Miles has planned an excursion filled with wine tastings, golf and good food, but his pal has other ideas. Jack's real goal is to have a tryst before he's married at the end of the week.

Miles isn't the best partner for such prospecting - he's depressed over a recent divorce and apprehensive about an impending book deal that has yet to be finalized. For him, the wine glass is half empty. At one point, Jack pulls him aside and gives him a pep talk, telling him,

"Do not drink too much. Do you hear me? I don't want you passing out or
going to the dark side. No going to the dark side!"

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Does "No going to the dark side!" mean anything?

The Dark Side of Personality is used to depict personality disorder often occurs with depression.

You got that right in the post. The underline meaning is: don't go overboard and become an alcoholic or a drug addict. Those are some of the dark sides of  human living.
