It’s good knowin’ he’s out there. The Dude. Takin’ ‘er easy for all us sinners.
Jeffrey "The Dude" Lebowski, a Los Angeles slacker who only wants to bowl and drink White Russians, is mistaken for another Jeffrey Lebowski, a wheelchair-bound millionaire, and finds himself dragged into a strange series of events involving nihilists, adult film producers, ferrets, errant toes, and large sums of money.

My opinion : What a peculiar film “The Big Lebowski” is. Bolstered by strong performances from veteran level actors, written/directed by the near legends The Coen Brothers. This comedy/drama on a slacking aimless individual whose name gets him mixed up in a progressively perplexing string of events that all follow a correlation to each other. This added with bowling and a lot of “dude talking” basically sums up the overall premise, which despite being highly unpredictable ends up walking as aimlessly as its titular protagonist, as we are left as lost as we are blown away by the sheer mania that “The Big Lebowski” is, which despite is yet a film plentiful of catchy quotes, humorous moments and the unforgettable “Jesus” character. This isn’t the brothers’s best film and by far, but it definitely isn’t terrible, nor is it terrific. 72/100
