Pretty funny but I guessed I was too hyped up for it. That mixed with my current state of exhaustion made it hard to really laugh at anything. Walter, though, fucking great.

I need more movies like this, any recommendations?

Kiss Kiss Bang Bang
Zero Effect

Eh, in that they're sort of neo-noir/mystery comedies

And of course there's the other Coen brother comedies like Fargo, Burn After Reading, Barton Fink, Raising Arizona, etc., if you haven't seen them

OH

A Serious Man too. Seems like that one fell between the cracks, virtually no-one I know has even heard of it

I haven't seen The Big Lebowski, but I'll second the recommendation for Kiss Kiss Bang Bang. That movie fucking rocks.

Never seen The Big Lebowski? What the fuck is wrong with you?

And now that you have seen it, you're not questioning your faith and everything else you thought you ever knew because of how incredible it is? What the fuck ELSE is wrong with you?

As far as recommendations, there's nothing like it really so the only truly possible recommendation is just more Coen Brothers, like already mentioned. I like Kiss Kiss Bang Bang but I don't really see how it fits as a "If you like this you should also like..." But A Serious Man is fucking great. My favorite from 2009.

I finally saw it while I was in Washington. I liked it... but it felt a bit on the long side.

Dark comedies in LA, that involve (if I remember right) missing womans, with loser leads that get the shit beat out of them, crack the case with sudden epiphanies, and uh... other things? And awesome nudity

I mean, those are the closest movies I could come up with

A great movie, and there's nothing quite like it, but I agree that Kiss Kiss Bang Bang is about as close as you're going to get.

I can never really say, but sometimes I might actually like KKBB more.

8 year olds, man.

Walter was amazing but I agree that while watching it it felt like it dragged at parts. Walter is a quote machine and there were plenty of funny stuff everywhere else *giggles uncontrollably* but the "dream sequences" were unnecessary to me.
