The scene with the cliff and the coffee can made me almost pee my pants. Almost. The soundtrack is one of my favorite cds (it's got a Yma Sumac track, and Mancini's Lujon).

Yep, The Caucus mountains are now in the independant states of Georgia, Azerbaijan and a few others. The residents are "Caucasians" - In effect, "white russians."

This I think is my biggest take-away from the move, I so adore what I call "recursive" humor.

Oh, that and whenever I am being purposely obstinante (which is often), I'm always "Finishing MY coffee."

Yes, quite a good joke.

Right up there with the Brett introduction joke in There's Something About Mary.

It made me plotz.

Humuhumu,

That's the best soundtrack since Jaws!
And it's made a generation look past Kenny Rogers' years of country spew to find a real gem in his back catalogue.

Benno - You've gotta see this with me so that I can say every line before it's said so that'd be really fun... for me... except for when you kick my ass because I begin pissin' you off!! Best f'in movie ever! There's gotta be a good white russian drinking game that we could do w/this movie. We could do it every time they say "fuck" or a derivative thereof, but I think that happens approx. 3x per minute (true - read that statistic on the unofficial BL website). Could do it w/"Dude"... no, we'd be tanked after 15 minutes. I've got it - every time they show a bowling ball or there's a reference to bowling, we've gotta take a sip... that'll get us good and tank'd!

Has anybody noticed "The Dude's" bamboo tiki bar in his apartment?

The Plaza(an art deco art theatre) in Atlanta just showed this for a midnight movie on Friday. I never noticed the tiki bar on the small screen. It was awsome on the bid screen!

I though when I moved to LA I'd get a cool apartment like the Dude's. More Hollywood lies!

I love that scene when they attack the wrong guys car-HA!

The Big Lebowski is one of my favorite movies of all time! John Goodman is an absolute genius as Walter.

Nothing new to say here, but Rev, you gotta see the movie.
One of my favorites.

"they pissed on your fucking rug..."

oh my god, The Big Lebowski is BRILLIANT!
John Goodman is genius, and John Turtorro (sp?) (Jesus) steals the movie in the 5 minutes he's on screen. "Nobody fucks with the Jesus"

How about little Tara Reid as Bunny Lebowski? and Mr. Pineapple's favorite, Julianne Moore as Maude Lebowski... the painting scene? the line about the compulsive fornicator...
and when the sheriff of Malibu throws the coffee mug..."I hate the fucking Eagles"

heeeheeeheeee
oh man, now we need to watch the movie...
