The Big Lebowski

Nobody fucks with The Jesus!

Over the past week I’ve been, and I quote, “a lazy cunt.” But there’s someone lazier and I watched his story again last night.

Jeff Lebowski (played by Jeff Bridges) is The Dude. Quite possibly the laziest man in Los Angeles County “which would place him high in the runnin’ for laziest worldwide.”

A Venice, California slacker, The Dude’s daily routine involves smoking pot, drinking white Russians, and bowling.

When The Dude is mistaken by thugs for millionaire Jeffrey Lebowski, his laissez-faire lifestyle is turned upside down.

The Big Lebowski, a Coen Brothers comedy, is a film I revisit from time to time, especially for the following scenes:

A Busby Berkeley-inspired musical dream sequence.

Scattering the deceased’s ashes. (Can’t tell you anymore than that. You gotta see it yourself.)

Jesus Quintana (played by John Turturro) licking his bowling ball as seen here…

No time to watch the entire film? Then watch The Big Lebowski – Fucking Short Version...

The Dude abides.

And if you’re a huge fan of the film, attend the annual Lebowski Fest, an American bowling event featuring all things Lebowski.

What film do you find yourself revisiting?


  1. I fucking love this movie! I also like Napoleon Dynamite and Joe Dirt. Oh and I missed your nutty self. Geez I disappear for a week and everyone does the same. I'm such a trendsetter. (sigh) It's such a burden being fabulous.

  2. Triumph Of The Will. I'm sure the Pope's there somewhere.

    We don't get to watch that many films. They're all gathering dust as we catch up on telly programmes and blogs.

    Maybe when I retire.

  3. Fucking lovely!

    Now get you fucking arse over to my fucking fucked blog and make a fucking fucked fucking caption.

    Fucking Now!

    For fucks sake!

    Fucking word fucking veryifier!


  4. This is one of my all time favorites because:

    "Shomer fucking shabbos"
    'Walter, you're not even fucking Jewish.'


    'Ah hahahahaha! Wonderful woman. We're all, we're all very fond of her. Very free-spirited.'

    Also, the Dude and Walter - they ARE my brothers. Greg is the laziest man in the world and Gord 'became' Jewish.

  5. Y'know haven't seen the film. Loved "O Brother Where Art Thou" & "Fargo". Must check it out.

  6. Pru: Vive la fucking fab Prunella Jones.

    Geoff: The technology will have changed by the time you get ‘round to them.

    SID: The fuck are you talking about? Are you fucking pole-axed again? I’ll fucking get over to your fucking blog when I’m good and fucking ready. Fucking Irish floosie.

    Jacqeuline: “Saturday is shabbas. Jewish day of rest. Means I don't work, I don't drive a car, I don't fucking ride in a car, I don't handle money, I don't turn on the oven, and I sure as shit don't fucking roll!”

    Frobi: If you like Coen Bros, give The Big Lebowski a try.

  7. Night at the Roxbury, Dead Poet's Society, Bowling for Columbine...

    Hey, has Awaiting Acquiesced? That would be a shame...

  8. WW: Awaiting's blog is just undergoing some maintenance. Not to fear. She's ever here.

  9. Fabulous movie..when the landlord drops by for the rent and says, Dude it's Tursdayand the Dude says Right On...or the landlord's modern dance routine..or the Nihilists We believe in NUzzing! ..or John Goodman pretending to be Jewish..or saying Shut up Donny..or..forget it the whole thing is a scream.
    That carpet really pulled the room together....well they did it, they finally killed my f*cking car...

  10. HE: Shut the fuck up, Donny!

  11. Ha! The short version rocks!!!
