I love this film, great script and wonderful acting, you can watch it again and again and it's still holds up.

Perfect film. One of the best comedies ever. Brilliant characters and endlessly quotable lines.

I actually didn't like this the first time I saw, but I gave it another chance and aren't I glad I did! A quite simply superb film which improves on every viewing. The lead characters are excellent and it has one of the greatest cameos ever, in the form of John Tuturro's Jesus Quintana.
 It was a travesty that it wasn't included in Channel 4's 50 Greatest Comedies. 5/5

Genius- one of the greatest comedies of all time? a film that when you first watch it you actually might not get it but after a further viewing something clicks and the beauty of this film becomes apparent. Thus begins hours upon hours of conversations with work collegues about best Coen brothers film so far!! buy it, watch it, watch it again, love it!

The Coen Brothers are on higher than top form with this darkly comic, perfectly writen and performed masterpiece. There is no doubt that you'll be quoting this for decades to come, and 'The Dude' is one of films greatest creations. But it's not just Jeff Bridges' stand out performance, his entire supporting cast is second to none. Goodman, Moore, Buscemi and, although it's only really a cameo role, Turturro all shine bright.
This movie, along with the likes of Fargo and Raising Arizona, has cemented the Coens into film making history.

We watched this more times than was healthy when I was a student. Even so, I can still watch this and it feels fresh and seems to get funnier with time. Big Lebowski rates as one of favourite films of all time!
I'll probably end up buying this special edition even though I already have the 'vanilla' disc, I was really hoping for a better batch of extras though.

This movie was very funny and a true joy to watch. It had plenty of memorable moments such as the bit where our heroes (if you can all them that) go looking for their stollen car you must watch to find out what happens but i can promise it is funny. The characters are also amazing espeacially Jesus a enemy of the main character the dude who loves bowling. I really do recommned it to fans of comedy and black humour beacause it is one of the most funniest things i have seen!

Great performances all round from the actors, and an interesting story. Very very clever dream sequences too.

Laidback, hilarious, witty and beautifully effortless, this masterpiece is one of the Coens most popular films and deservedley so. While offensive, the film is lovable due to its warth, colourful characters and eccentricities. Whether its their best is debatable but there's nothing quite like the Big lebowski for laidback entertainment.

I honestly love this film. It has awesome dialogue, rich with quirks nuances and lou-out-loud humour. Visually, it is stunning (that bowling ball cam was brilliant) and even it's tone is original. You will never see another movie like this....But...what is it about? the plot is confusing - but i'm sure it's intentional. I have a feeling we are not meant to get a traditional 'connecting of the dots' if you will...and perhaps...that is exactly what i love about this film. who knows.

Only got around to watching this t'other night, thought it was fucking top. Only even thought of watching it after reading after this piece on a music blog about a convention that came to London last month...

The scene where the ashes are 'disposed' off is just pure genius. The poignancy and sadness combined with the general laugh-out-loud humour makes for a truly unforgettable scene.
The Big Lebowski is a film I wont be forgetting in a long time.

When I first watched this I didn't like it. Didn't find it funny. Yet I felt compelled to watch it more and more till I loved it. This is a film that demands multiple viewings, you will see and hear things so subtle it's almost a certainty that you missed them first time round. An utterly amazing piece of entertainment, endlessly quoteable!

This is my second favourite Coen Broother's movie (1st being Raising Arizona). I love the bit with the board nailed to the floor propping the chair under the door handle. Along with Tarantino, Speilberg, and Eastwood, the Coen bros are very high up there in the list of my favourite directors!

The dude is my God. I follow in his footsteps as muh as I can. I am jobless, have a rug that really ties the room together, and I LOVE creedence. Now and again I'll do something that'll make me feel particularly dudish - like say to the man down at the job centre - well, that's just like, your opinion man.

More than a film really. Think of it as a bible in film format. Best watched whilst drinking a white russian.

Hilarious, genius, intelligent, lovable. If you do not love this film you do not love movies. Walter and the Dude, and even Donnie, are some of the greatest characters in cinema history
