The analogy to the hilarious 1989 movie, Weekend at Bernie's was obviously too much to resist. Does that sound caddy, or downright mean? It probably won't draw much criticism ... since we're talking about Bernie Madoff and his ex-beach house that is ready to hit the market.
Take a look at this Bloomberg video concerning Madoff's beach shack (estimated at $7-$10 million) and New York's Montauck's housing market in an interview with Johnathan Miller of Matrix fame. Click here to see video if it does not appear below.
The video is a presentation of the property by a gun-wielding U.S. Marshall cum real estate salesman. If you've seen the movie Weekend at Bernie's, you'll appreciate the similarity of settings, sans brilliant sunny weather.
