the big lebowski,
By A Customer
This review is from: Big Lebowski [DVD]  [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
The Coen brothers ("Fargo") have done it again. Mixing in Leninist philosphy, mistaken identity, crazy characters, a kidnapping plot, and a deep love of bowling, they have unleashed upon an unsuspecting world the many glories of "The Big Lebowski". Two mobsters break into the apartment of Jeff Lebowski in the errant belief that they are accosting a millionaire - not the laid-back, unemployed, stuck in the '70s Jeff Lebowski who calls himself Dude. Through a complex kidnapping plot, the Dude and his budy are swept up in a hilarious Coenesque comedy/thriller of extortion, double-cross, deception, embezzlement, sex and dope.
