Movie Recommendations: The Big Lebowski

The Big Lebowski
PLOT: Jeffrey "The Dude" Lebowski is a lovable slacker, until his house is broken into and his rug is peed on by two angry gangsters who have mistaken him for Jeffrey Lebowski, a millionaire, whose wife owes some very bad people a large sum of money. The Dude becomes entangled in the plot when he goes to visit the Big Lebowski in order to get some money to replace his rug, and is recruited to work between Lebowski and the captors of his now "kidnapped" wife.
QUICK REVIEW: This movie has truly great performances by Goodman and Bridges. It also has a interesting plot, quick and sharp dialogue and some sharp visuals. The Coen brothers turly gave alot of care to this movie and it shows and is one of their best movies - for me it's stands up with Fargo and No Country For Old Men.
RATING: R for pervasive strong language, drug content, sexuality and brief violence.
RUN TIME: 1 hr 58 min
