Movie Info

Rudy Kurniawan was, it was rumoured, a wine savant, had an expert memory for taste, a generous host, offering rare wines from his huge cellar, who in 2006 made 35 million dollars in two wine auctions from the sale of his wine. Then in 2008 a French wine producer, Laurent Ponsot, realised that wine from his family's domain was being sold from a year they hadn't produced it. That day, he says, he took the first plane to New York, and thus begun his crusade.

Larry David is a genius...what was he thinking?

There isn't really a big laugh in the bunch, but the comedy does manage to keep its balance, barely, thanks to an efficient pace and light disposition.

Audience Reviews for Sour Grapes


Seinfeld: The Movie... And it's pretty annoying. Horrible people in a very mundane situation of sharing a small jackpot. There's a reason this has been all but forgotten by the sands of time. That said, there's some great little moments in this that I still reference today.

Mr. Larry David, an idol & inspiration to me made this film in between Seinfeld & Curb your Enthusiasm. It's ok if you're into Larry's style of comedy, but the characters really hurt it. It's a lot easier to get laughs when you have Seinfeld, Richards, Dreyfus & Alexander on camera. Larry does make a couple appearances that are hilarious though, especially as the TV executive that's forced to fire the guy with a high pitched voice after he's castrated. "The problem is..... your voice. It's a bit high."

Larry David is the man. This movie is not indicative of his talent. There are some funny parts, situations that reek of Larry,but I really just didn't care and didn't laugh that much. As average a movie as you could ever have.
