I wasn’t expecting much out of Bernie. I’d lost my taste for Jack Black right around the time I got into the upper levels of high school. But I wasn’t just pleasantly surprised, Bernie gave me a revelatory performance by Black, a deliciously twisted and dark comedic film filled with grotesque small-town denizens who wouldn’t seem out of place in a Southern Gothic short story from Faulkner ... read more

An extremely underrated comedy movie for obvious reasons, Jack black in a leading role tells us pretty much everything we need to know, he haven't been in a decent movie since forever, but this movie proves that you shouldn't judge jack black by his previous work, because his performance in this movie is something you haven't seen before.

Black Comedy Gold.

“An extremely underrated comedy movie for obvious reasons, Jack black in a leading role tells us pretty much everything we need to know, he haven't been in a decent movie since forever, but this movie proves that you shouldn't judge jack black by his previous work, because his performance in this movie is something you haven't seen before.

Based on true events, it's tells the story of Bernie, a very nice guy from small town in Texas who works as mortician, he's very social and he loves his town and he helps people and everybody love him, the movie looks like a Docudrama because as you follow Bernie along, there are too many people living in that town being interviewed, but those people are actors, so it's not a Docudrama, it's a full length movie.

The movie is very nice ” read more

“I wasn’t expecting much out of Bernie. I’d lost my taste for Jack Black right around the time I got into the upper levels of high school. But I wasn’t just pleasantly surprised, Bernie gave me a revelatory performance by Black, a deliciously twisted and dark comedic film filled with grotesque small-town denizens who wouldn’t seem out of place in a Southern Gothic short story from Faulkner or O’Connor. That it’s based on a true story isn’t surprising, the real world is a far stranger place than any writer’s imagination could ever be.

It tells the story of a happy-go-lucky mortician who befriends a small town’s shrillest and meanest old wealthy widow. As their friendship begins to turn more and more controlling and abusive, he snaps and kills her. The hilarious pa” read more

"First viewing - Nov. 16th It's possible I got more out of Bernie than some people around here simply because I've lived in Texas for so long that the characters ring completely true for me. I loved the presentation of the story, which enhanced the fact that it's based on real events, and Jack Black gives one of his best performances. I was entertained from start to finish, but for some reason it fell short of crossing the line over into greatness for me. Definitely worth a look though. Current"

2012- Best to Worst (69 movies items)

"This was a pretty good movie. It was more of a drama than a comedy though. This was a different role for Jack Black which I liked. I pretty much felt what his character felt and I was amazed when I found out that this was a true story. One problem I had with this movie was Matthew McConaughey's character. He just wasn't that great and I feel like that they could've done the movie without him, but I guess that's just me."
