The characters are played not by the first actors you would think of casting, but by actors who will prevent you from ever being able to imagine anyone else in their roles.

It's an intoxicating feeling when a movie excites and enlivens us like this -- and there's a particular giddiness to be had in thinking about what movies can (but don't often) do for one's soul after imbibing such a fine vintage.

Pure movie bliss.

Payne's little marvel.

This is a building-block movie: Its stand-out excellence becomes apparent only gradually.

Wall Street Journal
Sideways makes you glad about America, about movies, about life.

Philadelphia Inquirer
Exhilarating, edgy and wryly comic.

New York Daily News
The best comedy of 2004. In fact, it's so far the best movie of the year.

The Hollywood Reporter
Hysterically funny yet melancholy comedy.

Chicago Tribune
A boisterous, brilliant, heart-warming comedy--strikes me as just about perfect.

Miami Herald
What makes it the best movie of the year -- is its insight into human behavior.
