Stardate 60075.03 - Amazon Software Oddity

I got another odd e-mail from Amazon:

Dear Customer,
We've noticed that customers who have purchased Sideways (Widescreen Edition) also purchased Blood and Wine on DVD. For this reason, you might like to know that Blood and Wine will be released on February 7, 2006 on DVD. You can pre-order yours at a savings of 25% by following the link below. that because of the wine theme? Not sure that Sideways and Blood and Wine are similar in any other way. That's like saying that if you watched Clerks you would like The Sopranos because they both took place in NJ.

Blood and Wine is described as :
Bob Rafelson has stated that this is the final part of an informal trilogy he started with "Five Easy Pieces" and continued with "The King Of Marvin Gardens". In the three, Nicholson has now played son, brother and father. In this one, Nicholson is a wealthy wine dealer who has distanced himself from his wife with his philandering and from his son with his negligence. After he steals a diamond necklace with the help of a safecracker partner, Victor, things start coming apart. His wife sets out to interrupt what she thinks is another one of his weekend dalliances, but is really his trip to pawn the jewels.

I don't think that is like Sideways at all:

Miles is a failed writer living a meager existence in San Diego as an English teacher. With his career seemingly fading and the fate of a book hinging on a publisher's decision, Miles is depressed with himself and what he hasn't achieved. Jack is a television actor whom some recognize but not many do, as if he were a minor actor who got a taste of success. With his best friend Miles, the two embark on a road trip through California's wine country. Miles wants to give his friend a nice sendoff before married life, while Jack simply wants to have a fling beforehand. As they're both nearing middle age with not much to show for it, the two will explore the vineyards while ultimately searching for their identities.
