Not As Big As I Thought It Would Be

A follow up to the successful Cohen Brothers' film 'Fargo', this Jeff Bridges-centric comic/mystery seemed to hold so much promise. While you don't often see movies tied to bowling, Joel and Ethan do their best to mine this backdrop for additional laughs and absurdity. Their main character (Bridges) is presented as The Dude - a poster boy for slackers the world over. Dressed as he is either getting ready for bed (or just got out), The Dude trudges his way through this film with as little energy or evidence of thought as possible. Unwittingly caught up in a web of mistaken identity, con artists, and well intentioned friends, we watch as The Dude slowly begins to shrug off his perpetual stupor and try and take control of things that are raising havoc with his 'chill' existence. John Goodma...

The dude abides.

The Big Lebowski is one of my favorite comedy films of all time, because it has such awkward situational humor. Rarely does it get physical or serious. It's just as simple as Walter telling Donnie to shut up.
The comedic acting is fantastic, from all three leads Dude, Walter and Donnie (I call them the Good, the Bad and the Ugly).
Their characters are straight-up losers, with great personalities. There are so many little hidden comedic messages and goofs, such as the Dude's addiction to White Russians, Walter's hilarious anger outbursts and Donnie's overlooked obvious talent for bowling (He almost always hits a strike).
Think about it. When was the last time dream sequences worked in a movie? The Big Lebowski. That's when. The Coens' direction is as pleasing to the eyes as it embodies ...

The rug really tied the room together!

Jeff Bridges plays The Dude a seriously stoned bowler who suddenly finds himself embroiled in a world of kidnapping, extortion and violence after a group of Germans break into his house, mistake him for a millionaire, and soil his carpet. Realizing that they have kicked the proverbial 'crap' out of the wrong guy, they leave but all the dude wants is his rug back.

John Goodman gives an unforgettable performance as The Dude's (gun-) crazy friend and 'Nam' veteran with a chip on his shoulder. Julianne Moore is fantastic as the artist/feminist millionaire and Steve Buscemi filled the part of poor old Donny. JohnTurturro gives an outstanding interpretation of "Jesus," the perverted bowler which is worth the price of the DVD on its own.

Put on your Baja shirt, frayed boxer shorts, be...
