Sideways Movie Review by Seth (11/2/2004)

A nice performance by Paul Giamatti, though he's going to need to start branching out from the role of the loveable loser. Yes, he has a sad face, we get it. Nevertheless, he's damn good at the role.

"Lowell" from "Wings" did a good job, though was a fairly one-dimensional character, as were the two ladies in the film....

I finally got around to watching this movie. I'd meant to watch it many times, considering that where it was filmed is the heart of where I grew up. Giamatti's mother living in Oxnard was the kicker.

Sideways Movie Review by Jesse (12/14/2006)

Sideways can be easily considered the best movie of the year. If it wasn't for Million Dollar Baby, this film should have easily grabbed Best Picture. Paul Giamatti was robbed of an Oscar nomination and that will forever go down in Oscar history as one of the worst snubs. Thomas Haden Church and Virginia Madsen both...
