En Carthage, un tranquilo y pequeño pueblo de Texas, Bernie Tiede (Jack Black), un enterrador muy querido por todos los vecinos, traba amistad con una adinerada y malvada viuda (Shirley MacLaine) a la cual acabará matando... ¿por accidente?
Una extraordinaria comedia basada en hechos reales, dirigida por el aclamado director de Boyhood y Antes del anochecer, Richard Linklater. Magistralmente interpretada por Jack Black -que consiguió con esta interpretación una merecida nominación a los Globos de Oro- y por los ganadores del Oscar, Matthew McConaughey (Dallas Buyers Club, True Detective) y la extraordinaria Shirley MacLaine (La fuerza del cariño, El apartamento).

Bernie is hired as a mortician's assistant in a small town in Texas. He quickly becomes beloved as he volunteers for everything from directing school plays to overseeing the town Christmas decorations. He always calls on deceased family members to offer condolences. Mrs. Nugent (Shirley MacClaine) is recently widowed and is by far the richest woman in town... And the most hated. Several times Bernie brings condolences only to have the door slammed in his face.
Finally, Mrs. Nugent invites him in for tea. Soon, Bernie is not only her best friend, he is her only friend. She has lots of money and within a few months, Mrs. Nugent (Marjorie) has Bernie traveling with her, managing her investments, and he becomes, essentially, her servant/companion. Marjorie disappears.
After several months, Marjorie's stockbroker realizes he has not actually spoken to Mrs. Nugent herself, only to Bernie.
And, since there is big money involved, Marjorie's family start looking for her. Enter Danny Buck ( McConaughey) who is hysterically funny. McConaughey's mother is a riot as a community member who doesn't care whether Bernie did it.
"Danny Buck, if I'm on that jury, I'm voting to acquit!" A movie in the Christopher Guest model of interviewing townspeople, Bernie is a standout. Fall down funny.
This one is a MUST SEE for everyone. I found it in a video store in Nebraska 2 years ago while working on an oil project. This movie is unbelievable but is a true story. EVERYONE who acted and made a performance of any kind being both the actors and residents of the town of Carthage, Texas need to be both acknowledged and commended for their performance. The storyline used a documentary style to deliver a good part of the dialog which was true genius in my opinion. I must commend Jack Black as I never gave him much credit in the talent department and he completely validated himself to me and deserves an academy award for his performance!
However, in Bernie, Jack manages to keep his lid on and turn in an understated and sympathetic performance. His portrayal of the real-life, good-hearted Carthage mortitician-turned-murderer is absolutely brilliant. He is completely believable, and as a result, makes brings Bernie Tiede to life for those of us non-Carthage, Texas dwellers. Everyone in the movie played it straight, letting the laughs come from the dialog and the whole preposterous situation. It was just genius to use real Carthage citizens as a Greek chorus, moving the story along with the remarks, obvervations and memories. Matthew McConaughey does a great job too.
The one casting I didn't too much care for was that of Shirley MacLaine. Don't get me wrong; I normally love Shirley MacLaine, but she's been playing the old female curmudgeon role for all it's worth since Steel Magnolias. In fact, her take on her role of Marjorie in Bernie is just a one-dimensional reprise of Weezer.
Nevertheless, this is an excellent, unique movie about real events in a small Texas town. The events are so outlandish that this film would not have worked as fiction: the story is just too implausible.
Most of all, this showed me what an excellent artist Jack Black is. He is not the one-note like I thought he was. His performance was perfect: restrained, believable and completely sympathetic. He was actually nominated for an Academy Award for his portrayal of Bernie Tiede and I was sure rooting for him. I am now anxiously awaiting more great performances from Jack Black.
In the meantime, I have Bernie - quirky, unique, hilarious, poignant, full of memorable characters and based in fact.
"Bernie" is better than anything to which I might find a suitable comparison. Jack Black is ALL KINDS of talented. He sings with the clarity of a bell and the warmth of a mother's hug. He is simply trans-formative, hitting every mark to portray Mr. Bernie Tiede in elegant truth.
Shirley McClain is a personal favorite of mine so I was delighted (to say the least) that she played Mrs. Margorie Nugent. I am sure no one could have done it better.
The fact that this is a true story, and the wonderful interviews with the townspeople, made this film truly interesting for me. I find myself continuing to care about all of these individuals.
I also wonder about underlying moral questions raised in movies going back to Logan's Run and beyond... is it ok to kill someone if most of the people involved/infected by the murder believe it is right?
I recall reading an article about an old Texas law that provided a legal defense if the murder victim "needed killing." In other words, the general consensus was that anybody who was acting like a complete ass could be legally murdered. It can't be on the books anymore but what might life look like if it were?
Although it won't answer that question, this movie is funny, interesting, thought provoking, and a little bit Black-magical. I recommend it.
