Sideways

I watched the movie Sideways tonight and I really can’t decide how I feel about it. Pig Vomit was really good in it. And I did laugh at a few parts. But the acting by the rest of the cast felt stiff to me. I don’t understand what the hullabaloo was all about. Anyone who calls this a comedy is utterly goofy. This was a serious drama. All good drama has funny parts in it. In addition, the incessant talk about wine in the movie was pretty annoying. If Roadhouse was a movie about bouncers, Sideways was a movie about wine geeks. I personally find people like that irritating. I’m pretty sure the mis-direction I was given by the marketing people at Fox Searchlight is what ruined this movie for me.
