I enjoyed this movie very much. Its was entertaining. Liked Alan Rickmans part alot. There was humor and history. Bad Language was very mild. Romance, no graffic scenes. Very enjoyable.

I thought it was great..saw it 2x. Can it be because my son was location scout for the movie? Some really hilarious behind the scenes.

Loved it! Didn't know too much about it before going in, but enjoyed it a lot. I thought all the males were great, Eliza Dushku was fun to watch, and the blonde actress (whose name I've blanked on) grew on me, but had some too-cutesy moments. I thoroughly enjoyed it, rooting for California wines the whole time.

Bottle Shock is unable to figure out what kind of movie it wants to be, and flops around between madcap comedy and rousing drama. To borrow a wine-snob term of art, it lacks structure. Full Review
It's the kind of feel-good movie whose resolution is evident from the start, being based as it is on a true story. But that doesn't make the journey any less interesting. Full Review
So why did I feel such affection for this scruffy, hokey little movie? Maybe it's the same logic that applies to wine-drinking itself: Sure, a great claret would be ideal, but an OK rosé is better than washing down your dinner with water. Full Review
Los Angeles Times
The soul of the grape, that thing that elevates a wine to greatness, proves here as elusive on screen as in the bottle. Full Review
