Bottle Shock, the movie about the Judgement of Paris Tasting in 1976, has drawn mixed reviews after its premier at the Sundance Film Festival. It was one of the hottest tickets going and has been billed as the next Sideways. The film has been surrounded in controversy as it pipped its rival to the post. Bottle Shock's producers were threatened with court action by the rival film makers and their script has only just been completed as it was held up by the Hollywood screen writers strike.
Bottle Shock stars Alan Rickman (Harry Potter), Bill Pullman (Independence Day), Rachael Taylor (Transformers), Elisha Dushku (Buffy the Vampire Slayer), Freddy Rodriguez (Ugly Betty) Chris Pine (Smokin' Aces), Dennis Farina (Snatch), Miguel Sandoval (ER) and Bradley Whitford (West Wing). So far the main complaint has been that the film doesn't centre enough on the wine and the tasting but focuses more on a love affair and family feuds.
