It’s officially a cult classic. It has humour, philosophy and a great cast. It also has the ‘Dude’ Lebowski and his messed-up existence. The Big Lebowski was released in 1998 and directed by the Coen brothers, Joel and Ethan. It follows the exploits of the Dude, a slacker in California who gets caught up in a case of mistaken identity.
As the Dude, played by Jeff Bridges, seeks to be reimbursed for a damaged carpet, he becomes embroiled in a kidnap, conflict with some German nihilists, and a general break-down of all good reason. It makes for a very wacky but entertaining movie. It also has a great soundtrack.
Here are some of the highlights from The Big Lebowski. Watch this and you will at least have a basic understanding of what avid fans (and there are many) are talking about when discussing the Dude and Donny. The link below is for the sensational Kenny Rogers track, I just dropped in.
