Watching this film initiated my love for Paul Giamatti, the thinking man's hero. He plays an unpublished writer who suffers from serious depression and regrets about his failed marriage, and he does so with aplomb. He embarks on a road-trip with a former room mate, who is soon to marry, around the vineyards of California. His plans of relaxation, wine tasting and good clean fun are abruptly destro... read more

“Sideways” is one of those movies that seems to be made entirely for the scholarly and intellectual. The artsy, deep, hip and high-brow. Films about those people going through a turning point in their lives. Mid-life crisis’s and the like. And ones like this in paticular always seem to reap critical praise, a crowd of feverent fans and prestigious award... read more

A very good movie

Following his great perfomance in 'American Splendor', you can say that with this flick, Paul Giamatti really sealed the deal. From now on, he will be a major actor to reckon with. I'm not joking, this movie is that good. I also thought that Thomas Haden Church was quite amazing and together they were just a great duo. The story is nothing really mind-blowing but the whole thing is just very well ... read more

""This is one of the films that's kind of hard for me to explain why I like it. It just feels like I went on a really wild road trip. Our two characters, Jack and Miles, are both really intelligent and really stupid in their own way. We identify with Jack's constant lust for life but acknowledge he never thinks about the consequences and often gets into trouble. But we also identify with Miles whose more simple and cautious but allows few things to happen to him resulting in him slipping into a d"

"The ending in which hang-dog San Diego-based English teacher and aspiring writer Miles Raymond (Paul Giamatti) listened to a reconciliatory phone call on his answering machine from estranged Santa Ynez Valley wine country resident and love interest Maya (Virginia Madsen), telling him that she really enjoyed his book: ("...Who cares if it's not getting published? There's so many beautiful and painful things about it...Anyway, like I said, I really loved your novel. Don't give up, Miles. Keep writ"

"Sideways was a movie that came out of nowhere in 2004 to become a critically acclaimed hit thanks to word of mouth. It's an excellent comedy about two men reaching middle age with not much to show but disappointment, embark on a week long road trip through California's wine country, just as one is about to take a trip down the aisle. Paul Giamatti delivers a terrific central performance and Thomas Haden Church who was nominated for an Oscar for this role is fantastic. The story is funny, touchin"

10 Classic Unexpected Visitor Scenes (10 movies items)

"Miles Steals the Jack’s Wallet Back. It very well may be the best 5 minutes of the film. It's definitely the funniest. In Sideways Miles Raymond (Paul Giamatti) and Jack Cole (Thomas Haden Church) take a week-long trip to wine country. Although he is about to be married, Jack attempts to make the most of his last days of bachelorhood. Enter: The First Unexpected Visitor Scene. Jack comes to Miles in the middle of the night completely naked and informs him that he was with a waitress when her "

"Miles (Paul Giamatti) is a failed writer, struggling to survive as a bitter English teacher. As a pre-wedding gift to his long-time best friend Jack (Thomas Haden Church), Miles takes Jack on a week-long road trip through California’s wine country to celebrate Jack’s last week of singlehood. The two explore the vineyards where they ultimately search for their own identities... I know, I know. It sounds like a Yuppie’s dream movie, but it really pulls through as a great film.
