In the words of the great Peter Venkman, “Human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together… mass hysteria!” That roughly summarizes the thoughts rattling through my head as I watch the below video, in which Tara Reid declares that she’s got The Big Lebowski 2 coming up this year. I’ve watched it three times now. The words are real (around the 1:03 mark).
Obviously it must be a slip of the tongue, or more likely a Freudian Slip. Or possibly, as Spinoff managing editor Kevin Melrose suggested, a future version of Tara coming back to warn us of our horrific fate. Which seems perfectly logical, given the circumstances.
Let’s imagine for a moment that she’s actually breaking some news here. Joel and Ethan Coen are nothing if not unpredictable. No one who associates with them seems to think a sequel is ever going to happen. The brothers themselves even said it. Doesn’t mean a good way in hasn’t occurred to them. I’m not buying it though. But that doesn’t mean I can’t laugh about it.
