    DENVER, Sept. 16 (UPI) -- Two Denver men face abuse of a corpse charges for attempting to re-enact the movie, "Weekend at Bernie's," police said.

    Robert Jeffrey Young, 43, and Mark Rubinson, 25, allegedly loaded Jeffrey Jarrett into a car after finding him unresponsive at his southeast Denver home Aug. 27. The two then allegedly went to Teddy T's bar and grill and Sam's No. 3, leaving Jarrett in Rubinson's Lincoln Navigator, while they drank -- on Jarrett's tab, The Denver Post reported. They also allegedly used Jarrett's bank card to get money out of an ATM.

    Later, they took Jarrett's body back home, went out for a meal, withdrew $400 more and headed for a strip club, police said.

    "This is a bizarre and unfortunate crime," Denver police spokesman Sonny Jackson said. "This isn't anything you want to have happen to a loved one. You want them treated with respect in death."

    It was unclear whether Jarrett could have been saved if the men had called 911, police said.

    Court appearances were set for Sept. 27 for Young and Oct. 4 for Rubinson.

    In the 1989 movie, two men lug around their employer's body, making people think he is alive.

    He certainly wasn't the life of the party.
    Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil;
    Who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness;
    Who substitute bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!
    21 Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes
    And clever in their own sight! Isaiah 5:20-21 NASB
