Good fun, dark comedy. One character in it who is amusing is The Stranger, played by sam Elliot

I had a roommate in college who perhaps killed the movie for me (hes one of those hipster movie quoter types). But I still enjoyed the movie a lot and find myself liking it better every watch. Very funny and creative comedy.

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...

"The Big Lebowski" by Yojimbo

A bowling obsessed waster becomes embroiled in a plot to kidnap a big shot's trophy wife when a Chinaman pisses on a rug that REALLY holds the room together. Probably the Coen brothers' best loved effort to date, The Big Lebowski is far more a straight up comedy than most that's a laugh out loud funny pastiche with the concept of a kahlua swilling, clueless deadbeat inhabiting the world of Film Noir. Some aspects of it have dated a little; Julianne Moore's pretentious feminist is a little irritating and the broad comedy of the fetishwear clad German nihilists has not stood the test of time so well, but this film is all about the partnership of an ever brilliant Jeff Bridges and John Goodman's terminally uptight, loud mouthed Vietnam vet and they are hilarious. It's far more about laughs t...
