Critic Consensus: Charming, thoughtful, and often funny, Sideways is a decidedly mature road trip comedy full of excellent performances.
A wine tasting road trip to salute Jack's final days as a bachelor careens woefully sideways as he and Miles hit the gas en route to mid-life crises. The comically mismatched pair, who share little more than their history and a heady blend of failed potential and fading youth, soon find themselves drowning in wine and women. Emerging from a haze of pinot noir, wistful yearnings and trepidation about the future, the two inevitably collide with reality.

Critic Reviews for Sideways
Payne does know how to capture two kinds of male menopause. But I can't say he ever surprised me.
Sideways stays resolutely life-size. And that, in this age of hype and hyperventilation, may be the most radical thing about it.
Audience Reviews for Sideways
Giamatti's manic self-loathing is the films' greatest aspect, but Payne has written and directed a mature and humorous drama.
Engaging, well-paced, and ultimately satisfying, Sideways is an enjoyable, well-acted comedy that features tender moments, strong writing, and subtle humor.
|Miles Raymond:||Quaffable but far from transcending.|
|Jack Lapate:||See? rigth there... that's beautiful. A smudge of excrement... I could never write that.|
|Jack Lapate:||Youre a bad, bad, girl Stephanie.|
|Stephanie:||I know and I need to be spanked.|
|Miles Raymond:||It tastes like the back of a fucking L.A. school bus. Now they probably didn't de-stem, hoping for some semblance of concentration, crushed it up with leaves and mice, and then wound up with this rancid tar and turpentine bullshit. Fuckin' Raid.|
|Jack Lapate:||Tastes pretty good to me.|
