So we watched the DVD. I gave it about twenty minutes--to be polite--though after about three of them I knew I hadn't the slightest idea in the world what the hell this--thing--was about. Here's a bunch of guys who they seem to think are 'with it' I suppose. The dialogue is essentially one raunchy joke followed by another cheesy joke, with a "f" bomb about every four seconds. The twenty minutes seemed like 20,000 years in Sing Sing, as the book goes.
Apparently most people love this movie. I'd like to see a breakdown of the demographics.
This is surely not the best movie ever made by the Coens, but it is such great fun.
What did the Dude say after 5 dips of his head in the toilet bowl, asked where the money was? Let me have another look, it must be in there somewhere. Or something like that.
What did he say when the gangster shows him the bowling ball and asks: what is this? No, he does not say: can't you see it is a golf ball. He says what I put in the headline.
What made me watch it again today? First of all, watching Bridges as Bad Blake yesterday reminded me that I wanted to revisit Lebowski since some time. Second, I had a discussion in a comment thread around here about the fact that comedies age. Some that I remembered as hilarious from decades ago, like Polanski's vampire joke, or like Mel Brooks' Young Frankenstein, have on revisit turned out to have become stale. I wanted to check if Lebowski is stale already. Good news: it isn't! But it is a mess of a movie. Never mind, invest two hours of your time and enjoy it!
Bridges is annoying in his cheech and chong role. Goodman is equally annoying, and all he does is curse the whole time. I cant find one good thing to say about this movie. I kept waiting for something, but it never happened. Absolute waste of 2 hours. The most perplexing part is all the good reviews it has gotten. HOW? and WHY?
DO not waste your time!
Universal has probably the poorest record of all major studios when it comes to catalogue titles. And Lebowski is another victim of this cost cutting strategy (no new transfers, recycle and overprocess old ones instead).
