The Big Lebowski, Paperback
4 out of 5 (1 rating)


This is the screenplay to another offbeat movie by the Academy Award-winning Coen brothers.

As a result of a case of mistaken identity, Jeffrey Lebowski - alias The Dude - finds himself entangled in a kidnapping caper as a bag man - a situation that goes from bad to even worse due to the interference of his hapless bowling partners.

Like the award-winning Fargo, "The Big Lebowski" is suffused with a droll humour and exhibits the Coen brothers' ability to frighten, entertain and startle the audience's expectations.

Review by

Loved the movie so I had to read the book. This is one case where I enjoyed the movie more than the book - which I suppose makes sense considering that the book is based on the movie.Don't buy this thinking you're going to get more than you got in the movie - it's not the case. It is, however, very entertaining.
