The Big Lebowski
Comedy • R • 1998 • 1 hr 57 min
Not as good as everyone says but it's a solid and pretty funny movie and the shabbas joke always got a laugh a good pick for movie night
Like any good Zen movie it doesn’t actually go anywhere; it’s content to simply be. The Big Lebowski abides—don’t try to make sense of it.
The Coen Brothers said “let’s take film noir classic The Big Sleep, only it’s about a carpet” and made one of the best comedies ever
Take all the tropes of a classic noir film and turn them upside down—the result is a farce about one bum’s search for his cherished rug.
I didn't get it as much when I first watched it but it gets better and better the more you watch it.
Very well written with a lot of jokes that can only be picked up on through re-watches. Very similar to comedic style to Napoleon Dynamite.
Bridges and John Goodman will have you laughing every scene, a top 5 all time comedy featuring The Dude.
One of the best things eyes have ever witnessed
