The Big Lebowski (1998)

**** out of 5

Coen brothers films tend to be more farce in nature, and thus something of an acquired taste. The characters aren't really people you connect to emotionally; they are caricatures, crafted solely to be amusing, and on that level this film is certainly successful, playing as a sort of satire on the classic Film Noir story, but instead of a hard-boiled private detective, we have as the lead character, "The Dude," a burned-out slacker played by Jeff Bridges, and his two bowling teammates, played with great humor by Steve Buscemi and John Goodman.
