A frantic mish-mash of comedy, mystery, and cinematic trickery that, while it can be overwhelming at first glance, is one of the most unique and entertaining films in a generation.

I could tell you how much I love this movie but that's just, like, my opinion, man.

The comedy largely centers itself on Bridges, whose blissfully nonplussed reaction shots always provide a grounding effect for the rest of the movie.

For those of you who forgot how good Bridges was in The Fisher King, here is a reminder. As the gung-ho Nam veteran, Goodman's tenacious, tightly coiled demeanor is smartly explosive and very funny.

The Big Lebowski (1998) is a dark, idiosyncratic and quirky comedy/crime caper-thriller involving an intriguing complex case of mistaken identity, deception, double-crosses, and a mysterious kidnapping. It came from the inventive, cultish...

Already a pessimistic take on the American Dream and the ideal of the self-made man, the model of the film-noir detective is ridiculed in The Big Lebowski.

One of a kind.

If one were to examine the entire cinematic resume of the Coen Brothers, The Big Lebowskiwould assuredly rest within the top five spots.

I'll just say this: The Big Lebowksi is an excellent movie - and damn funny.

A return to form... where large men scream very loudly and jokes are pounded into the ground with vigor and brio. Goodman's Walter is a bullet-headed, barely contained titan of rage, running on the fumes of cracked beliefs and fierce garble-gabble.

Hilarious, well-written, and well-performed by both Bridges and Goodman, The Big Lebowski blows other more recent slacker comedies out the water and proves that Bridges can do any role.

It's like, you know, pretty groovy, man.

On one hand, it has many layers, but on the other hand, it's just about a dude who wants his rug back.

A very funny and twisted comedy...
