Title: References to Lebowski
Post by: iAbide81 on May 02, 2017, 04:11:23 PM
So I was watching "Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back" a couple nights ago and caught something...

The woman in front of them is wearing The Dude's sweater! (I found it online for $239!) (https://www.pendleton-usa.com/product/Men/SWEATERS/SWEATERS/THE-ORIGINAL-WESTERLEY/173082/sc/1727/c/1727/pc/1814.uts)

Also a great reference to The Dude and bowling (https://youtu.be/Hzlxhy6JoS8?t=1m27s) on "The Simpsons" this season. (You may have to turn up the volume to hear and appreciate it.)

Anyone else notice other references to The Dude or the film in general in movies and television? Also, if you can point me in the direction of where to get Lebowski items (like a rug that really ties the room together or his bathrobe), that would be excellent.

Jeff Bridges newer film Crazy Heart had somewhat of a reference to TBL (in my opinion). In the film, Bridges plays an aging country musician that has a gig at a bowling alley. This leads into a few shots where Bridges is sitting at the bar and the lanes are framed behind him. Very Lebowski-esk. Might just be a little homage, but I thought it was pretty neat.

Here's an article on the connections between TBL and CH

Far out, man. I knew there had to be some sort of connection. Thank you!
