Similarities between A Clockwork Orange (1971) and The Big Lebowski (1998)

Both of the main characters are iconic for drinking beverages that contain milk and alcohol, as well as constantly getting high. 

They both have an overweight friend, as well as a friend who works as a foil for the way they go about life. 

They also have a friend who seems to be out of sync with the rest of the group, and ultimately serves little significance to the overall plot. He’s just kind of… there. 

Established rival who has just about no impact on the story whatsoever. 

Iconic bar scene

Characters are fond of the old In-and-out 

Both of the main characters are nearly drowned to death

Woman obsessed with sexual art

Phallic drawings 

Humorous bath tub scene where something goes horribly wrong.

Both films are dark comedies. 

An antagonist, crippled to a wheelchair, who aims to exploit the main character for his own gain. 

Both films discuss what it truly means to be a man. 

One iteration of this trope has it that Steve Buscemi’s Donny from The Big Lebowski was really a ghost that fought alongside John Goodman’s character, Walter, in Vietnam.

If this theory contributed anything worthwhile or showed us a different way of looking at Walter, maybe we’d be willing to try and overlook the fact that multiple people interact with Donny in the movie. Unlike Cameron, however, Walter is far from self-loathing. Unlike the narrator from Fight Club, he is anything but repressed. The biggest problem with the “Tyler Durden” is the fact that it’s often shoved into a story with little thought as to the circumstances. Before you can add in a proper Tyler Durden, the character has to need a Tyler Durden.

The theory has been plugged into everything from Garfield to Rugrats and even back into Fight Club, which is about as arbitrary as theorizing that Tom Hanks was simply imagining Wilson the whole time.
