I watched Sideways the other night, and was left wondering, “why the hell did so many people recommend this movie to me?”

Snotty pretentious ninny bitch loser guy whose method of dealing with bad news is to pound a gallon of wine hangs out with dumbass prodigal son that can’t keep his dick in his pants.

My theory on why people liked it is because the plot revolves loosely around wine, which for most people is an intimidating subject. Having some basic concepts explained in the first thirty minutes (before we start hating the characters) makes them predisposed towards liking a guy who is perceived as knowledgable about the subject and they start rooting for him, rather than being annoyed with how much of a wanker he is and wishing he would choke on his own vomit.
