For Ben's birthday pick we're talking about the Coen Brother's classic, The Big Lebowski, starring Jeff Bridges, John Goodman, Julianne Moore, Steve Buscemi, Tara Reid, Flea, John Turturo, Philip Seymour Hoffman, David Thewlis and Sam Elliot!
This episode was recorded like... two weeks before the weird Jeff Bridges teaser for that Stella, Superbowl commercial. This was all just some crazy, cosmic convergence, man.
On our MOON triple bill we caught Peter Bogdanovitch's Paper Moon, Milos Forman's Andy Kaufman biopic, Man on the Moon (starring Jim Carrey, Danny DeVito and Courtney Love) and Duncan Jones' debut feature, Moon (starring the now Academy Award winning Sam Rockwell).
