Synopsis: Bernie is a dark comedy based on a true story about a Mortician in Carthage Texas who is loved by the community, especially the older women. Bernie befriends a widow millionaire and soon finds himself suffocated by the old women’s needs. He then chooses a path that no one thought he was capable of.

Review: I thought the movie was OK, it was interesting how some of the movie was shot like a documentary. Jacks performance as Bernie is what kept this movie going for me. I felt this movie was very different from the rest of his filmography in that it was morbid when compared to School of Rock and Dazed and Confused. When watching the film i kind of got a feeling of Nacho Libre( without the cheezy mexican accent).
