gotta give it up for lebowski....has to be one of the top movies of all time. at least in the comedy genre.

so what are some quotes you like? whos your favorite characters?

of course bridges did awesome and IS jeff lebowski..that said, john goodman stole the show. walter sobchek is one of the greatest characters ever.

some of my favorite parts are the more subtle laughs...

when lebowski says "so racially he's pretty cool" when he sees the pic of big lebowski next to his "children"
when the cop is bracing lebowski and hits him in the face with a coffee cup and lebowski calls him a fascist

lots of little tucked away laughs in this flick...

anytime peter stormare is in a flick is a bonus for me too...

woo pissing on the rug.

smokey about to enter a world of pain for stepping over the line.....it was a league game

maude and her doctor...he's a good man....and thorough.


i think my favorite part over all is when they go to lean on arthur digbey sellers kid.....the tv show writer thats in the iron lung. walter wants to brace the kid cause he found his homework....kids dad is dying right behind him and walter just keeps saying "is this your homework larry"...then tells him he is killing his father....and we all know what happens when you f a stranger in the a. walter gets a bat out and tunes up the vette that belongs to someone else...

if you have not seen this movie, please cancel your plans for the next couple hours. take a personal day from work. drop the kids off at the neighbors and watch this movie. its that important

how could i forget quintana?

You... You human Paraquat!

Apparently that was the only improvised line in the film.

Can't believe this movie bombed when it premiered.

Walter:

"This is not 'Nam, this is bowling. There are rules."

Dude:

"At least I'm housebroken."

hahaha...that was great too..

this aggression will not stand man...

it bombed but it is a major cult classic now. they have lebowski conventions....

i like when bunny is telling lebowski about ouhlie and how he is a nihilist and does not care about anything....lebowski says that must be exhausting....

the landlord guy that wants lebowski to come to his dance quintet...his 'cycle'.

you want a toe? i can get you a toe....there are ways dude...you dont want to know but there are ways

Is this your homework, Larry?

The quiet car ride home, eating In N Out burger.

"No, Walter, you're not wrong, you're just an a**hole."

And of course the late great Phillip S Hoffman. Nailed his role as the creepy "yes man." That uncomfortable laugh gets me everytime.

I'm a cardigan and bathrobe away from being "the Dude"...found a great wool cardigan, but it didn't fit

The homework scene, the cab ride, the Dude's car is even a character for Jeebus sake!
"Shomer Shabbas!!!"

Sam Elliott needs applause as well.

"Eight-year-olds, dude."

"Shut the $%#^ up Donny!"

"That rug really tied the room together, man!"

One of my all time favorite movies as well. =D

I have not seen the movie until this year, saw it had Jeff Bridges in it and it was to wet to do anything outside so I figured why not? LMAO through most of the movie.

I like the scene I believe at the beginning of the movie and the dude had replied to an insult with that line" Yeah well that's like, your opinion man". Or something along those lines.

And later on when Walter kept telling the other guy (Donnie? Jonny? cannot specifically recall) to STFU every time the guy said something.

Good movie, I might watch it again sometime.

I dunno why, but the scene with the German nihilists ordering lingonberry pancakes and "pigs un blanket" cracks me up.

Love the Coen brothers.
