CULT CLASSICS ~ The Big Lebowski
R | 117 min | Comedy, Crime
There are two men named Jeffrey Lebowski. One is a lazy, pot smoking, White Russian drinking, hippie who goes by "The Dude" (Jeff Bridges). The other is a self-made, handicapped, multimillionaire war veteran who lives in a huge mansion with a full time assistant. Their paths cross when the millionaire's trophy wife owes money to a known pornographer. The thugs hired by this man confront The Dude because he has the same name. They urinate on his rug to coerce him into paying a debt he knows nothing about. The Dude, wanting payback for his now destroyed rug, seeks out the millionaire Lebowski. What follows takes The Dude and his bowling buddies Walter (John Goodman) and Donnie (Steve Buscemi) on a weird tale of intrigue, kidnapping, pornography, nihilists, and more White Russians. Directed by Ethan and Joel Coen.
