Full-blown 'Jack'--his face a spectacular special effect of full-blown energy--remains an irresistible act. [Blu-Ray]

Unless you're 15 at heart, you may need anger management yourself after sitting through this aggressively crass comedy, which alternates between mean-spirited slapstick and arbitrary uplift.

Do we really need a fable about corporate guys getting in touch with their inner brats?

No, it doesn't make much sense, and yes, it's irredeemably phallocentric -- but that is, perhaps, its saving grace.

The only thing you can't get angry at are the adorable animal actors.

[It's] like going to the NBA All-Star Game and seeing a fantastic team take the floor, but when the game begins you realize they left their brains in the locker room.

Anger Management inspires only limp accolades, but it's just amusing enough to earn a look on a chilly, rainy April day.

... the first half of the movie was a guys’ flick that was so frustrating and stupid, it make me want to kill somebody.

Nicholson wears his devilish grin from his first scene to last, and one has to assume that's his reaction to the enormous size of his paycheck and not the material.

[Sandler and Nicholson] aren't doing anything we haven't seen from them before, but it's an undeniably fun movie.

This is a hackneyed, sprawling mess of a comedy, rarely funny and never interesting.

It's neither as hilarious nor as outrageous as it should be, settling for comfortable contrivance instead of consistent craziness.

A better script and more attention to other cast members would have helped but, as it stands, this is still the best Adam Sandler comedy since The Wedding Singer.

Little more than an exercise in frustration, and no amount of chanting the supposedly therapeutic "goosfraba" is going to help.

Check your highbrow at the door, laugh-out-loud funny.

Scripted like a series of bouts between goofy contenders, and teeming with narrative sucker-punches and wacky left-field cameos.
