A study of friendship, disappointment and self-deception, Sideways, directed by Alexander Payne, has at its centre the most leisurely of bachelor parties: it's a road movie that stops off at vineyards.

Maya is a perfect fit for Madsen, smart, sexy, down-to-earth, vividly alive just beneath a placid surface.

...a leisurely paced film about introspection, neurosis and finding tranquility.

Sideways is non-mainstream pretentiousness done right

Sideways is a darkly comical and courageous journey of two ordinary middle-aged men whose only aspirations are to move forward in life.

A relentless and painfully funny critique of masculine pretense and selfishness, of which wine fetishism is the apotheosis.

Intelligent, funny and moving.

Maintains a deft balance between breezy joviality and understated poignancy.

Was "Sideways" worth the price of admission? Yes, but the overt sexual references make it hard for me to recommend it to anyone I might have to face later.

The underdevelopment of some characters can be attributed to an overriding decision to caricaturize the subjects of the film.

Payne and Taylor excel at getting underneath these tough exteriors and portray these people for what they are, warts and all.

Built upon its characters and would have been ordinary if it hadn't been for the excellent casting.

'La fortaleza del filme se encuentra en el enorme respeto que Payne muestra por sus personajes, as como en un estupendo elenco como el que pocas veces se puede juntar'

The movie has an abundance of high energy and good spirits and seldom takes itself too seriously....

This is more fun than most art films and should be a legitimate Oscar contender.

I really, really liked this movie, but I have to admit that I think it is a tad overrated.

Yo me servira otra copa y tratara de volver a disfrutar de los mismos sabores. Seguro que surgiran otras vetas que estaban esperando para sorprendernos.

As in Payne's other films, when the laughs die down there remains a residue of sadness, desolation and self-loathing, leaving the impression of something far more darkly insightful than your average light comedy.

Payne leva o espectador a se envolver com figuras que, em produes menos ambiciosas, seriam retratadas como seres desagradveis e repulsivos.
