Such an underrated movie, I mean seriously underrated. People refer to specific movies as “cult-classics” and yet this one doesn’t make most lists. Here is why this movie is fantastic:
- John Goodman’s role is epic. One of my absolute favorites.
- “The Dude” is a character we all know.
- White Russians became one of my favorite drinks of all times because of this film.
- It’s got drama, action and comedy. Maybe not side-splitting comedy like Superbad, but it’s slightly “off” comedy is killer.
The movie follows the life of a total bum names Jeffrey Lebowski, aka, The Dude, El Dudarino or His Royal Dudeness. He is like every long haired hippy uncle you can think who loves to bowl and listens to Credence.
So this guy, The Dude, gets mistaken for some rich guy with the same name. In doing so, the chaos unleashes and you can’t help but laugh at the classic movie quotes that have come from this movie. Below are a few of my personal favorites.
“Let me explain something to you. Um, I am not “Mr. Lebowski”. You’re Mr. Lebowski. I’m the Dude. So that’s what you call me. You know, that or, uh, His Dudeness, or uh, Duder, or El Duderino if you’re not into the whole brevity thing”
“Hey, careful, man, there’s a beverage here!”
And my personal favorite scene:
He is a digital nerd, major moviephile and an obsessive Superman fanboy. He believes Halloween deserves its own month, not day.
