Jack Black Talks “Bernie”

by | Aug 22nd, 2012 | 8:00AM | Filed under: DVD Reviews, Movies, Other Bits, Redbox Focus

Jack Black is one of the funniest actors in Hollywood, there’s no doubt about that. And in this hilarious video message he made for Redbox fans, you can tell he’s excited about his new movie Bernie, which he stars in alongside Matthew McConaughey and Shirley MacLaine.

What you might not know is that on top of being funny, Jack is also quite humble. So we’ll mention for him that his performance as the title character in Bernie was universally lauded by critics and audiences alike, and that the unbelievable story the film tells is actually TRUE.

You don’t want to miss this one!

    This movie was hilarious. The local town people helped make it an entertaining movie experience. Jack Black should be nominated for an academy award for his performance. He actually had me believing he was Bernie! I think Bernie is a must see!

    Jack is at his best in Bernie. I have enjoyed most of his movies in the past, but Bernie was made for him. The film is based on a true story and Jack makes a brilliant presentation. If you are ready to laugh, rent this one.

    good movie….a little slow, couldn’t figure out if it was going to be a full blown comedy or a parody on one.

    My kids love Jack Black. We took them to a dinner show in Florida and they offered Black Jack while you wait. My kids misunderstood and were so disappointed to find a card game where they thought one of their favorite actors was going to be.

    With my hubby named Bernie, this got my attention. I really enjoyed it and did not expect that ending. Jack was great as was Matthew McConaughey. I wonder, were those real townspeople or professional actors?

    Hi Mary,

    From what we heard from the studio, those are the real townspeople.

    My wife & l have fans of Jack Black & his movies. I’ve yet to see one that l didnt like or he wasn’t funny in! Having said that, l recommend “Bernie”. The town’s people are not actors but they’re real characters in their own right!

    Slow? Glaciers are fast compared to this. There were about 10 funny or interesting minutes in this whole move. Matthew McConaughey should be named ATT — he just phoned it in.

    The highlights — few and far between — involved the character who described Texas as “Five states, really,” and then proceeded to name 7.

    Jack Black should get a Best Actor Oscar for “Bernie”, no question. I hope he takes more serious roles in the future.

    Another comic who I think would make a great dramatic transition is: LOUIS CK

    Anyone from a small town can relate to this. Poor poor Bernie was the victim…What other comedian should try to do drama…is Bennie Hill.
