4.0 out of 5 stars Good film, 7 Sept. 2010
By 
This review is from: Bottle Shock [DVD] [2008] (DVD)
Simply put a good film. It's not a lost classic or a Citizen Kane, it's just an enjoyable film with a good cast. Alan Rickman as ever is superb, funny, dry and it's a film I've watched and enjoyed a couple of times...I've just this minute watched it a 3rd time on TV. It's not going to tax your brain or leave you guessing, just a good way to spend some time, and surely that's what films should be.
One reviewer suggests you'd get more out of it if you were a patriotic American, I disagree strongly, there's no message like that throughout the film, it's about the coming of age and acceptance of the wine making industry in the U.S. - It's a historic statement the wine tasting of 1976 ... this isn't Indepenence Day, it's not done in a flag waving yehaww here come the Yanks to save the world...of wine, it's gentle humerous film that runs at a gentle pace. At the time that 1976 wine tasting opened the worlds eyes that there is more than French wine, which to me has always been the lesser of all the wines be they from Chile, California, Spain or Italy. But I'm not a wine expert, I just know what I like, and I'm not a film expert either.
Good, enjoyable, fun film with a decent story.
