Comments: Outgrowing Payne

"Sideways" was a well acted film, it was amusing at times, and if you've ever known a wine or food snob, it is true to life.
As for your assessment of the "brilliant scene", talk to a wine lover and you'll see that its about as true as it gets, and Giamatti's character's awkward moments after Madsen's character's description of why she loves wines was true to his character's form.

I too agree that you need to be at a different stage in your life to truly appreciate this film, but I did feel it was well made and will probably age like a fine wine for those of us still too young to appreciate it.
