  1. Good job. I’m no Jack Black fan, but I think Bernie is an absolute hoot. I laugh at the smallest things in that movie. It’s quirky beyond measure but in a very good way.


    • I quite enjoy Black in this movie. I get where people get turned off by him but I’m a fan of him, more often than not. But he definitely does something different here.


    • This one you won’t want to miss my friend. Jack Black is quite outstanding as Bernie. The story is completely whack but it’s very entertaining. Proves once again how diverse of a filmmaker Mr. Linklater is.
