This was a fun, funny, well-acted film that you should see because all the main actors are clearly having so much fun. But my favorite part was the way the people in the town told the story of poor Bernie and that horrid Marjorie Nugent. After the movie is done, you can watch the great DVD extras of the locals telling town stories and how Richard Linklater was interested in the story very early on.
Also! Jack Black in a scene from my very favorite stage musical!
