Richard Linklater co-wrote and directed this comedic crime drama, starring Jack Black, Shirley MacLaine and Matthew McConaughey. In a tiny Texas town, the assistant funeral director, Bernie Tiede (Black), was the perfect citizen and everyone loved him. It was not surprising when he befriended Marjorie Nugent (MacLaine), an affluent widow well known for her sour disposition. Bernie traveled with her and managed her affairs and Marjorie became fully dependent on him and his generosity. The townspeople went months without seeing Marjorie, but Bernie was still handling her affairs…… hmmm!
