Review In a word, The Big Lebowski is a mess. But what a glorious, wonderfully-entertaining mess it is. This film, the Coen Brothers' follow-up to the critically-lauded Fargo, isn't likely to generate the same degree of universal praise. In fact, those expecting something along similar lines to the 1997 Oscar nominee may be disappointed. The Big Lebowski is an off-the-wall comedy that has more in common with Raising Arizona than with Fargo. Its single weakness, and what amounts to little more than a minor distraction, is that it doesn't have much of a plot, and what there is contains the kind of gaping holes that even the most obtuse viewer can identify...Once again, the Coens have chosen their cast well. With long hair, a beard, sunglasses, and a vapid expression, Jeff Bridges is perfect as the perpetually-stoned Dude...Problems with the plot notwithstanding, The Big Lebowski ranks as one of the most audacious comedies of recent years. The Coens keep the jokes coming, although some of them are so subtle they can easily be missed (for example, when The Dude writes a check for 69 cents). Profane, outrageous, and without inhibitions, The Big Lebowski further cements the Coens' reputation as independent film makers.

Review The Coen brothers' ``The Big Lebowski'' is a genial, shambling comedy about a human train wreck, and should come with a warning like the one Mark Twain attached to ``Huckleberry Finn'': ``Persons attempting to find a plot in it will be shot.'' It's about a man named Jeff Lebowski, who calls himself the Dude, and is described by the narrator as ``the laziest man in Los Angeles County.'' He lives only to go bowling, but is mistaken for a millionaire named the Big Lebowski, with dire consequences...This is the first movie by Joel and Ethan Coen since ``Fargo.'' Few movies could equal that one, and this one doesn't--but it's weirdly engaging, like its hero...In spirit, ``The Big Lebowski'' resembles the Coens' ``Raising Arizona,'' with its large cast of peculiar characters and its strangely wonderful dialogue. Here, in a film set at the time of the Gulf War, are characters whose speech was shaped by earlier times: Vietnam (Walter), the flower power era (the Dude) and ``Twilight Zone'' (Donny). Their very notion of reality may be shaped by the limited ways they have to describe it. One of the pleasures of ``Fargo'' was the way the Coens listened carefully to how their characters spoke. Here, too, note that when the In & Out Burger shop is suggested for a rendezvous, the Dude supplies its address: That's the sort of precise information he would possess.

Quotes
Desson Thomson, The Washington Post With their inspired, absurdist taste for weird, peculiar Americana...the Coens have defined and mastered their own bizarre subgenre.
Marjorie Baumgarten, Austin Chronicle ...paved with delightfully irregular and unanticipated bits of business...while renewing our faith in the sheer joy of watching movies.
Merle Bertrand, Film Threat Brilliantly scripted and full of a virtual Who's Who of familiar faces...another golden hunk of totally unique celluloid from the versatile Brothers Cohen.
Michael Wilmington, Chicago Tribune It put a smile on my face that never left for 117 minutes.
NBC-TV The Coen Brothers score again!
Rita Kempley, The Washington Post ...as visually inventive and wildly eccentric as the Coens' earlier movies...
Wade Major, Box Office Magazine ...uproariously hilarious in uniquely Coen fashion...
