The Big Lebowski

Comedy, Crime Rated: R 117 min


Jeff “The Dude” Lebowski, mistaken for a millionaire of the same name, seeks restitution for his ruined rug and enlists his bowling buddies to help get it. The oft-quoted Coen brothers classic is even more sublime with His Dudeness (Jeff Bridges), white Russian in hand, in full-screen, fumbling splendor. The sublime supporting cast at their wackiest includes John Goodman, Julianne Moore and John Turturro.

“It takes a largely undocumented chunk of reality and twists it into a surreal comic film noir wonderland, full of delightfully bent characters and darkly hilarious set-pieces, gasser performances, great lines and right-on portraiture.” — Michael Wilmington, The Chicago Tribune
“There is always something fascinating about following the Coens’ rapt gaze as they peer into the American nut bowl.” — Richard Schickel, TIME Magazine
