Bittersweet comedy about a depressed novelist and wine aficionado (Paul Giamatti), who, in lieu of a bachelor party, treats his womanizing, though soon-to-be-married, best friend (Thomas Haden Church) to a last-hurrah tour of Northern California wineries that becomes a midlife journey of self-discovery. Based on a novel by Rex Pickett, director Alexander Payne's odd-couple road movie serves as a poignant meditation on love, loneliness, fellowship and failed ambition, but is unfortunately stained by some graphic scenes. Several explicit sexual encounters, including one scene with full frontal nudity, a few implied sexual encounters, brief drug content, and much rough and crude language and humor. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is L -- limited adult audience, films whose problematic content many adults would find troubling. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is R -- restricted.
