  1. Oh I just love the old guacamole man. He's pleased as punch about serving it to mr. snobby snob snob. I just want to give him chocolate and cookies and flowers and hugs.

  2. Yet again, a good film badly titled! Now 12 years old, but with 3 irresistible actors: Alan Rickman, Dennis Farina, and Chris Pine. Alan Rickman, who most recently passed, was one of the finest actors in film; Dennis Farina, who passed too soon (I should’ve looked it up), was an especially good comic actor with true charisma; and Chris Pine, who is young here— not to mention having the worst hair possible, throughout —is a now well-established actor who also has good comedic chops. Oh yes, Bill Pullman was also well cast, if less irresistible, pour moi!
    This movie was a genuine pleasure to watch, and I will do so again. I’d forgotten about the true story it’s based on, though do recall what a big deal it was, in the “Bicentennial” year of 1976; when I was busy with becoming a mother.The mid-seventies are realistically portrayed, without nostalgia, in a beautiful California setting now forever changed…Thankyou for the upload.

  3. Wish they still made movies this great love Alan Rickman he was always great in whatever he did I have been looking for this movie forever thanks so much greatly enjoyed

  4. Yes my parents took me and my brothers wine tasting back in the 70s through napa valley. Times have changed since then

  5. Entertaining, informative and fun. Having spent good part of my time there, brought the memories along witgthe music. Thanx
