TV & FILM

We've all got busy lives, so I understand if you can't watch this rather long video right now, but bookmark it for later, you're not gonna want to miss this. In the video, Jeff Bridges, John Goodman, and Steve Buscemi gather on Today to chat about their respective roles as The Dude, Walter Sobchak, and Donny Kerabatsos in The Coen Brothers' The Big Lebowski.
The cult that grew around that film is one I'll never fully wrap my head around. It's a great film, top 5 Coen Brothers flick for me, but I'm just dumbfounded at the depth and breadth and overall enormity of this film's fan base. It's literally a flick about a stoner who just wants his favorite rug replaced and gets in over his head thanks to his dumb friend's grand ambitions at outsmarting a criminal syndicate.
There's also nihilists, bowling tournaments, filthy smut peddlers, angry sheriffs, a musical number, and perhaps the greatest porn parody ever put to film starring adult icon Karl Hungus. It's just not the kind of movie I expect to hear quoted, especially by the people who tend to quote it a lot.
Anyways, it's a nice trip down memory lane for these three old pals, and seeing them together will certainly warm the heart of any Lebowski fan.
