Critical Rating: AAAAA
When some horny thugs almost drown Jeffrey Lebowski in his own toilet and leave some splooge on his new VHS porn tapes (the tapes that really tied his porn collection together), it sets off a sexy and funny chain of events. You will absolutely get to see coitus, in and out, the physical act of love, fuckin' A, and some orgasm-achieving from one of the Biggest Lebowskis you have ever seen!
When the trailer for Lee Roy Myers' spin on the Coen brothers' most beloved film hit the interweb, a definite surge of excitement rippled through the porn community. This appeared as though it was going to be something different ... a "game-changer," some said. Well, we're happy to report that the finished product lives up to those expectations.
There are a lot of reasons this may well be the single greatest parody to ever come out of Porn Valley, not the least of which being Myers' jaw-dropping re-conjuring of the look, feel and tone of the original, down to the tiniest details. But his skill at that is already well established by way of his many other exemplary New Sensations parodies, so it comes as no particular surprise that he pulled it off so masterfully here. What does separate this from his previous efforts, however, is that it functions much more as an actual parody of the source, even if a very reverent one, rather than a mere replication with a few pornified elements.
This is an abridged version of The Big Lebowski, covering just the major plot points (but don't worry—as The Stranger, played by Evan Stone, comments in his epilogue to the camera, "I guess that's why God made sequels"). In short, The Dude (Tom Byron) goes to his rich namesake (Roy Karch) to request that he replace the prized porno tapes ejaculated upon by the henchmen to whom the older Lebowski's wife, Bunny (Briana Blair), owes money. Hilarity—and a whole lot of sex—ensues.
Several of the scenes are natural expansions of those in the real Lebowski: When Bunny offers to blow The Dude for $1,000 (or "a hundred extra if Brandt wants to watch"), he happily cuts her a check and commences with feeding her his schlong; we get to see the entire cable guy scene from Logjammin' with Bunny, London Keyes in place of Asia Carrera and Steve Holmes as Karl Hungus; and, of course, the lovemaking session between The Dude and Maude (Kimberly Kane) actually occurs onscreen.
There's also a top-notch anal scene with "certified sodomizer" Jesus (James Deen) and Carla Cox; a three-way, depicted as an excerpt from one of The Dude's porno tapes, between Kristina Rose, George Bush (Rocco Reed) and Saddam Hussein (Anthony Rosano); and a blowout five-girl orgy incorporated into The Dude's psychedelic dream sequence (there's only one here) with Maude, Andy San Dimas, Celeste Star, Ashley Grace and Jackie Daniels.
And we haven't even touched on the acting yet. It's truly exceptional across the board, but Tom Byron simply dazzles as The Dude—in this critic's opinion, Byron has taken reign of late as the very best actor in the business, and this part is the feather in the cap of his very long and very distinguished career. Every bit as stellar, meanwhile, are non-sex actors Peter O'Tool as Walter and Karch as the Big Lebowski, as well as Kane in the Maude role.
In the overwhelming clutter of porn parodies, this one rises above the fray, a likely candidate to become as much a classic in the pantheon of adult as its Hollywood forebear already is in that arena.
