4 out of 10 The Dude Abides
Philip from Dublin, 30 Jun 2009
Like all Cohen brothers films, you'll either love it or find it perplexing. This is one of their best - a mad shaggy dog story filled with great characters and some hilarious scenes. While hilarious, there is also an underlining sadness about some of the characters that makes it quite touching (although a lot of people miss this about their films). But beware - if you rent this you might find yourself buying a copy, watching it over and over, and annoying people by quoting its catchphrases.

5 out of 10 Life has a warning lable
Elaine from Donegal, 02 Mar 2011
Mr. Lebowski is the only man who can call a drink "A Caucasian" Rarely does a film like this appear to show the youth of today what life will really be like once they graduate. This film reminds me of Mohammad Ali except for the success and fame. Dude Lebowski suffers knockbacks and endures an endless string of disappointments yet somehow manages to stay positive and fight for what is rightfully his eg his rug and car. Stay in college and strive to live the life of the dude.

4.5 out of 10 Big Lebowski
Darren from Limerick, 21 Apr 2008
Excellently produced film from the Coen Brothers, Jeff Bridges shines in his role as a slacker, worlds apart from his usual acting stints. Quite a lot does develop over the 100mins or so, and one questions the outcome of some of minor characters in this film.. great plot twists to leave you guessing the motive behind the madness Definitely worth a view.. but not on a lazy day! D

3.5 out of 10 Good for a laugh
Dave from Galway, 10 Feb 2010
Not bad, but for me this didn't live up to the hype. No better or worse than the Coens' 'Burn After Reading' for example. Still, Bridges and Goodman do their thing very well, and Julianne Moore is as foxy as ever.

What's it about....
The Dude, Jeff Lebowski (Jeff Bridges) is unemployed and laid-back. That is until he becomes a victim of mistaken identity, two thugs breaking into his apartment in the errant belief that they are accosting Jeff Lebowski the Pasadena millionaire. In hope of getting a replacement for soiled carpet, the Dude visits his wealthy namesake and, with buddy, ex ‘Nam’ veteran, Walter (John Goodman), he is swept into a consequence comedy/thriller of extortion, embezzlement, sex, and...
