Movie Review by Jesse
December 14th, 2006

The Best [Comedy] Movie of 2004

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 received nominations, as they should have, and Alexander Payne was nominated for Best Director. This film won the Best Adapted Screenplay Oscar (won by Alexander Payne and Jim Taylor) and finally broke the barriers for Comedies to go beyond stereotypes and win Oscars now. This film is incredible. The dramatic atmosphere, yet subtle comedy makes it so enjoyable. It is a touching movie that everyone should see. It's not boring, it's creative and artistic. I love it. Quite simply the best of 2004.
