Sideways

Wow. I spent the latter half of this movie trying to decide how the director was going to end it. I could only think of cheesy possibilities, so I prepared myself for the despair that would come when the wrap-up destroyed 2 hours of sympathy and laughter. The ending was grrrreat!

And it was the best movie I've seen in a while. The whole audience was roaring; I think this movie is a sleeper hit. All you need is a little sympathy for a drunk, a little tolerance for a man trying to get laid a few times before his wedding, and the good sense to listen to some interesting philosophy on grapes and wine from self-styled sommeliers.


I hated The Aviator. Don't steal from your mother.
