      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      The Big Lebowski's shaggy dog story won't satisfy everybody, but those who abide will be treated to a rambling succession of comic delights, with Jeff Bridges' laconic performance really tying the movie together.

      Jonathan Romney Sight & Sound The Big Lebowski is at once utterly inconsequential and a blow for a cinematic slacker aesthetic. Jun 8, 2023 Full Review Adam Kempenaar Filmspotting 25 years later, the movie where every detail matters and doesn’t matter at all, is as hilarious as ever – and more poignant, man. Rated: 5/5 Mar 23, 2023 Full Review Desson Thomson Washington Post With their inspired, absurdist taste for weird, peculiar Americana, the Coens have defined and mastered their own bizarre subgenre. No one does it like them and, it almost goes without saying, no one does it better. Jan 24, 2023 Full Review Cory Woodroof For the Win (USA Today) It’s just one of the most original films ever made, perhaps the best world the Coens imagined and the one filled with its best characters. Feb 22, 2024 Full Review Mark Jackson Epoch Times Bridge's thespian mastery, via the slacker zeitgeist of our time, converts The Dude's funniest lines into a readily-understood language of everyday desperation. This ultimately begat the religion of Dudeism. Which makes 'Lebowski' an important movie. Rated: 4/5 Apr 21, 2023 Full Review Stephen Silver Tilt Magazine The Coen Brothers introduced the world to The Dude, Jesus, Walter, Maude, and a fantasia of burnt-out ex-hippie in a Raymond Chandler plot. (25th anniversary) Rated: 5/5 Mar 19, 2023 Full Review Read all reviews

      Alex K. IT WAS ABSOLUTELY AN AMAZING EXPERIENCE!!! THE THEATER WAS FULL OF PEOPLE!!! THE BEST COMEDY EVER!!! 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻 Rated 5 out of 5 stars 11/07/23 Full Review David M A classic and a must-watch at least once a year. First time seeing in a theatre! Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 11/23/22 Full Review Creede C Peak comedy and acting Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 05/09/24 Full Review Paolo A One of the best movie I've ever seen. Even if you didn't know ANYTHING about nihilism before watching the movie, I assure that you will start gaining interest about this topic! AMAZING movie, trust my words. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 05/06/24 Full Review Akash A I can't be the only one that was thoroughly unimpressed. One of the weirdest, allover movies I have ever seen. I wouldn't say weird in a good way. The plot never really pulled me in and I was kind of looking for the next plot point, not to gobble it up, but moreso to catch on to something. I didn't see much comedy, though it got a few good laughs out of me. Dude's wardrobe is actually pretty cool if you look at it. But I'm not a fan of entering the world of a 'bum'. I suppose I like movies that take me somewhere else, to an interesting setting or plot-line. Which this provided neither. Maybe I'm also one of the few that hates the annoying character like Walter -- it creates frustration and annoyance if you ask me. His whole role is annoying - although Goodman plays it well. The movie doesn't really offer great cinematography or storytelling, though some sets / locations / houses are cool. It's really just a bunch of elements thrown / mixed together - and if you're looking for that, something like 'The Hangover', 'The Dictator', or 'The Interview' nails that much better. Hailed as one of the best movies of all time - I quite frankly don't see it. However if you check my reviews, you may find I tend to not enjoy movies others do, and enjoy movies others don't -- maybe it's a trend. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 05/06/24 Full Review Aender S This film was an absolute phenomenon back when it came out and still is to this day.
