Thursday in the Garden

It's Thursday which means--MOVIE day. I've actually picked on on wine. Sideways. How many of you have seen this flick? What did you think? Come on, I really do want to hear what you thought.

For those who have not seen it, you'll love it if you're into wine. And you'll never look at Merlot the same again!

Sideways
Genre--Comedy, drama, romance
Cast:
Paul Giamatti
Thomas Haden Church
Virginia Madsen
Sandra Oh -- I love her, I'm a huge Grey's Anatomy fan!

Blurb:

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.

Miles is a failed writer living a meager existence in San Diego as an English teacher. With his career seemingly fading and the fate of a book hinging on a publisher's decision, Miles is depressed with himself and what he hasn't achieved. Jack is a television actor whom some recognize but not many do, as if he were a minor actor who got a taste of success. With his best friend Miles, the two embark on a road trip through California's wine country. Miles wants to give his friend a nice sendoff before married life, while Jack simply wants to have a fling beforehand. As they're both nearing middle age with not much to show for it, the two will explore the vineyards while ultimately searching for their identities.

Don't be shy, please tell me what you think!

Don't forget the drawing for a Mug and $10 Starbucks GC. All you have to do is comment and/or follow the blog to get your name thrown into the hat.

I thought the movie a little slow for my taste. Miles acted like a wine snob which I thought funny in parts.
I am going to give the movie another chance though before deleting it from my DVR.

I've heard people either love it or hate it. You're the first to be in between.

Miles didn't act like a snob, he was a wine snob. And since I write and I'm a HUGE wine snob I liked Miles. LOL
