This is #2 of 10 Netflix movies in my queue. AARP ranks "Bernie" as "BEST COMEDY".
AARP SUMMARY: "Bernie (Jack Black) is a small-town funeral director who moves in with the domineering local matriarch (Shirley MacLaine), then kills her accidentally on purpose and hides her body in a freezer. The stars are wildly appealing and the directors spings one gleeful surprise after another."
Cast: Jack Black, Shirley MacLaine, Matthew McConaughey, Brady Coleman, Richard Robichaux, Rick Dial, Brandon Smith, Larry Jack Dotson, Merrilee McCommas, Matthew Greer
You will either love this movie or hate it. It is different in that the Director uses a combination of techniques where you have the actual townsfolk narrating their opinions about Bernie along with Bernie's acting scenes demonstrating why the townsfolk feel as they do. So whether this movie appeals to you, or not, it is worth viewing. I gave it 3 Stars.
Coming next: "Flight"
