The God-Awful 'Little Fockers,' Triumphant 'True Grit,' and the Greatest Roles of Jeff Bridges' Career


"Do you really wanna see Little Fockers?" Peter Travers asks in this week's At the Movies video. "My fear is that you do." True Grit, he tells us, is what you need to see over the holidays instead. There are a lot of things to like about Grit — including star Jeff Bridges, who, Travers writes in his review, is "killer good at playing the hell out of double-tough Rooster." To honor Bridges and his latest remarkable role, Travers gives us a special treat this week: A ranking of the finest performances of Bridges' career. Where does The Big Lebowski's the Dude fall on that list? Read and find out!
