    I just saw The Big Lebowski today for the first time - had heard so much about it - and that there's annual Lebowski-fests - so I was expecting something awesome.

    It was OK, but not even what I would call "good" - so, if there's any RABID FANS on here, what am I missing out on? :headscratch:

    It took me three tries just to make it to the end. A big, big nothing. HH

    one of my top 5 movies!

    You have to be a big Cohen (sp?) Bros fan to 'get it'

    He really liked that rug.

    C'mon, the techno psycho paths with the ferret... that was hilarious.

    I would have trouble trusting any guy that did not like dogs or just dig the Big Lebowski!

    "It's in there somewhere let me have another look."

    The bowling "mark it foul" scene is one of the best in any movie. It is one of my top 5 favorites but if you do not like it, you do not like it.

    There are plenty of movies I do not get like Kill Bill.

    OP- I agree. Much like Old Men/Country- Too over rated and not much plot. Pass.

    Very quotable, the dude does indeed abide, and Sam Elliot really 'brings it together'.

    It's just about an unfortunate loser, who ends up in strange situations.

    C'mon, what about the nihilists? They're funny.
