Is there any difference between sideways and to the side? For example:

Stop leaning sideways/to the side!

The car in front of us suddenly moved sideways/to the side.

I feel that in the examples above sideways and to the side are interchangeble, I am not sure though. Could you give some examples where only one of the phrases is possible?
