If you haven’t seen the trailer for ‘Bernie‘ yet you don’t know what your missing. Starring Jack Black, Shirley MacLaine, and Matthew McConaughey, the dramedy is shot mockumentary-style, with people from the town sharing their own opinions and perspectives on Bernie and whether or not he is guilty. Who is Bernie and what is he in trouble for? I’ll get to that next.
Bernie (Jack Black) is a local mortician that everyone loves and gets along with. People really had nothing bad to say about him. Bernie then becomes the best of friends with a wealthy widow (Shirley MacLaine) who everyone hates (because she’s awful) and somewhere along the way, he ends up essentially becoming her servant.
Being treated so poorly, there’s only so much he can take. “BANG,” he shoots her dead, but he then goes to great lengths to create the illusion that she’s still alive. Check out the trailer and be sure to watch it when it hits theatres this Friday, April 27. It looks hilarious and definitely worth checking it out.
