The Big Lebowski, written and directed by the Coen brothers, is one of the most memorable comedies of the 1990s as well as a highlight of Joel and Ethan's filmmaking career.
Starring Jeff Bridges, John Goodman, and the inimitable Steve Buscemi, The Big Lebowski tells the story of a hapless stoner, Jeffery 'the Dude' Lebowski, (Bridges) and his two bowling buddies Walter (Goodman) and Donny (Buscemi) as they find themselves tangled up in a kidnapping plot intended for a completely different Jeffery Lebowski — this one nicknamed 'the Big.' It's a story of trickery, deceit, and sometimes even idiocy, but it's never not hilarious.
Endlessly rewatchable and chock-full of quotable dialogue that remains on the forefront of the minds of movie lovers all over the world, it's no wonder why The Big Lebowski has easily earned itself the status of contemporary classic in the decades years since its 1998 release.
Yet, even if you've seen the film countless times, there are still plenty of little details, minor goofs, and unexpected cameos that probably slipped right past you (even on your millionth rewatch).
