Big Lebowski, The (1998)

Jeff ‘the Dude’ Lebowski (Bridges) is an easy-going man. His life in LA is ultra laid back and his response to most of life’s problems is to go bowling . . .

When his house is broken into by two gangsters who pee on his favourite rug he finds himself becoming quite angry.

When he discovers the crooks think they are chasing ‘the Big Lebowski’ (‘Big’ as in millionaire), whose wife owes them a lot of money, he is furious.


The Dude sets off to demand compensation (or at least rug-cleaning) from the Big Lebowski, only to find himself immersed in a series of events that span a kidnapping scenario, the art world and the porn industry.

Dude’s biggest bowling buddy is Walter Sobchak (Goodman), a Vietnam veteran who attributes every cause and effect in life to the USA’s involvement ‘over there’.He does it when he’s bowling, and he does it when he says he’s not doing it.

The other bowling buddy, Donny (Buscemi), is lucky to be able to speak at all.
