The Dude Abides

To be married is to enter into your spouse's interests, or some of them. My sister has blogged on her growing love and understanding of NFL football. I'm not there, but last night I did succumb to watching The Big Lebowski.

I am told this movie is universally loved, almost exclusively, by men

It's really a movie about nothing, crammed full of one-liners glittering with all the appeal of quotability. "Say what you like about the tenants of National Socialism, but at least it's an ethos."

I expected to be wildly offended but I wasn't. There were boobies, yes, but the Dude was refreshingly off-put by the porn. ("He makes women of objects.") There is a lot of vulgarity, but it's mostly forgettable.

Lebowski is a movie to remember, not to understand. And now I've watched it. What is there left to do in our marriage?

I got lucky -- Superman is one of the few of his sex who have no interest in the film. I've seen it. It's not the worst thing on film, but I would call it forgettable and highly overrated.

I couldn't tell if you liked it or not, girlfriday? I love this movie. I'm sure you are all shocked by this.

I'm ambivelant. It's not a movie to enjoy, really. It's just a movie to remember. Can't put my finger on it.

Swingers. Yeah, but see I like that one.

Godfather. I guess that's where we go from here. Except I probably won't go.

You have nothing to fear from "The Godfather" -- worlds better than "The Big Lebowski" (though that's not saying a whole awful lot).
