If any of you are up for a good movie I highly suggest seeing Into the Wild. It's based off a book by John Krakauer which is based on the journals of a young man who gave away his money after finishing college and started hitchhiking his way across America.
He eventually ended up in Alaska living in an abandoned school bus in the middle of the wilderness. He has some strikingly Dude-like qualities of not judging anyone and befriending everybody. There also happens to be an old hippy, Rainey, he runs into that I almost thought was Jeff Bridges for a split second when all we hear is the guy's voice coming from his brightly-painted RV. Rainey is definitely more Dude-like than Chris, the main character, but we don't get to see that much of him.
Oh, and I almost forgot to mention it takes place in the early 90's and there is a scene where we see the original Pres. Bush announcing that we're going to Iraq. Unfortunately we don't see the part of him saying, "This aggression will not stand."
If you have some free time on your hands and a few bucks to spare, you should definitely check to see if this movie's playing anywhere near you. If you'd like a bit more indepth review you can read one here .
