We watched The Big Lebowski on Wednesday night. I was underwhelmed. I've seen quirky humor done better, both before and after 1998 (the year of its release). My primary entertainment while watching this film came from playing the "Hey, that's So-and-So!" game while recognizing stars like Julianne Moore, Steve Buscemi, David Thewlis and Phillip Seymour Hoffman before they were well-known. I liked the other Coen productions that I've seen much better than this one (Raising Arizona and Fargo come to mind).
