I recently watched the film Bernie, which is based on a true story that took place in East Texas back in 1996. For some reason my expectations were fairly low, or maybe non-existent is more apt. Lo and behold it was a pretty great movie, in large part due to the performances of the chatterbox townsfolk. If memory serves (and I'm apparently too lazy to look this up AS I TYPE ON A COMPUTER WITH INTERNET) many players were not actors, but actual citizens of the town. This scene is one of my favorites. And if you live, or have ever lived in Texas, you'll know why.
