Pom Pom as Walter Sobchak

The Big Lebowski is a 1998 comedy film written and directed by Joel and Ethan Coen starring Jeff Bridges and John Goodman. The movie has become a cult classic for its originality and direction, eccentric characters, and convoluted plot. The Brothers Chaps sometimes slip references to this movie in Homestar Runner cartoons.
