** Whether or not is Dude a good example to follow. Depending on who you ask, he's either a lazy, pathetic underachiever, or a calm, reliable person who found true happiness in simple everyday pleasures (latter interpretation laid the foundation for [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dudeism "dudeism"]] philosophy).

** Music/CaptainBeefheart’s “Her Eyes Are a Blue Million Miles”, Music/BobDylan’s “The Man in Me”, Music/TownesVanZandt’s cover of “[[Music/StickyFingers Dead Flowers]]”... really a fantastic soundtrack all around.

* TrueArtIsIncomprehensible: Arguably the reason the film wasn’t initially a hit is how little sense its plot makes. Of course, this was deliberate on the Coen Brothers’ part.

Added DiffLines:

* ChaoticNeutral: Walter Sobchak. He probably thinks of himself as being LawfulGood, given his famous "AM I THE ONLY ONE WHO GIVES A SHIT ABOUT THE RULES?!" rant... but it's somewhat undermined by the fact that [[HypocriticalHumour he says this while holding a guy at gunpoint in the middle of a bowling alley]] [[DisproportionateRetribution because he tried to mark the score of the game wrong]]. Walter is also heavily implied to have some kind of criminal background, given his comment to the Dude that "I could get you a toe by 3:00 this afternoon". In general, a hot-headed, temperamental asshole, but he really is trying to help the Dude out of the goodness of his heart, still genuinely loves his ex-wife Cynthia, and shows near the end that, despite what it may seem, he really does care about Donny.

* NeutralGood: The Dude, whenever he gets the motivation to do anything. He's way too laid back to want to enforce or tear down society's laws.

** Walter really wasn't in Nam. [[PhonyVeteran He made the whole thing up]] to add to his tough guy image.
