Joel and Ethan Coen’s film The Big Lebowski actually received mixed reviews when it was released in 1998. The film has since become a cult classic, however, and it will be available to stream on Netflix on June 1.
The Coen Brothers set out to write a film that sees the characters unravel a mystery and contain a complex plot that ends up not even mattering in the end. It is goofy, funny, and clever, and it keeps you entertained throughout its 117-minute runtime.
Jeff Bridges leads this all-star cast as The Dude. Some of his hilarious lines include: “I’m the Dude. So that’s what you call me. You know, that or, uh, His Dudeness, or uh, Duder, or El Duderino if you’re not into the whole brevity thing.” He is joined by acclaimed actors John Goodman, Julianne Moore, Steve Buscemi, David Huddleston, John Turturro, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Sam Elliott, Peter Stormare, Flea, and a very young Tara Reid.
Is The Big Lebowski on Netflix?
Not yet, but soon enough! Netflix will begin streaming The Big Lebowski on June 1 at 12:01 am PST / 3:01 a.m. EST. Depending on what part of the world you’re in when the movie is released, it might be a bit early or a bit late. In any case, pour yourself a White Russian, The Dude’s favorite cocktail, and enjoy.
The film follows The Dude as he becomes a victim of mistaken identity. Yes, his real name is Jeffery Lebowski, but he isn’t THAT Lebowski. The Big Lebowski is a different man with the same name who is known to be very wealthy. Some thugs get the wrong guy, and the hilarity just builds from there.
The cult followers of the movie call themselves “achievers” and attend the annual Lebowski Fest. This event celebrates the movie with a screening of the film, a bowling party, and live music. The attendees even come dressed at their favorite characters from the film. Many books are devoted to The Big Lebowski on a wide range of topics relating to events in the movie.
