'The Big Lebowski' (1998)
How does the Dude abide? "Oh, the usual. I bowl. I drive around. The occasional acid flashback." You definitely don't have to be baked to fall under the spell of this Pynchon-times-Marx Brothers classic, but Jeff Bridges turns the Dude into the ultimate hippie hero, a hairy, bathrobe-clad American legend. It's good knowing he's out there, still hating the Eagles and still blasting his Creedence tapes.
Stoniest moment: The Dude gets his car back from the cops and goes for a ride in the sun, a beer in one hand, a roach in the other, turning up the music and drumming on the roof of his car.
