Rating:
Alexander Payne's Sideways arrives on DVD with a commentary track recorded by lead actors Paul Giamatti and Thomas Haden Church that goes a long way toward revealing why the film works so well. The two have a genuine rapport with each other. While their comments do not add to anyone's understanding of the film, it is a light and breezy conversation full of self-effacing jibes and warm laughs. The film itself is presented in a widescreen transfer that preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of 1.85:1. The English soundtrack is rendered in Dolby Digital 5.1, while Spanish and French soundtracks have been recorded in Dolby Digital Surround. Deleted scenes, a making-of-featurette, and the film's theatrical trailer round out his solid release from 20th Century Fox.

    Synopsis


    Sideways
    Directed by Alexander Payne, Sideways follows Miles (Paul Giamatti), who is distressed about his lack of success as a novelist, and Jack (Thomas Haden Church), an equally unsuccessful actor with a rapidly approaching wedding. In a last-ditch effort to sow their wild oats, Jack and Miles take off on a final road trip to California's wine country the week prior to Jack's wedding. Both men have goals for the vacation -- Miles wants to turn Jack on to the art of wine tasting, while Jack is concerned with exploiting his last days as a bachelor -- but when the two men come across two fascinating women (Virginia Madsen and Sandra Oh), the duo is forced to examine their morality, and if maturity isn't such a depressing prospect -- at least, for one of them. ~ Tracie Cooper, Rovi
