Jack Black reteams with Richard Linklater in this latest film, a tale that loudly proclaims "What you're fixing to see is a true story." Set in small town Texas, Black stars as the slightly effeminate Bernie Tiede, a local mortician and all round good guy - the kind of guy who'll go the extra mile to ensure the widows are all happy after the event by delivering flowers, hugs and the personal touch. Plus, his dedication to his community sees him delivering everything they need - and more. But when Bernie befriends the nastiest (and latest) widow in town (played with relish by Shirley MacLaine), the friendship pushes Bernie over the edge and he commits murder. Jack Black impresses mightily in this - his subtle dialled-down performance (as opposed to the usual OTT he brings) means his character feels multi dimensional and real; and with Linklater using plenty of talking head interviews to get into the small town frame of mind, everything's deliciously put together for a cinematic feast
