Do you think that the critical praise and/or backlash directed at the movie "Sideways" is related to the main character's resemblance to the stereotypical personality profile of a film critic?

Yes, it's obvious that everyone who likes any film likes it because they identify with the main character.

Yes, but even more of a factor is that backlash is always good for publicity.
