Jeffrey "The Dude" Lebowski is the ultimate L.A. slacker, until the day his house is broken into and his rug is ruined by two angry gangsters who have mistaken him for Jeffrey Lebowski, the L.A. millionaire, whose wife owes big money to some very bad people. "The Dude" becomes mixed up in the crazy plot when he goes to visit the real Lebowski in order to get some retribution for his soiled rug, and is recruited to be the liason between Lebowski and the captors of his now "kidnapped" wife. 
 
Starring: Jeff Bridges, John Goodman, Julianne Moore, Steve Buscemi, David Huddleston, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Tara Reid, Philip Moon and Mark Pellegrino.
