There's a new low budget movie out in North America called "Sideways" about two guys going on a wine tasting tour in northern California for the guys last bachelor weekend before getting married. It's a surprisingly great movie with alot of good insights into the lives of middle aged men and women. There's some terrific emotional scenes but the best part is about 20 minutes in at their first wine tasting. So the one guy is a total wine conasor trying to teach the other (who is your typical beer and potatos kinda guy) how to taste a wine. The whole exchange is hilarious, and I don't want to give away the punchline, so instead I'll post one of the wine tasters side comments when he's asked how he likes the wine:

Beer Guy: "So how'd you like this one Miles?"

Wine Guy Miles: "Usually they start you on wines with learning disabilities, but this one is pretty damn good."

Obviously I can't do it justice, but trust me that's hilarious!

Anyways, if you're into a casual movie heavily focused on character development that tells a great story with a splash of humour, you can't go wrong with "Sideways". I give it a "good enough to pay 10 bucks at the theatre" on my 3 point rating scale (worth going to theatre, rental only, do not watch).

Good job.
