"The Dude" Lebowski, mistaken for a millionaire Lebowski, seeks restitution for his ruined rug and enlists his bowling buddies to help get it.
The shot of Da Fino parked in his VW Beetle, seen in the Dude's rear view mirror, is almost identical to the shot of the private investigator's car in the Coen Brother's first film, Blood Simple. (1984).

Jesus is shown having to notify his neighbors that he is a sex offender. While California has had a sex offenders registry since 1947, it did not have a "Megan's Law," allowing community notification, until 1996, well after this movie is set. Furthermore, it is law enforcement, not the offender, who notifies that community.
