I am not a Jack Black fan but this movie changed my mind. There has been so much bad news in the world lately that seeing a movie about a murdering mortician was not high on my list. Lo and behold and Praise the Lord, the movie LIFTED my spirits, say “amen”! Tuesday night is seniors’ night and there were plenty on board to appreciate this movie as well. Lots of laughter out loud and not a texting screen in sight.
This movie seemed straight forward from the start but there are twists that I didn’t foresee. It reminded me of Waiting For Guffman and would have been equally funny had Will Ferrell been Bernie but as I said, Jack Black did an awesome job. A great documentary of a good boy gone bad … or did he? And the ending that was totally expected … well, no spoiler here.
The movie is at the Lyric for two more nights and I highly recommend it.
