"The Big Lebowski" turns 17 on March 6. Joel and Ethan Coen's 1998 flick, complete with a cast of Oscar-winners and Hollywood A-listers, has become a cult classic despite flopping at the box office. In 2011, actress Tara Reid said a sequel was in the works. However, the Coen Brothers have since made it clear that they have no plans for a "Big Lebowski 2." Gramercy Pictures
