ELEVEN, Tues­day, 9pm, MA15+ ( 1998)

Geelong Advertiser - TV Guide - - MOVIES -

The Coen Broth­ers show­cased their weird genius with this screw­ball comedy of mis­taken iden­tity. Jeff Bridges ( pic­tured) is a rev­e­la­tion as a stoner layabout The Dude. When two mob­sters mis­take him for a mil­lion­aire with a loan to re­pay, the vic­tim is The Dude’s beloved rug, lead­ing him and buddy Wal­ter ( John Good­man) on a quest for pay­back. Along the way they en­counter al­most ev­ery ec­cen­tric in LA – hip­pies, ni­hilists and a bowl­ing en­thu­si­ast. With an an­ar­chic script and a warmth be­yond the reach of most come­dies,

Le­bowski is a rare achieve­ment.
