I know I said I was taking a little break, but I just watched this film tonight and I really enjoyed it. I've only lived in Texas for two years and I knew nothing about the case, but I liked the quirkiness of this story.Jack Black is totally awesome in this role. Gone is the usual craziness that we usually expect from him. He nailed the part of a God loving funeral director that everybody loves. Unfortunately, he's also guilty of murder. It's a true story, but it is Hollywood's version of it, so who knows how true it is. Skip Hollandsworth, a journalist in Texas wrote about Bernie and also helped write the screenplay.
