Excellent film. Well done by Linklater, a great director. Well written screenplay,clever directing, phenomenal casting in all the small supporting parts. Jack Black was perfect. A total delight. I have not seen a film as enjoyable and offbeat like this one in a long time!

Well, this is a very different kind of movie; the way it was filmed. Lots of narrative. I found myself laughing out loud many many times throughout the movie. Little kids? No, leave them at home. This is going to be a cult movie with people quoting lines. Both the leads were excellent choices. But the odd people stole the show! Go see it!

We went as a family. I talked them into it, the cast and the plot was the hook for me, but I really had no idea how cleverly the story would unfold and be told. The side interviews from "good Texan folk" were hilarious and so realistic, it really was hard to be disconnected from the story at any time.
Beautiful filming, rich colors with very accurate styling of clothes and property made for a great tale. Great one liners and some most interesting people roped together as extras to make up the numbers. Go see it, Bernie has optimism unlimited despite the terrible things he has done!

As a native of Shreveport, Louisiana, I can attest to the true to life expressions of the characters portrayed in "Bernie." Jack Black really does justice to the main character! Very funny and easy to follow plot - the perfect fit for an afternoon of mindless entertainment that will keep you smiling throughout the show!

have never been a big Jack Black fan until this movie. He plays this character beautifully! The entire cast is great and the style of the film with town people interviews just makes this something you have to see. The fact that it is a true story just makes it even more interesting.
