Second time around, "Bernie" proved to be just as funny, in fact, I may have appreciated its cleverness -- and Jack Black's fabulous performance (as a dedicated Funeral Director) even more this time I saw it. I hope he, or the film itself gets some kind of award! Directed by Robert Linklater co-starring Shirley MacLaine and Matthew McConaughey (playing the Assistant DA) with the hilarious Black -- whose very walk seen from the rear is enough to make you giggle, the plot is amazingly based on real people and real events in the small town of Carthage Texas. It is quirky, black humor at its best. My kind of entertainment!
