Yes. No. Maybe-So.
As a whole the movie was well made. However, I never have been, am not, and never will be a fan of Jennifer Jason Leigh. I'll avoid ranting about her though, and instead turn to the good points of the movie. Co-written, co-produced, and co-directed with Alan Cumming, "The Anniversary Party" has very nice technical merit. The storyline as a whole is the only significant problem I have with the movie. It is (more or less) the events that take place during an anniversary party consisting of important people of the entertainment world. Of course this variation of people does lead to a get-together that deviates from what one would expect from the average party. Nevertheless, an anniversary party is still just that, meaning charades and sing-a-longs are only amusing for however long one can tolerate them. I wouldn't recommend this movie to those who watch a movie for the story aspect (as many do). Instead, I'd recommend it to those who can recognize the artistic potential non-blockbuster have to offer.
