One of the best and funniest movies ever made

My opinion, of course.. :)

There's a whole cult following, too. They have a Lebowski Fest every year out in Louisville. Well, Louisville is out there to me, I'm way out here on the Left Coast.

We went to an "outer" fest they had in Vegas and I hope to make it to one in Louisville sometime.

I've had a couple parties at my house in the summer/early fall with a screening outside using a laptop and a LCD projector.
We have lots of White Russians and Oat Sodas (beer).

For those that have not seen it (how could you??!!) it's about Jeff "The Dude" Lebowski (Jeff Bridges) trying to solve the case of the missing hot young wife Bunny (Tara Reid) of the "Big Lebowski" (David Huddleston).
Turns out she's been kidnapped by some nhilists (or maybe not).
The Dude likes to bowl with Walter (John Goodman) and Donnie (Steve Buscemi), really wants his rug back that tied the room together (it got peed on) and particularly loves White Russians. Which are good, I must admit.

I think this movie has one of the best comic scripts ever. It's fucking amazing.
Did I use the F-word? Hope you don't mind, because the Coen Bros. added it about 270 times to this script (or so I read on the Internets).
Oh, then there's John Turturro as The Jesus. You'll never look at purple jumpsuits the same way again.
When you rent this (and you should) it might take a couple viewings to catch it all and get the brilliance. But you will. Unless there is something wrong with you. Go back to mother Russia if you don't like Coen Bros. movies!

I write this because I think it's about time for another outdoor viewing within the next few weeks or so.

Bring your vodka, Kahlua and Oat Sodas, please..

the woman and i just watched this over the weekend. too goddamn funny. the tara reid quote is priceless.
we kept the subtitles on so we wouldn't miss anything. every line is genius.

btw-don't have your outdoor viewing on shabbas.

that means I don't drive a car, I don't turn on the oven, and I sure as shit don't fucking roll!

there's one mistake in the subtitles that I have found so far.
when The Dude is looking along the wall at the pictures, there's one of Charlton Heston and he says "Chuck", but in the subtitles it says the pope for some reason.
Moses, I could understand.. :)

Ron Blood and Candy Hunter-Blood have put their house on the market and soon hope to put their belongings in storage and hit the road.
I'll be sure to tell others about this place.
I have a exotic car rental arizona
