starring Paul Giamatti and Thomas Haden Church

A great, “little” independent flick about two friends taking a weekend trip to California’s wine country. It’s not necessarily a gut-busting, over-the-top, laugh-fest, but I found it pretty hilarious nonetheless. It won’t be for everyone; there’s some pretention you might have to get over in order to enjoy it. It’s almost good enough to make you want to go on a weekend jaunt to wine country. Almost. “I don’t want the fucking Merlot!” indeed.
