The Big Lebowski: 20th Anniversary Showing
I laughed more today than I have in a long time. It was all due to the 20th Anniversary showing of The Big Lebowski on the big screen. I went with a friend - who, believe it or not, had never seen the movie! - to a screening at what turned out to be a sold out presentation.
The movie was part of TCM and Fathom Events showing of classic movies. They have a couple every month that are shown for 2 days. This Coen Brothers feature, is a cult classic around the world. I have yet to be on a continent where this movie didn't have a solid fan base. And there is no doubt that this is the movie most associated with Jeff Bridges and that's saying something.
Even though I have seen this movie numerous times, I still laughed until I cried. Today, I believe my friend was laughing even harder than I was. This movie has an all-star cast. It is a type of movie that could make a funeral laugh, or in the case of Lebowski, have us watch a funeral and laugh.
If you haven't seen this movie, then what is wrong with you??? WATCH IT! On a scale of five this rates a ten. Remember, you can sleep easy tonight because the Dude abides. Say what? Shut the fuck up, Donny.
