    Saw it the other night. Decent movie, but I did not think it was worth all the hype. What did everyone else think?

    It wasn't a rolling in the aisle funny, but it was a freaking smart funny.

    A critic described it as American Pie for 40 year olds. I think that's fairly correct. I didn't think the movie was that great. I don't think Sandra Oh is hot at all, and even though I like Paul Giamatti, I thought his character was annoying. He did a great job of acting though.

    My dad described it as Napolean Dynomite for the older crowd

    The humor was there if you were older, but the story and the way it was shot / told was incredibly deep and rich and full of details, and that's what made it not good, but great.

    meh. I could take it or leave it.

    I've always been partial to Virginia Madsen, though. Nice to see her doing work again.

    Exactly how I feel. It's an ok movie, but to really enjoy it you have to be in that age group. I think all they hype was coming from middle aged men to begin with.

    I thought it was a pretty decent movie, entertaining at the least and Paul Giamatti did a good job as well as the other guy (forget his name). It had some pretty funy moments, I guess 'cute' was pretty much how I would sum it up in 1 word.
     
  14. I'm 18 and know shit about wine, but I loved it. It's certainly not for everything though.

    i've tried to watch it twice now, i get to the point where he's trying to kiss the waitress and i'm like, why am i watching this?

    please tell me it has a huge change of story and gets much better if i keep watching.

    I liked it, but I didn't think it was Oscar worthy.
    But most of the candidates this year weren't oscar worthy.

    I thought it was clever and enjoyed it, but from the hype thought it would be better.

    I agree, hype was to big. There were some good scenes though. I liked it better after watching it a second time.

    Did you hear about how the sale of Pinot increased after Sideways and Merlot suffered? Funny how easily we're swayed...
