Jack Black plays an affable assistant mortician in this black comedy. Jack Black does a fine job in the lead role, and Shirley MacLaine is very understated. I very much enjoyed the faux documentary style of the film. The usage of actual townspeople was very effective, and I often wondered who was and who wasn't an actor. That's pretty much all I have to say.
I know! No rants, no smarmy remarks.
Don't worry, it won't last.
