Audience Reviews for The Big Lebowski

  • Sep 09, 2016
    Visually tasteful and fluid chemistry and performances for a Coen Brothers' cult film. The Big Lebowski is a simple story that requires no over-analyzing to delve into its narrative and concept. It's effective, humorous and overall a wacky classic. 4/5

    One of the best comedies ever and a personal favourite of mine. The Big Lebowski is by far one of the Coen brothers' best film and a film you should definitely check out. If you don't at least like this film... Yeah, well, that's just, like, your opinion, man.
