This video draws parallels between The Big Lebowski and Alice in Wonderland. In fact, the guy in it goes as far to say that The Big Lebowski is actually a retelling of Alice and Wonderland. He also makes a slew of pop culture references.
What do you think? Is The Big Lebowski a retelling of Alice in Wonderland, or is it a story of it's own? Let me know what you think.

going to apologize for not watching your video in advance.
no. i absolutely do not think lebowski is a retelling.
whatever connections that video makes are done by serious leaps.

ive seen that movie dozens of times and i have seen nothing in it that makes me think alice in wonderland

but its a shame that jeff bridges has gotten a lot more surly and downcast lately. he really needs another comedic role to just let it all hang out.

No worries Man, I am much more a peaceful person since embracing a idgaf attitude about life... don't sweat the small stuff... That being said, there was a time I'd have Waltered up and been all "No! No Way, Man... These atrocities will not stand!"...

A Dudeist will always turn the other cheek as long as it's to the left, and let it pass along.

I didn't see any either but I really wasn't looking for them. The video made me chuckle at some of the comparisons though.

I'm very surprised that a certain somebody hasn't chimed in on the subject. I recall reading that nobody at all can stump him on The Big Lewboski trivia. In fact, he's said many have tried and many have cried.
I'm talking about SkepticOverlord. So, what's you're opinion, man?

He's one of the owners of the site. His avatar is of Gene Wilder and Peter Boyle from Young Frankenstein.
I'd actually love to see that. I'd sit back with come munchies just to watch.

if you can get ahold of him do it.
maybe he is not busy tonight?
either way, we can set up a time and one of us can start a thread and bang it out.
i think it would be fun..
no hard feelings if i get spanked.

im confident though.

Hey SM!!!

I also noticed you are a big movie buff. Have you ever seen Cook County?

Aston Mount stars in it, it is a fantastic movie that is so disturbing on so many levels.

I love movies. I've never heard of Aston Mount but probably saw him in a movie and never realized it. I'll check Cook County out. It sounds good. Thanks!
