I had heard there was some big indictment in the film Sideways against Merlot. That it was hip to hate now. So I finally saw the movie on a plane last week. The only bit about Merlot was when Paul Giamatti’s character was standing outside the restaurant before they had their first dinner with the two women, where he got really drunk and dialed. Something like “If they’re drinking Merlot, I’m out of there.”
Was that really it? Or did they cut out a big chunk like I suspect?
