I watched Sideways last night, excellent movie. Great actors, I really like Paul Giamatti, he did a great job in this and in American Splendor.

In this movie he plays a Miles, a wine loving, middle school English teacher with aspirations of being a published writer. He's divorced, depressed, and having a mid-life crisis. His friend Jack, an actor who mostly does commercials now, is getting married in a week. Miles takes him on a tour of wine country as a gift, and here the trouble ensues. Over sexed Jack wants to have an affair, while Miles just wants to sit with a bottle of Pinot and be moody. Miles falls in love, Jack has his nose broken for saying he's in love. Damn it's a great movie.
