The Coen brothers are also known as the chameleons of the film industry because they have filmed movies from varied types of genres. The uniqueness of their movies can be owed to their distinct direction and especially the lameness and absurdity in the films. Their comedy always works, with dialogues and scenes never at the wrong place or at the wrong time, and always ensures tickling up to one’s stomach.

The Big Lebowski was a great cultural hit by the Coen brothers where their storytelling skills make kidnapping by a Russian gang mafia a fun ride. This 1998 movie flopped at the box office when it was released, however, it was later seen as one of the classic cults from the 90s. The comic is added by the witty dialogues of Dude, the protagonist, and his two friends, and the inability of the Russians to complete a sentence without shouting.
