There is an entertaining scene in Kingsman: The Secret Service where the gentleman spy Harry Hart has dinner with Valentine, the villain. Valentine surprises him by serving a dinner that is McDonalds takeout food.
Valentine offers wine with the McDonalds food, and I don't know anything about wine so I'm wondering what the wine choice added to the conversation.
If you accept the premise of pairing wine with take-out hamburgers, did the wine choice make sense? Was the joke that the wine was particularly good and expensive? Alternatively, was the joke that the wine was a bad choice, showing Valentine doesn't know how to choose wines?
I think that scene shows that Valentine just likes to do whatever he wants, and since he likes McDonalds, he'll serve that. Harry Hart, meanwhile, shows splendid aplomb; he doesn't bat an eye at the odd dinner, and doesn't hesitate to ask for a Big Mac.
Harry Hart suggests that for dessert they could have (if I recall correctly) cotton candy plus another wine. Again, I'm wondering what the wine choice would imply. Was it a "dry" wine that would pair well with a sweet dessert? Again, was the wine expensive/a good choice, or a hilariously inappropriate choice meant as a troll?
P.S. At the very beginning of the movie there is much to-do about some amazing whiskey. I'm wondering if that was a real whiskey that really is amazing or if they just made something up as a joke.
If I were making a movie, since I don't know anything about wine really all the wine names would be jokes. Like, with dinner they would have had the '59 Pinot Grand Fenwick.
