the beloved Roald Dahl children's novel 'Matilda' was adapted into a movie directed by Danny DeVito. The film starred Mara Wilson, one of biggest child stars of the '90s, and quickly became a cult classic. (The underdog tale is now also a Broadway musical.) Check out what the cast of 'Matilda' are up to these days below.
'Labyrinth' was a bit of a flop when it was released in 1986. But the Jim Henson-directed fantasy film has had a second life, thanks to VHS, DVD and Blu-ray, and has become a cult classic among kids old enough not to be afraid of goblins.
As testament to its belated success, primary human stars David Bowie and Jennifer Connelly have both commented on how often they are still recognized by children for their roles in the film.
See what the cast -- and the puppeteers behind 'Labyrinth's' wondrous creatures -- are up to these days.
The 1985 black comedy 'Better Off Dead' tells the tale of a high school student (John Cusack) who falls into a deep depression after his girlfriend dumps him.
The film got good reviews, performed decently at the box office and has become a cult classic, thanks to its quirky characters and memorable one-liners ("Two dollars!")
One person who doesn't like the film is Cusack. He reportedly walked out of the first screening and blasted director "Savage" Steve Holland for "making him look foolish." Cusack did seem to soften his stance on 'Better Off' during a recent Reddit AMA, saying he thought the film "could have been better" but that he's "glad people still love it."
See what Cusack and the rest of the cast of 'Better Off Dead' are up to these days below.
'Fight Club' was more controversial than successful when it came out in 1999. But David Fincher's gritty and highly stylized film adaptation of novelist Chuck Palahniuk's meditation on consumerism and masculinity has only gained in stature since its release and is now considered to be a modern day screen classic.
