Trivia

Director John Huddles told producer 'Dan Grodnik' they shouldn't shoot the film in March especially in the hills because of the severe rains that were forecast. Grodnik said he only had a small window of availability for Minnie Driver and had to schedule the film for that time. Grodnik went on to tell Huddles not to worry about a little rain. One rainy afternoon Grodnik got a call from his line producer saying the weather had become impossible to shoot in. Grodnik told him to continue anyway. The line producer said he would like to but the grip truck just washed away down a gully. See more »

I loved Nigel Hawthorne in the movie!
6 December 2001 | by (U.S.A) – See all my reviews

First of all I must admit that I am a great admirer of Rufus Sewell. That was the main reason I couldn't hardly contain myself when this was finally released in the U.S. as Uncorked. I would not however, be so biased as not to include Nigel Hawthorne in this comment.

The story was cute, I must say a little girlie, but definitely not like every other movie. Nigel Hawthorne as Uncle Cullen was probably my favorite part of the movie. His ability to be completely impossible to all the other characters, with out making him any less likable was amazing. Of course all the performances were great, his just really stood out.

My favorite part of the entire movie though, was within the first five minutes. It was an exchange between the characters Mr. Tan and Ross regarding a straw. It sounds a little strange, but that just cracked me the heck up.

Overall I would just like to say that the wait for it to come to the U.S. was totally worth it, and I would recommend it to anyone.
