GET A JOB SIR
so...why did they piss on his rug again? Why did she cut off her toe? what exactly was his plan for the dude to do?
I don't know dude just turn you're brain off
They pissed on his rug because they were upset they went to the wrong house and since they were there to intimidate Lebowski they might as well intimidate any Lebowski
She cut off her toe to provide as evidence that she had been kidnapped and that the kidnappers still had her
His plan was for the dude to get out of his office
but I thought lebowski hired those swedes
I believe his wife kidnapped herself in order to get more money from her husband
The issue came from the fact that her husband was not very wealthy and got most of his money from his feminist ex-wife
This is where the irony of him telling the Dude to ‘get a job’ comes from
It’s a funny movie, you see?
>I believe his wife kidnapped herself in order to get more money from her husband
Bunny just runs off to party on her own. The Nihilist is friends with her and knows this, so decides to concocut a scheme to fake a kidnapping to get money from The Big Lebowski because they think he's rich. He's not. Then the Big Lebowski decides to create a scenario where he can embezzle money plausibly and blame it on The Dude or the Nihilists.
Basically everyone except Bunny and The Dude is trying to scam someone. It plays off the theme of Noir where Los Angeles is a place of corruption. No one is solid.
no they were germans I think and they knew the big lebowski's wife from logjammin' and they came up with the kidnapping thing on their own
They pissed on his rug because they were assholes. They broke into his house in the first place because they thought he was the big Lebowski (pictured in the OP) since the Dude and the big Lebowski have the same name (Jeffrey Lebowski), but the rug-pissing happened after they realized he was the wrong guy. They wanted to rough up the big Lebowski because Bunny (his wife) owed their boss money.
The German girl cut off her toe to legitimize the scam they were running for the big Lebowski to make it seem like Bunny had been kidnapped, when in reality she was just off on a bender.
The big Lebowski was going to pay the fake ransom to Bunny's fake kidnappers with money from his charity and then pocket it for himself, because he was cash poor despite appearing wealthy. He was using the Dude as the courier, the middle man between him and the fake kidnappers. I don't really know why, maybe to legitimize the whole scam even more.
Possibly the Big Lebowski was hoping the Germans would kill the Dude too in the exchange maybe?
>He was using the Dude as the courier, the middle man between him and the fake kidnappers. I don't really know why, maybe to legitimize the whole scam even more.
He was going to pin the stolen money on the Dude.
but didn't the big Lebowski orchestrate the fake kidnapping? weren't the Germans working for him to begin with and the plan was always to pocket the money and pay the Germans with part of it?
Nope, she had just pissed off without telling anyone and her friends thought they could stage a kidnapping. The kidnapping just gave him a cover to steal $1 million from his charity.
so the big Lebowski actually thought Bunny had been kidnapped? I don't know about that. it's been a while since I watched it but I always had the impression that he orchestrated the fake kidnapping
>so the big Lebowski actually thought Bunny had been kidnapped?
Yes and he didn't give a fuck. It gave him the opportunity to be rid of his wife that was a pain in the ass and he had a chance to embezzle a million dollars from his charity. Why would Lebowski hire those guys to organise a kidnapping? On what pretense would he be telling them he'd be giving them a million dollars which would be split? Why would he need to if he had money? What would he stand to gain? They just didn't know he wasn't actually rich, knew Bunny was out of town and took a chance to get a million dollars from him before she got back. Remember how surprised they are when The Dude knows they never had Bunny? They didn't even know she'd arrived back home. There was no kidnapping at all, orchestrated or not. A bunch of deadbeats just thought they had a shot at a million dollars because a slut was about to leave town for a few weeks and they thought they could send a letter to her supposedly rich husband and get a million dollars.
>Why would Lebowski hire those guys to organise a kidnapping?
so he has an excuse to pay a fake ransom and then split the money with the fake kidnappers he hired. but after your explanation it's starting to come back to me, I remember now a scene where the Dude chews out the big Lebowski for being glad when he thought Bunny had been kidnapped
>so he has an excuse to pay a fake ransom and then split the money with the fake kidnappers he hired.
As Buscemi says in Fargo, "It's like robbing Peter to pay Paul. It doesn't make any sense." No one is ever going to stage a kidnapping where they'll be the ones paying the ransom.
>I remember now a scene where the Dude chews out the big Lebowski for being glad when he thought Bunny had been kidnapped
Exactly, he didn't care. Or possibly thought it was Bunny herself staging the kidnapping to get the money. Either way he was free of his wife and had the pretext to take a million dollars from the charity and the Dude was his patsy to blame it on when the money went missing.
where is your mind when you watch movies? do you look at the screen? is any information disseminated or absorbed at all???
you're using that word incorrectly, indicating that you don't actually know what it means. I'll answer your question by restating what I said initially: it's been a while since I watched it, which means that my memory of the plot may be inaccurate. but congratulations on coming across as a pseudo-intellectual cunt
should've just called him a pseud, adding cunt reveals you got angry. The dude spells out everything very clearly in the end when he confronts the big lebowski
>e was using the Dude as the courier, the middle man between him and the fake kidnappers. I don't really know why, maybe to legitimize the whole scam even more.
Because there never was any money for the drop. He has two parties to blame for taking the money should anyone ask. He pockets a million and the only people that can say there never was any money is the alleged kidnappers and a stoner layabout. Anyone is just going to assume one of them stole the money.
Thr entire movie was a dream
I prefer to maintain soft power.
Hey, I'm a firm believer in the philosophy of a ruling class. Especially since I rule.
This dude played Jake Green's grandfather in the short-lived 2006 CBS television series Jericho.
he was frank's old business partner on it's always sunny. he stole his countach

>I believe his wife kidnapped herself in order to get more money from her husband
No, she just fucked off to Vegas without telling him. Her Nihilists porn friends knew she was going so came up with the kidnapping scheme knowing she'd be gone for a while. They cut off their female friend's toe as they thought they had Lebowski on the hook and were desperate to get the cash.
>Her Nihilists porn friends knew she was going so came up with the kidnapping scheme knowing she'd be gone for a while.
I thought the big Lebowski came up with the fake kidnapping and the Germans were working for him so they could all split the money?
No, the Germans cooked it up on their own. Lebowski just used it as an opportunity for embezzlement.
Wasn't it ironic, because he himself was a leech on society, but was preaching to The Dude about getting a job?
Yes. He's a leech lecturing another leech because he has the image of prosperity and hard work. As Maude reveals that facade is all bullshit.
No pussy, No work
To be fair if I asked someone to pay me back for something that I lost that they owed me like a broken window on my car or house my employment status wouldn’t be any of their business regardless.
what i want to know is where's the caveman
