Review: The Achievers: The Story of the Lebowski Fans
As I write in Variety: Although it feels overlong at 70 minutes, The Achievers: The Story of the Lebowski Fans remains too lightly entertaining to really overstay its welcome. Not unlike Roger Nygard's Trekkies (1999), which took a similarly nonjudgmental approach while gawking at Star Trek fanatics, helmer Eddie Chung's lightweight doc invites auds to laugh with, not at, eager participants at annual conventions devoted to Joel and Ethan Coen's The Big Lebowski, aptly described here as "the first cult film of the Internet Age."
