There are some movies you watch over and over again until they become like comfort food. You're feeling lousy, you switch it on… Ahhhhh, feels like home. For many fans that movie is "The Big Lebowski," the Coen Bros. 1998 stoner-mystery-comedy which made very little initially at the box office and now boasts a very big cult following.
That following has spawned a decade-old Lebowski Fest, a Little Lebowski boutique in NYC's Greenwich Village, and millions of people who can recite every line in the film, from "Mark it 8, Dude" to "Come on, Dude, you're being very un-Dude." As amazingly rewatchable as "Lebowski" is, you could never actually live in the movie… until now.
According to LA Weekly, The Venice, CA bungalow where The Dude abided is now up for grabs, and it's no longer the type of place where people pee on the rug, man.
"It's a gorgeous little compound," says realtor Winston Cenac. "Some of the tenants are decorators, so on the inside, the units just look primo. It's just a lucky building that got featured and is now a nicer building as a result."
Of course, with all the upgrades since the film was shot the property value has risen, quite substantially, to $2.3 million for all 6 units. They just want the MONEY, Le-bow-ski!
As the piece states, Bulldog Realtors will be holding an open house at the property today from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and they've even invited The Dude himself, Jeff Bridges. White Russians will undoubtedly be served.
