Everyone's argument for why they don't like this movie is always, "Because it's just bad." But then again, when asked why I like it so much I say, "Because it's just good."

Good film, I remember being shocked at John Goodman's character as I'd just seen him in Roseanne at that point.

things like this are amazing, either you love it or hate it, kinda reminds me of Twin Peaks or any David Lynch Film at all, you either love or loathe. Monty Python is another one that kind of fits into this thinking

I don't like the BIG Lebowski, but maybe  that's because we only know Jeffrey "Dude" Lebowski. Maybe BL would turn out to be OK? :-)

It's actually been a decent while since I've seen The Big Lebowski, but this post has me eager to reminisce.

kalron I've been trying to remember if I've watched the whole movie or not (I am cursed with a Dory-esque memory when it comes to movies and books). I think I started to watch it once and stopped because I wasn't enjoying it. Maybe it's time for me to give it another go.

I have never seen the movie, and now I know why. This scene looks like a first rehearsal, or an improv that didn't gel. Considering who the actors are, that has to be the way the director wanted the whole movie to look. I would not have thought that Bridges or Elliot could do sloppy work, even on command.

skypirate Whoosh! ~Squrlz ducks to avoid comment flying over his head~

See, when you live in an oak tree and forage for much of the day, you tend to fall behind on your pop culture knowledge. Throw a squirrel a nut here. "Tay Tay GIF"?

skypirate Oh! I had never heard her referred to as Tay Tay before, thus the confusion. Thanks! Clearly, I need to get out more.

The only part I enjoyed was when they were spreading 
that guy's ashes and buddy got it all in the face.
Other than that, I hated every minute of it.

I finally saw this movie for the first time this year. I'm not sure why I never saw it sooner, but I loved it, and have seen it at least 10 times since when it's on HBO or Showtime, or whatever it happens to be on when I'm channel surfing. Great character study. Everyone shines, even Tara Reid, the weakest link of the movie.
