If digital looks like this and makes it possible for such funny and intimate chamber pieces to come into existence, then bring on the digital movies.

This film is monumentally annoying.

With witty ripostes and beautiful people, there's reason enough to stay for this Party.

Kim Morgan

For all its superfluous and self-conscious moments, the picture is a draining kick.

Never less than entertaining and often much, much more.

A textbook example of why actors sometimes should just act.

A cool and intelligent look at a lifestyle where smart people are required to lead their lives according to dumb rules.

Isn't what you'd call a probing film, but it's a slick and savvy one.

June 22, 2001
Steve Schneider
Orlando Weekly

The Anniversary Party's tone wanders from overly affectionate softball to overripe gravitas, and its dialogue is often painfully amateurish.

Has a loose, improvisatory feel that rings true.

Gary Thompson
Philadelphia Daily News

Slips into a series of histrionic outbursts and contrived situations.

June 21, 2001
Chris Hewitt (St. Paul)
St. Paul Pioneer Press

An actory movie, with performers gorging on the kind of histrionics an experienced director would put a lid on.

Contra Costa Times

Instructive about both relationships and American aspirations to elitism.

One Guy's Opinion

At times it's like watching a series of acting exercises as the camera discreetly moves from star to star to afford each a chance momentarily to shine.
