Lebowski Fest was started by two guys at a tattoo convention 10 years ago. They were bored and, as fans of the movie tend to do, started quoting their favorite lines and recapping their favorite scenes. The fest started out at a bowling alley in Louisville Kentucky, but now it travels the country, holding a bowling, costume contest, trivia contest one night; and a concert / showing of the film the next. This year’s NY Lebowski Fest was a little different. Since the second day coincided with the Blu Ray release of the movie, instead of a concert, there was a Q&A with the cast. The whole cast – well, not really. I mean, David Huddleston, Phillip Seymour Hoffman, and Tara Reid weren’t there. But John Goodman, Julianne Moore, Steve Buscemi, John Turturro, and the dude himself Jeff Bridges were all there. The guy who played Liam (Jesus’ bowling partner) was there, too, but he wasn’t part of the Q&A – he was just there to hang out. When he was pointed out in the crowd, he stood up, and totally did the belly shake thing he does in the movie. Uproarious applause, of course.
