Even after having fixed the syntax, the following returns an empty plot 
(just the axes are drawn).

Needs["MultivariateStatistics`"];
Plot3D[PDF[MultinormalDistribution[{0, 0}, {{5, -3}, {-3, 2}},
        {x, y}]], {x, -4, 4}, {y, -4, 4}, PlotRange -> All,
    PlotPoints -> 50]

So, what did you do before that? Did your try the command above with a 
fresh kernel?
