Tie your weekend together with free 'Big Lebowski' tickets

With each line of dialogue more memorable — and quotable — than the last, the Coen Brother's supremely kooky slacker classic "The Big Lebowski" will roll its way onto the big screen at the Loft this weekend — and you could win free tickets!

The insanely, profanely funny film will screen Friday through Monday, man. While it flopped in theaters during its initial release, the movie's become a cult classic that holds up to repeated viewings.

From our friends at the Loft Cinema:

In The Big Lebowski, a ridiculous case of mistaken identity embroils ultimate slacker Jeff “The Dude” Lebowski in a kidnapping case and throws him into the role of hapless detective in the Coens’ off-kilter homage to Raymond Chandler and Howard Hawks’ The Big Sleep.

All The Dude (Jeff Bridges, in a sublimely hilarious performance that gets better with each viewing, man) wants to do is go bowling, but when he’s mistaken for LA millionaire big Lebowski and a pair of knuckle-headed thugs pee on his rug – “It really tied the room together!” – he’s forced to take action, and so the laziest man in Los Angeles takes on murderous nihilists, angry ferrets, naked performance artists and morally corrupt tycoons, guzzling White Russians and dreaming of the perfect bowling match all the while. Filled with shaggy dog shenanigans and endlessly quotable dialogue, the Coen Brothers’ unstoppable cult classic The Big Lebowski delivers gut-busting hilarity from start to finish, aided immeasurably by a stellar cast including John Goodman, Julianne Moore, Philip Seymour Hoffman and John Turturro as the supremely badass bowler “Jesus.” (Dir. by Joel Coen, 1998, USA, 117 mins., Rated R)
