Classic film: The Big Lebowski (1998)

LA slacker and enthusiastic ten-pin bowler, Jeffrey ‘The Dude’ Lebowski’s (Jeff Bridges) life unravels after a strange case of mistaken identity. Drawn into a ransom deal alongside dodgy friend Walter Sobchak (John Goodman), easy going Lebowski becomes the centre point for a plethora of crooks, losers, seductresses and rich people.

The Coen brother’s brilliant cult comedy was surprisingly a failure at the box office upon its release, yet over the years has built up a legendary reputation. Bridges is incredible as The Dude, and the ensemble cast is hilarious. This is one of the films you’ll be quoting all day after watching. Slapstick at its very best.
