What happens when the nicest man in town strikes a friendship with the most hated woman in the community? The hilarious Jack Black stars as Bernie, a mortician in small Texas town who befriends a rich widow, Marjorie Nugent, played by the legendary Shirley MacLaine. After Nugent's sudden disappearance, no one in town misses her absence, until the local district attorney (Matthew McConaughey) begins investigating Bernie and Nugent's questionable liaison. In keeping with tradition, this wacky comedy is based on a true story!
