I’ve been meaning to say this for some time. Howard and I saw “Sideways” during our brief stayover in Anchorage during the move to Nuiqsut, and we both agree we haven’t seen a movie that funny since “Grumpier Old Men”. We were laughing so hard in the theatre, I was in tears. Thomas Haden Church plays a dumb but lovable, old roommate from college sidekick. And usually I don’t laugh at such characters but I did this time. I think my favorite scene from the movie is Paul Giamatti’s character vehemently telling Thomas’s character “If they open up a bottle of Merlot, I’m outta here, I am NOT DRINKING FUCKING MERLOT!” You have to see the movie to understand and I know the people who have seen it will agree with me.
