In this intoxicating, intelligent comedy, director Alexander Payne (Election, About Schmidt) serves up "one of the best movies of the year" (Entertainment Weekly) about the ups, downs and sideways journeys of life. A wine-tasting road trip through California's famed Central Coast takes an unexpected detour as Miles (Paul Giamatti) and Jack (Thomas Haden Church) hit the gas en route to their mid-life crisis. The comically mismatched pair soon find themselves drowning in wine, women... and laughter!

I found the movie to be very funny and it had a great story along with some very memorable characters.
Payne has an eye for nuance and subtlety, which makes his film- essentially a character study- a succinct examination of the human condition.
And oh my gosh, this movie was so void of any character I am just going to end this review now, cause I just don't care enough...
Movie after my own heart... Seen it several times, just wanted to own a copy for myself (because I'm one of "those people").Published 8 days ago by Julie
I love this story about really shallow,despicable winos. Almost as good as Dirty, Rotten Scoundrels. I've been to winerys on the coast of Calif. but was much better behaved.Published 9 days ago by diane g wood

This is a beautiful movie. It has a lovely rhythm to it, and the friendships make you wish you were there. It's at once funny and painful. Read morePublished 19 days ago by Amazon Customer
