I like to consider myself cinematically sophisticated. I’ll refuse to speak to people who haven’t seen certain masterpieces I regard as de rigeur for any intelligent adult. And yet I’d never seen The Big Lebowski. So when the Appeal and VidSF asked “The Beths” to cover the Lebowski Fest, I agreed, hoping I wouldn’t have to actually sit on someone’s bean bag, take a bong hit and watch this thing.

As my friend and fellow Coen Brothers snob Brock said to me, “Beth, we are Fargo people!”

But as I revealed my Friday night plans, it became clear to me a viewing was in order. I couldn’t go all the way to a bowling alley in Daly City and not know what the whole party was about. So mere hours before I had to be there, I borrowed a DVD and watched The Big Lebowski.

Apparently this film is impossible to understand unless one had viewed it 3 or more times. Eh, I got the gist and got to Daly City. And I have to admit, as much as the thought of rented shoes and vodka ruined with non-dairy creamer disagrees with me, I had a really good time.

Please enjoy.

    Kind of disappointed no one showed up as Saddam.

    Green bikinis should be mandatory wear and mullet hairdos for all fests.

    Really, you had not watch the Big Lebowski before Friday, color me shocked it was on G4 all last winter and Bravo had it on in April.

    I am just surprised no one showed off their bowling balls.

    non dairy creamer in a white russian!

    that’s practically a war crime!

    Yay, the Beths!

    I did not understand a word of that story, but it was great to see Beth, Sean and Melissa all in one place!

    Not to mention, bowling, a green bikini and … did that guy have tighty-whitey underwear taped to his shirt?
