All-star cast very disjointed film. Jeff Bridges just plays Jeff Bridges. Clever one-liners now and then, but lots of nonsense repetitive dialogue. Glad I watched it, but it's very overrated.

The Wikipedia page for this film sums it up pretty well with the quote from Joel Coen: "characters trying to unravel a mystery, as well as having a hopelessly complex plot that's ultimately unimportant." It has a bizarre cast of quotable characters and, in keeping with Samuel Clemens' definition of a classic, it is worth seeing at least once.

This movie has everything- German nihilists, a Vietnam veteran bowler with a short fuse, White Russian cocktails, fake kidnapping, and a mistaken identity.

Could not even keep my attention slightly. After all the hype and all the friends shouting "YOU'VE NEVER SEEN IT?!?!" It was all I could do just to get through it so I can say I've seen it.

I don't understand the attraction to this film. It has a bit of a cult following but it didn't keep my attention. But I recommend viewing it at least once because you are bound to meet someone in your life time who enjoyed it. A conversation piece. Google "Big Lebowski trivia" & find the answers from the film to make the experience more entertaining if needed.

A crazy but well done movie with excellent dialogue and situations that will make your head spin. Definitely worth the watch.

My favorite movie of all time. I'm not usually the type of person who likes to watch movies over and over again, but this one is different. I never grow tired of the brilliant hilarity.

Thanks to alert on profanity, saved me trouble of ordering it when I wouldn't have watched it anyway.

This movie never gets old. I think this was the second DVD I ever purchased, and I remember begging my friends to give it a chance trying to show it off. Of course, once they saw it they loved it. Everyone does. The comedy. The weirdness. The mystery. The catch phrases. And of course, the dude.

The Dude: Let me explain something to you. Um, I am not "Mr. Lebowski". You're Mr. Lebowski. I'm the Dude. So that's what you call me. You know, that or, uh, His Dudeness, or uh, Duder, or El Duderino if you're not into the whole brevity thing.

The Big Lebowski: "Did I urinate on your rug?" The Dude: "You mean, did you personally come and pee on my rug?" The Big Lebowski: "Hello? Do you speak English sir? Parla usted Inglese? I'll ask you again. Did I urinate on your rug?" The Dude: "No, like I said - 'Woo' peed on my rug." The Big Lebowski: "I just want to understand this, sir. Every time a rug is micturated upon in this fair city, I have to compensate the person?" The Dude: "C'mon... man! I'm not tryin' to scam anybody here, uh, y'know, I'm, I'm just uh-" The Big Lebowski: "You're just looking for a handout like every other - Are you employed, Mr. Lebowski?" The Dude: "Wait. Wait. Let me, let me explain something to you. Um, I am not 'Mr. Lebowski'. You're 'Mr. Lebowski'. I'm 'The Dude'. So that's what you call me... You know, uh, that, or uh, 'His Dudeness', or uh, 'Duder', or 'El Duderino', if you're not into the whole brevity thing, uh..."

The Dude: "Is this a... what day is this?" The Big Lebowski: "Well, I do work sir. So if you don't mind..." The Dude: "I DO mind... uh, the Dude minds! This will not stand, ya know, this aggression will not stand, man..."

The Big Lebowski: "...I cannot solve your problem, sir. Only you can." The Dude: "Ah, f*ck it." The Big Lebowski: "Oh, f*ck it. Yes! That's your answer! That's your answer to everything! Tattoo it on your forehead! Your revolution is over, Mr. Lebowski! Condolences! The bums lost! My advice to you is to do what your parents did! Get a job, sir! The bums will always lose! (The Dude walks out and shuts the door) Do you hear me, Lebowski? The bums will always lose!" Brandt: "How was your meeting, Mr. Lebowski?" The Dude: Okay! The old man told me to take any rug in the house."
