Of course, there's a reason why they don't make movies like this any more. However, luckily for all of us, "Rat Race" has more in common with "It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World" (upon which it is loosely based) than "Cannonball Run" and its ilk.

title: The Anniversary Party function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close(); studio: New Line Home Entertainment MPAA rating: R starring: Alan Cumming, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Gwyneth Paltrow, Kevin Kline, Phoebe Cates, Jane Adams, John C. Reilly, John Benjamin Hickey, Parker Posey, Denis O'Hare, Mina Badie, Jennifer Beals, Matt Malloy, Michael Panes release year: 2001 film rating: Three-and-a-Half Stars reviewed by: Tara O'Shea There is something voyeuristic about watching "The Anniversary Party", a drama starring and written and directed by Alan Cumming and Jennifer Jason Leigh. The duo cast the movie almost entirely with their friends and shot on location for almost three weeks in a glass house in the Hollywood Hills. While the story -- the sixth wedding anniversary party of actress Sally who has recently reunited with writer husband Joe -- is fiction, the performances and script are very raw and real. And there is a reason Joe and Sally live in a glass house. The party guests include each of the spouses' single best friends -- Sally runs to ...

The "Pie" films manages to accomplish what its peers strive for but all too seldom achieve, namely true comedic outrageousness. The "Pies" also generate some elements that other movies in the genre seem to go out of their way to avoid: an air of genuine warmth that translates into sincere compassion for all of the characters, a refusal to make females look stupid and/or like ...

Based on a book by Meg Cabot, the film tells of nerdy, unpopular but sweet San Francisco high school student Mia Thermopolis (Anne Hathaway), being raised by her single mom (Caroline Goodall) in bohemian warmth, who one day is summoned to meet the paternal grandmother she’s never met (Mom and Dad were divorced early and Dad died in a car accident before Mia could really know him). Grandma turns out to be Queen Clarisse of Genovia (Julie Andrews), whose only son was Mia’s father – which makes Mia heir to the throne of a whole country. ...

There was his uncle, see, playing golf with his best friend, Darryl F. Zanuck; Landis' uncle says, "I got this crazy nephew wants to get a job in the movies...." And soon Landis was working in the 20th Century-Fox mail room.
