The Big Lebowski (1998) Movie Review

The Big Lebowski (1998) - Movie Review - Quick Movie Reviews by Haris

Another Coen Brothers classic!

When “The Dude” Lebowski is mistaken for a millionaire Lebowski, two thugs pee on his carpet to convince him into paying a debt he knows nothing about. While attempting to gain some sort of return for the ruined carpet from the other Lebowski, he accepts a job involving a lot of money. He is helped by his bowling buddy, Walter, a gun-waving Jewish-convert with anger issues. Deception leads to trouble, and it soon seems that everyone from porn empire tycoons to nihilists want something from The Dude.

I hear about this movie almost on a daily basis, so, I was going to give in to the hype eventually and watch it. Was it worth my time? Yes! Is it worth your time? Yes! Will I watch it again? Yes! This is a movie where you get to spend a lot of time with its two main characters. The Dude and Walter. This is a really good, buddy, chill out movie. This movie is not for kids, though. Nope. There’s 376 uses of profanity. Still only half the profanity than the Wolf of Wall Street. There is some nudity in this movie as well but nothing too extreme. I really enjoyed this movie. I also love the music in this movie. And also the bowling scenes. So! Many! Bowling! Scenes! My favorite after-cinema activity 😃

This movie is a little slow at times, and at times it’s really weird, leaves you wondering what you’re even watching, but, what saves this movie for me is Jeff Bridges & John Goodman’s comedic chemistry, and I appreciate that they were together on screen for so long! 8/10*
