‘The Dude’ must be one of the best characters in cinema history. So when I heard that the Lebowski Fest was today, I had to do some research to see how Jeff Bridges feels about the honor. Here’s what he said: “I’ve been to a Lebowski Fest! Oh yeah! I love it! Oh gosh! Well, I’m a big fan of that movie. That’s a great movie.” He also said that he was upset when the movie first came out and did not get a lot of attention (it only made $17 million in theaters), but is glad to see it has legs.
