After the tight plotting and quirky intensity of Fargo, this casually amusing follow-up from the prolifically inventive Coen (Ethan and Joel) brothers seems like a bit of a lark, and the result was a box-office disappointment. The good news is, The Big Lebowski is every bit a Coen movie, and its lazy plot is part of its laidback charm. After all, how many movies can claim as their hero a pot-bellied, pot-smoking loser named Jeff "The Dude" Lebowski (Jeff Bridges) who spends most of his time bowling and getting stoned? And where else could you find a hairnetted Latino bowler named Jesus (John Turturro) who sports dazzling purple footgear, or an erotic artist (Julianne Moore) whose creativity consists of covering her naked body in paint, flying through the air in a leather harness, and splatting herself against a giant canvas? Who else but the Coens would think of showing you a camera view from inside the holes of a bowling ball, or an elaborate Busby Berkely-styled musical dream sequence involving a Viking goddess and giant bowling pins? The plot--which finds Lebowski involved in a kidnapping scheme after he's mistaken for a rich guy with the same name--is almost beside the point. What counts here is a steady cascade of hilarious dialogue, great work from Coen regulars John Goodman and Steve Buscemi, and the kind of cinematic ingenuity that puts the Coens in a class all their own. Be sure to watch with snacks in hand, because The Big Lebowski might give you a giddy case of the munchies.

The Coen brothers have done it again. Mixing in Leninist philosophy, mistaken identity, crazy characters, a kidnapping plot, and a deep love of bowling, they have unleashed upon an unsuspecting world the many glories of The Big LebowskiI. Jeff Bridges plays Jeff Lebowski, known as the Dude, a laid-back, easygoing burnout who happens to have the same name as a millionaire whose wife owes a lot of dangerous people a whole bunch of money--resulting in the Dude having his rug soiled, sending him spiraling into the Los Angeles underworld. The film is beautiful to look at, especially the scenes in the bowling alley, which feature a vast array of bizarre characters including Steve Buscemi, John Turturro, Sam Elliott, and the movie-stealing, riotously funny John Goodman as the Dude's crazy best buddy. As usual in Coen brothers films (Barton Fink, Raising Arizona), the dialogue is hysterically warped; the plot is confusing, complicated, and kinetic; the soundtrack is virtually another character; and the acting is weirdly stellar. The Big LebowskiI is yet another thoroughly entertaining foray into the strange and fascinating world ruled by Joel and Ethan Coen.

Yeah, well, you know, that's just, like, your opinion, man. ....

a must see film - i just watched this for about the 8th time the other night...

I've found that people either Love, or Hate this film.. Personally I cant see why no one would enjoy this masterpiece..

Thug: Where's the money, Lebowski? Where's the ****ing money, shithead?
The Dude: It's uh... uh... it's down there somewhere, let me take another look.
:-D

Johnson ?

Love it :thumbsup:

Bunny Lebowski: Blow on them.
The Dude: You want me to blow on your toes?
Bunny Lebowski: I can't blow that far.
The Dude: [looks at man lazing in the pool] Are you sure he won't mind?
Bunny Lebowski: Uli doesn't care about anything. He's a Nihilist.
The Dude: Ah, that must be exhausting.

Blond Treehorn Thug: [holding up a bowling ball] What the **** is this?
The Dude: Obviously you're not a golfer.

Currently playing the OST on Audiosurf.

'Just Dropped In' is particularly good.

Walter Sobchak: “You want a toe? I can get you a toe, believe me. There are ways, Dude. You don’t wanna know about it, believe me.”

The Dude: “Yeah, but Walter…”

Walter Sobchak: “Hell, I can get you a toe by 3 o’clock this afternoon… with nail polish. These ****ing amateurs…”

you mean beyond pacifism? I dabbled in pacifism dude, not in Nam of course

DUDE
I don't see any connection to Vietnam,
Walter.

WALTER
Well, there isn't a literal
connection, Dude.

DUDE
Walter, face it, there isn't any
connection. It's your roll.

Better find. Shame people just vote hot because they like the film rather … Better find. Shame people just vote hot because they like the film rather than it being a good deal.



No, dont forget not everyone has a HD DVD player, I do and have bought it in HD DVD, those of us that have voted hot know it is a good deal, because we like the film and its a good price for standard dvd.

If someone would have actually posted the £2.99 deal at HMV for Big Lebowski on HD DVD it would not have got heat due to the amount of times £2.99 deals on HD DVD have been published including Big Lebowski.

This IS a POSTED DEAL on the STANDARD DVD edition.

So there is no "just" to it....:x

ps there is no "rather" to it either
pps there is no "shame" either
ppps if the HD DVD deal had been posted, it would have been shot down by Sony fanboys.

Totally agree cicobuff, the HD DVD would be voted cold.

FishAndChronic, how come you haven't posted any deals yourself yet ???

Guys, guys, guys.....

No, I think they realise yours was a joke. I did. However, not all did.

Take "FishAndChronic"'s post - "Better find. Shame people just vote hot because they like the film rather than it being a good deal." for example.

I think it was this post they were responding to, rather than yours:thumbsup:

Absolutely, the tone of Fishandchronics post is what narked me far more than anything you said grex9101.

If you own a HD DVD player then its good to see comments like the HD version is available for 2.99 here ... grex9101 :thumbsup:
But FishAndChronics telling people to be ashamed for posting this hot becuase the HD DVD is cheaper....rubbish :pirate:

I'd give you rep for reminding me to watch this film again Andy but it seems I no longer can :x

Precisely, and as stated, if the HD DVD version would have been posted, it would have been comments like "everyone knows that its available for 2.99 at HMV on HD DVD, its a known fact there has been a regular list including Lebowski" or "cold, HD DVD is a dead format, and only good for people that like obsolete technnology" from Sony fanboys.

I am a proud owner of this region 1 DVD as well as HD DVD, and I wouldnt part with either! Anyone that hasnt bought it, 3.87 on DVD is a steal, for the lucky few that have a HD DVD player its a great price at HMV at 2.99 (and not yet available on Blu-ray)
