Two middle-aged men go on a tour of wine country before one of them gets married. The humor is subtle and dry and real. The performances are very good-though I think the hype for Madsen is too much. I liked Sandra Oh's performance a lot better. Giammatti (though I found him affected at first) was amazing as always, but the one who really rocked my socks was Thomas Hayden Church.

Another note-I love the set dec in Payne's films. The houses look like real houses. The cars look like real cars. The extras look like real people. So few movies feature places that look really lived in. ( )
