Compared to Sideways

Is it just me or is Sideways in some parts a scene by scene rip-off of Swingers for the older set? If you ask me it was outright plagiarism! Not that I did not enjoy Sideways. It was great, in fact. But mostly because of my perception of it, as indicated. A short list: Two friends, one a ladies' man, one a bit of a nerd. Road trip Drinking The nerdy guy is a self-defeatist who finally finds the right words with the right girl. Both nerdy guys are creative - one a comic, the other a writer. Neither is very good at what he does. Anybody see any other similarities? If this is it, hmmm. Maybe I'm just getting myself too riled up!

I haven't seen Sideways but now I really don't want to. I really enjoyed Swingers and it is a favorite of mine but if I've already seen it why would I want to watch it again with different actors? I like Vince Vaughn, John Favareau and Ron Livingston. I know I just messed up the spellings on all their names, but whatever. It's been done, why do it again?
