Pretentious hipsters *lurve* bowling.
And the Big Lebowski, but we don't discuss that.

Is it a straight boy thing?
I've never understood the love for this movie. I've tried.
R4, I'd say it's overrated. It's supposed to be a modern take on a classic genre, but even that kind of thing has its limits.
I know everyone loves "The Dude," but to be honest? Every time I see the movie, I can't help but think he's pretty gross and unappealing. In a Nick Nolte "Down and Out in Beverly Hills" way. Also, I don't care for Julianne Moore as an actor...especially not in a skimpy outfit.
A lot of demographics are way into this film, but I think it's most widely acclaimed among hipsters, men's men, stoners and some film snobs.
