Filmmaker Richard Linklater (Dazed and Confused, Before Sunset) returns to his Texas roots for this delightfully poker-faced black comedy-based on a true story-about East Texas assistant funeral home director Bernie Tiede (Jack Black). He taught Sunday school, sang in the church choir and was always willing to lend a helping hand. Everyone loved and appreciated Bernie, so it came as no surprise when he befriended Marjorie Nugent (Shirley MacLaine), an affluent widow who was as well known for her sour attitude as her fortune. Driven by her cruelty to put four bullets in her, Bernie goes to great lengths to keep up the illusion that she's still alive. So well liked is Bernie, especially by the town's elderly ladies, that nobody in town will say a bad thing about him, even after he commits the nasty crime.... Matthew McConaughey co-stars.
