The Big Lebowski

1998
Comedy, Crime
1h 57m
When "The Dude" Lebowski is mistaken for a millionaire Lebowski, two thugs urinate on his rug to coerce him into paying a debt he knows nothing about. While attempting to gain recompense for the ruined rug from his wealthy counterpart, he accepts a one-time job with high pay-off. He enlists the help of his bowling buddy, Walter, a gun-toting Jewish-convert with anger issues. Deception leads to more trouble, and it soon seems that everyone from porn empire tycoons to nihilists want something from The Dude. (imdb)

Black comedy with an intricate noir style plot following Dude's deliciously pointless quest for woven yarn. There's a dynamic, varied soundtrack and gorgeously trashy dream sequences, but it's the characters and diaglogue that sparkle. The breadth of witty exchanges and curious topics heighten each of the eclectic characters appeal, foremost the wryly mellow Dude and bombastically militant Walter. Did I mention it's fucking hilarious? Infinite joy from infinite viewings. Abide.

I may be overrating this, but I loved every second of The Big Lebowski. A premise that seems utterly stupid to some will probably be ingenious to others. I, for one, loved the story. It had me laughing out loud for 2 hours and Jeff Bridges does as awesome as usual while John Goodman made this my favorite role from him. Love the Coen brothers and I love this. You will either love or hate this. I also loved the music. Good filmmaking all around and one of the best comedies maybe ever. Dude abides.

How many movies have their very own festivals? This film contains some of the greatest characters and quotes in movie history. It's almost Impossible to talk about this movie with other fans without it turning into a quote-a-thon. There is a lot of 'you either get it or you don't' concerning this movie and to those who don't I would suggest waiting a little while and watching it a second time before giving up on it completely. I think I have converted at least 10 people on second viewings.

Perfectly bizarre. The characters are all 'out there', but written and played so well that each seems deep and fully realized. The plot gets convoluted, as does any noir mystery, but the movie is all about the characters and their interplay, the plot is just an excuse to bring them together. What makes it great is how the intricacies of the plot become clearer with repeat viewings: true to its Chandler structure, all the clues are there -- the first-time viewer is just too confused to spot them.

A fine historical film, set back in the early nineties. This is the movie that made me realise that the Coens are constructing, through their body of work, a special Coenesque counter-history of 20th-century America (update: now includes 19th-century America), with each film set in a different historical period. Lebowski is the role that Bridges was born to play, and a perfect expression of a certain type of human being. My recollection is that critics and audiences initially didn't like it.
