Anger Management Reviews
A frustrating story that worsens before it gets better, you just have to love to hate Nicholson in this role, a person can only take so much!!!
Dave Buznik: No, no, no. I'm the guy in the frozen food section dialling 911. I swear.
Most people are polarized by Adam Sandler; they either love him or hate him. I'm not one of those people. I don't love or hate him. I'll watch all of his movies as a find a majority of them to be watchable entertainment; not great movies, but ok. There are a few of his movies that I do really enjoy though; like Punch Drunk Love and Funny People.
Anger Management is just an ok movie. It's laugh-out-loud funny or insightful in anyway. It's just an entertaining movie. The movie features a great cast that surrounds Sandler and that always helps his movies go down a little easier. Jack Nicholson and Marisa Tomei are fun to watch like always. Then there's John Turturro who makes for a good percentage of the laughs that do come out of this movie. There's also just an endless amount of star studded cameos. Heather Graham, John C. Reilly, Woody Harrelson, Bobby Knight, Derek Jeter, Roger Clemens, etc. all make appearances in Anger Management. They help to keep the movie flowing and entertaining.
I'm not saying that this is a great movie or that Sandler is a great actor. I'm just saying there is a lot that can be enjoyed here.
ha ha ha really, what the heck??
Dave Buznick (Adam Sandler) is an even-tempered businessman who, after a series of strange misunderstandings on an airline flight, finds himself accused of air rage. A judge sentences Dave to undergo anger management therapy, and he soon finds himself in the care of Dr. Buddy Rydell (Jack Nicholson), a celebrated therapist. However, Dave's group therapy sessions with a handful of truly disturbed individuals -- among them jumpy ex-con Chuck (John Turturro), obsessive sports fan Nate (Jonathan Loughran), slow-burning Lou (Luis Guzman), egocentric Andrew (Allen Covert), and bisexual porn stars Gina and Stacy (Krista Allen and January Jones) -- leave him far more unsettled than when he arrived. Later, when Buddy decides to move into Dave's home for intensive therapy, he soon discovers Buddy has more than a bit of his own anger to resolve, and that no one brings out Dave's deeply buried inner rage quite like Buddy.
Anger Management is one of those movies that wants to serve you on some smart witty and intelligent humor. Jack Nicholson's performance is great though it can't be placed on the same level in the movie "As Good As It Gets". Nevertheless as you can beat some of the ever-returning clichés in this movie you're in for some fun moments. Certainly the every living happily ever after cliché is a tough one to beat. Not a masterpiece at all, more a film with an overall average of everything. I wouldn't recommend it, instead I say the must see is "As Good As It Gets".
