Director: Richard Linklater
Stars: Jack Black, Shirley MacLaine, Matthew McConaughey, Rick Dial, Kay Epperson
Based on actual events that occurred in Texas, this black comedy follows Bernie (Black), a well-respected assistant mortician who becomes best of friends with a widowed, wealthy, mean-spirited woman named Marjorie (MacLaine), only to end up murdering her. A massive cover-up ensues, some rough jokes, too.
If you're hesitant because of Black's past work, take this into consideration: The film was named by Los Angeles Times readers as the "most under-appreciated" movie of 2012.
