DVD: The Big Lebowski (18)
"That rug really tied the room together," the Dude, justifiably, laments after two thugs pee on his carpet.
The Coen brothers' most quotable, re-watchable and funniest film comes to Blu-ray. Jeff Bridges is Jeff "The Dude" Lebowski, a lazy ("quite possibly the laziest in Los Angeles County") slacker whose life (which involves weed, White Russians and bowling) is disrupted by two dim gangsters who believe he's the LA millionaire Jeffrey Lebowski. They wreck his rug and dunk his head in the toilet bowl. The Dude is appalled, so goes to visit the real Lebowski, thus starting an unhinged journey that involves lost toes, German nihilists and lots of profanity. Bridges is excellent, but his deranged bowling pal, Walter (John Goodman), provides the biggest laughs.
