Man, you're right - I must own The Big Lebowski.

I'm trying to think of another movie in the same genre of comedy. Office Space isn't the same type of humor, but the same people who are fans of Lebowski, Napoleon, etc. seem to like it as well.

Oh my gosh,....Office Space has to be one of my favorite all time movies. We joke about it all the time here at work because our RL environment is so much like the movie it's almost sad....too funny though!

Me too! I actually got a Red Swingline Staple gun for Christmas this year, haha.

HR just made this announcement over email today "Don’t forget that Thursday, February 3, 2005, is Jersey Day….Wear a jersey, cap or sweatshirt for your favorite football team!"
Haha, my buddy sent me the "Hawaiian Shirt" wav file. LOL

The Big Lebowski is one of my favorite movies of all time along with Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. I might have to give ND a run. How would you compare ND to Rushmore? I thought Rushmore was great but most people I know didn't "get it" and thought it was "dumb." I guess if a movie doesn't have $10 million dollars worth of special effects and a subpar plot, it's not worth their time. Simpletons.

I love the movies of Wes Anderson. Rushmore was so refreshing. I get so burned out on much of the drivel that hollywood puts out but every once in a while you get these gems. His first movie, BottleRocket is truly great. Its kind of hard to find unless you have Netflix or a very good local video store but it's well worth the effort to find it.

Also the Coen brothers first film, Blood simple is fantastic.

Paul Thomas Anderson's first film Hard Eight is brilliant.

David Dobkin's clay pigeons.

Christopher Nolan's first film, the following.

Ahkuma,
Bottle Rocket is one of my favorite comedies. If I hadn't watched it with my buddy, I might not ever have understood the humor. We recite the catch phrases any time we hang out, "get away driver go!". The Wilson's brothers best stuff. I can't wait to see "life aquatic".
