2. Also, one of my favorite movies, and that from a guy who doesn't like comedies. But this is not about a few teenagers with a hardon, or Jim Carry thinking he is God...and such. After you have seen it even a couple of times (yes I admit it!) you still have to laugh at some of the scenes. The part when his investigation leads The Dude to the mansion of Jacky Treehorn, featuring the "Gutterballs" dream sequence, talking to the chief of the police station in Malibu ("sorry I wasn't listening"), and ending by being kicked out of the cab by the driver because he hates "the fucking Eagles man" is absolutely hilarious.
Dude (a.k.a. the Big Lebowski): You know, this is a very complicated case, Maude. Lotta ins, lotta outs. You know, fortunately, I'm adhering to a pretty strict, drug regiment to keep my mind, ... limber.
Ever feel down? Put this movie in your DVD player and you can't help but feel the good vibe of The Dude and his simplistic look at life. How life should be. Very funny from beginning to end. Walter Sobchak and Donnie are great as well. Especially when Walter and the Dude say goodbye to Donnie, it just makes me crack up every time. A must see, man..ya know?
The Big Lebowski, man, ya know?
The Dude: Walter, ya know, it's Smokey, so his toe slipped over the line a little, big deal. It's just a game, man. Walter Sobchak: Dude, this is a league game, this determines who enters the next round robin. Am I wrong? Am I wrong?
Smokey: Yeah, but I wasn't over. Gimme the marker Dude, I'm marking it 8.
Walter Sobchak: pulls out a gun Smokey, my friend, you are entering a world of pain.
The Dude: Walter...
Walter Sobchak: You mark that frame an 8, and you're entering a world of pain.
Smokey: I'm not...
Walter Sobchak: A world of pain.
Smokey: Dude, he's your partner...
Walter Sobchak: shouting Has the whole world gone crazy? Am I the only one around here who gives a shit about the rules? Mark it zero!
The Dude: They're calling the cops, put the piece away.
Walter Sobchak: Mark it zero!
points gun in Smokey's face
Walter Sobchak: shouting You think I'm fucking around here? Mark it zero!
Smokey: All right, it's fucking zero. Are you happy, you crazy fuck?
Walter Sobchak: ...It's a league game, Smokey.
An eccentric Cohen Brothers film which has taken on a life of its own as a post-release cult classic film; still growing in popularity with each passing year.
Explanations or reviews are useless. "The Big Lebowski" must be viewed and experienced. Its offbeat energy and loose plot are an acquired taste. But the performances by the actors are outstanding. To fully grasp "The Big Lebowski" and its main character, The Dude, several viewings of this film are recommended
My crazy friendLester said "The Big Lebowski" is the best movie he has ever seen. (I told him, "You're out of your element ... and you're about to enter a world of pain.")
An awesome comedy by the famed Coen Brothers.
Plot: We follow The Dude (Jeff Bridges) and his friend Walter (John Goodman) on their mission to resque the kidnapped wife of the wealthy, disabled Mr. Lebowski.
In his struggle The Dude encounters Carpterpisser, Nihilists, Vaginal artists and a variety of other weird and exotic characters.
The greatest movie in history, made by the brilliant Coen Brothers. Anyone who has not seen this movie is utterly worthless. Anyone who has seen it and disliked it should be ripped off the face of the Earth. In the film, Jeff Bridges plays Jeff "The Dude" Lebowski, whose rug is peed on. Somehow, this gets him involved in a hostage situation, and an overly complex world of corruption and lies. Hilarity ensues.
