Bottoms Up! Say "Cheers" to Our 10 Favorite Movie Drunks

10. Paul Giamatti as Miles Raymond in Sideways (2004)

Miles is a middle-aged unpublished writer, divorcé and middle school English teacher who, on the side, dabbles in wine as something of an aficionado. As his life continues to stray from its path, sometimes the vino becomes a little more than a hobby. With the help of his less scrupulous pal Jack (Thomas Haden Church), Miles goes off the rails in Santa Barbara, including a lowly moment where he gets tired of tasting 2 oz. pours and downs and entire spittoon of discarded fermentation.

Slurred Words of Wisdom: "Half my life is over and I have nothing to show for it. Nothing. I'm thumbprint on the window of a skyscraper. I'm a smudge of excrement on a tissue surging out to sea with a million tons of raw sewage."
