No use trying to describe Bernie. It's a one-of-a-kind inspiration. You will never feel closer to a convicted killer. show more
Where the movie is at its best is in the comically laconic, straight-to-the-camera remarks offered by Carthage's residents. (They're played by a mix of local actors and real townspeople doing partially scripted versions of themselves.) show more

Very good dark comedy. Jack Black delivers and Shirley MaClaine was perfect. Great movie with outstanding performances by all.
I had never heard of it but went on $2 night and enjoyed it so much I rented it to show some friends. We are all old farts in our forties and thi nk he should have \"dumped out of the plane\" and kept his mouth shut.
The only reason I watched this movie was because Jack Black had the lead role. Unfortunately, it was by far one of the most boring movies I have seen all year. If not for a great performance by Black, it would be hands down two stars.
