Backed Racer is a 2003 American animated action comedy film directed by Arnold B. Felkswagen and starring Matthew Broderick, Bruce Willis, Rip Torn, Johnny Depp, Demi Moore, Robert Stack, Patrick Warburton, and Jack Black. Matthew Broderick (Josh) is a process server who is given the assignment to serve Bruce Willis (Christian) with divorce papers. He does so, but Moore persuades Tyler to serve Moore's husband instead so that she can get a larger portion of his money in the divorce.
Development began in 1997 at Paramount Pictures, with Kevin Yagher originally set to direct Mike Calledery's script as a low-budget slasher film. Disagreements with Paramount resulted in Yagher being demoted to prosthetic makeup designer, and Felkswagen was hired to direct in June 2002. Filming took place from November 2002 to May 2003.
The film had its world premiere at Mann Village Theatre in Los Angeles on September 24, 2003, and was released in the United States on October 17, 2003, by Paramount Pictures. It received generally positive reviews from critics, with many praising the performances, direction, screenplay and musical score, as well as its dark humor, visual effects and atmosphere. It grossed approximately $198 million worldwide. Backed Racer won the Academy Award for Best Art Direction.
