  • Weirdly engaging, like its hero. Full Review

  • In a perfect world all movies would be made by the Coen brothers. Full Review

  • As tempting as it is to completely dismiss The Big Lebowski, it's hard to do because the Coens are able to create wickedly funny eccentrics and possess the ability to energize certain actors to inhabit them completely. Full Review

  • This plot need not be taken too seriously. Watching it amble along is enough of a treat, since the Coens populate this story with oddballs and bowling balls of such comic variety. Full Review

  • Magnificent. A multiplex-friendly critics' movie in the stripped-down Blood Simple/Fargo style, but with a more restrained hint of Raising Arizona slapstick. A crime-sex-drugs-kidnap-bowling-nihilism mystery of the highest order. Full Review

  • BBC

    It's the wealth of great characters and their insane dialogue that make this a memorable film. Full Review
