@ Chik Mag P: We're definitely in talks with an Aubrey Plaza impersonator and a Bobby Moynihan look-alike...

I'm partial to Orson Welles's Touch of Evil. Big Lebowski was so weird. I realized midway through that the mystery plot was irrelevant, which further undermined by interest in the characters, who were getting on my nerves by then anyway. Nevertheless, John Goodman beating the shit out of that car with a crowbar was priceless without the dialogue, made even more beautiful WITH the dialogue.
