“Itu0026#39;s actually kind of hard to describe this movie (and whatu0026#39;s so great about it) to people who donu0026#39;t already know it and love it; as with many cult films, The Big Lebowski will either speak to you (in which case you will become a fervent follower of His Dudeness and abide by his code for the rest of your life) or, if it doesnu0026#39;t, the film will either leave you completely indifferent or youu0026#39;ll even downright hate it.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eI believe itu0026#39;s a very funny film and Iu0026#39;m sure it can be rightfully called a comedy, but donu0026#39;t expect punchlines, gags, jokes or slapstick – itu0026#39;s not that kind of comedy. If you want to enjoy this film, you have to meet Jeffery u0026quot;The Dudeu0026quot; Lebowski on his terms, hang out with him and his bowling buddies and follow them at a their (perhaps somewhat leisurely) pace through this weird and unbelievable tale about nihilism, theft (of a car and, more importantly: a Creedence Clearwater Revival tape), kidnapping, abstract art, porn and – of course – bowling. u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe story is actually kind of simple. You see, some no-good German nihilists urinated on The Dudeu0026#39;s rug – and this kind of aggression just wonu0026#39;t stand against The Dude. With the help of his bowling buddies, he will do everything in his power to get someone to pay for his rug – or possibly get a new one (because that rug really tied the room together). So he embarks on this worthy quest during which he will encounter many wondrous things and fascinating people (even Jesus – who is NOT the messiah but a very naughty man).u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eWith Jeff Bridges in the leading role, the Coen brothers have found the perfect actor to incorporate one of the most iconic characters that has ever been created. But itu0026#39;s not just The Dude that makes this a winner; the whole film is such an inspired folly and simply inventive filmmaking at its finest (the hilarious dream sequence alone is worth the price of admission). The supporting cast is outstanding (J.Turturro, J.Goodman and S.Buscemi among many others), the song choices are perfect and the dialog is the funniest, most quotable in any comedy Iu0026#39;ve ever seen. This – for me – is without a doubt the film with the highest rewatchability factor of all time. 10 stars out of 10.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eFavorite Films: Masterpieces: Low-Budget and B-movies:”
