Bernie

(2012)

Assistant funeral director Bernie Tiede was one of the town's most beloved residents. He taught Sunday school, sang in the church choir and was always willing to lend a helping hand. Everyone loved and appreciated him, so it came as no surprise when he befriended Marjorie Nugent, an affluent widow who was as well known for her sour attitude as her fortune. He frequently traveled with Marjorie and even managed her banking affairs. She became fully dependant on Bernie and his generosity, and he struggled to meet her increasing demands. He continued to handle her affairs, and the townspeople went months without seeing her. They were shocked when it was reported that she had been dead for some time, and Bernie was being charged with the murder.

EXCLUSIVE: Jack Black and Shirley MacLaine Talk ‘Bernie’

School of Rock director Richard Linklater reteams with Jack Black for the true-crime comedy Bernie, which follows a small Texas town's beloved mortician accused of killing off a well-to-do widow played by Shirley MacLaine. Paulington James Christensen III recently caught up with the odd pairing of Jack Black and Shirley MacLaine to discuss the movie, channeling Tupac Shakur, and the fact that this is neither a sequel nor prequel to Weekend at Bernie's. Watch as Shirley MacLaine answers incoming phone calls from the dead!

Bernie was released April 27th, 2012.
