Spawning what could easily be called the largest group of festivals celebrating a single film, Lebowski Fest, a religion following the dharma of the Dude called Dudeism, and a devoted fan following of so-called Achievers named for the Little Lebowski Urban Achievers —including Patton Oswalt, Tony Hawk, Talib Kweli, and Jennifer Lawrence— The Big Lebowski is an important pop culture milestone no matter how you slice it.
The Dude is back – but is Jeff Bridges about to pull the rug from under us?
It so defined the character that Bridges even named his band, The Abiders , after it. This line in particular became mainstream after becoming a popular template for top text, bottom text memes way back in the day. His introductory scene is so iconic it was recently referenced on The Bachelor although it was not as well-received. Turturro loved the character so much he decided to reprise his role in his remake of Going Places , still awaiting release.
While there are plenty of examples of odd profanity-laden line changes, this one takes the cake: "fuck" becomes "fight," and "ass" becomes "Alps," creating a preposterous mental image with virtually nothing to do with the film itself.
Censorship at its finest. It became so indispensably associated with the character that Bridges starred in a Kahlua commercial advertising the drink. The Big Lebowski is a film packed with characters stumbling over their words, with lots of ums, likes, and wells peppered into their sentences.
