The Big Lebowski | 1998 | R | - 5.5.10

Jeff Bridges stars in this comedy/thriller about mistaken identities. With John Goodman and Steve Buscemi.

SEX/NUDITY 5 - Sexual innuendo and oral sex, masturbation and child molestation references. Scantily clad women in a few scenes, female bare buttocks and a brief shot of full frontal female nudity. A porn film is seen on TV showing a woman's bare breasts. An extended scene where topless women are bounced up and down on a big blanket (shown at least twice). A drawing of a naked man. A couple is shown in bed together with sheets up to their shoulders, evidently after sex.

VIOLENCE/GORE 5 - A man is beaten up by a group of men, including having his head shoved into a toilet. A man is hit in the jaw. A gun is accidentally fired and a man crashes his car as a result. A man is thrown on the ground and when he's picked up we hear bones creaking. A police officer throws a man around and kicks him. A little bit of blood is seen on some gauze on a toe. A man bites another man's ear off and we see blood where the ear was; the biter's face is bloody and we see him spitting the ear out. Reckless driving, lots of scenes of property damage. A frenzied ferret is thrown into a tub with a man and nearly scratches and hurts the man as a result. Threatening with a gun.

LANGUAGE 10 - About 240 F-words, many scatological references, many anatomical references, many mild obscenities.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
