Audiences are still looking at the stars, but nowadays they often do it from the gutter of films like Anger Management.
January 3, 2018
What is fundamentally wrong with Anger Management is that, try as they might, the two stars have absolutely no comedic or dramatic chemistry together, and so eventually the audience gets slightly bored with them.

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.
June 24, 2006
No, it doesn't make much sense, and yes, it's irredeemably phallocentric -- but that is, perhaps, its saving grace.
July 8, 2003
Can it really be true that the latest Adam Sandler film is, well, quite funny? Ish? Yes -- but only because he's paired with Jack Nicholson.
May 27, 2003
The pairing of Nicholson and Sandler is golden.
May 2, 2003
Has hell frozen over? Not only is Jack Nicholson starring in a buddy movie alongside Adam Sandler, but of the two, Sandler's low-key approach is preferable.
April 24, 2003
Strenuous, spottily amusing.
April 20, 2003
This is the kind of coarse comedy where a fart serves as a punch line.
April 16, 2003
Even a longtime Adamophobe has to admit that Sandler is an agreeable presence here, and that the film has some funny filigree work to offset the oppressive schematics.

Embarrassed and clueless, Mr. Nicholson is clearly slumming. As a goopy, doofus pet-clothes designer whose only talent is nostril-wiggling, Mr. Sandler comes closer to playing his real self.
April 15, 2003
The free-associational lurch of the enigmatic Nicholson 12-step program is set to a familiar backbeat of juvenile gross-out and homosexual panic; what's truly illogical is the blithe conflation of anger management and assertiveness training.
April 14, 2003
[A] disaster from the start.
April 13, 2003
Blandly unfunny and narratively nonsensical.
April 11, 2003
A couple of brakes-off set pieces to the side, the antics here are strained, graceless and tiresomely crude, the sorts of things audiences feel they're supposed to laugh at rather than well-developed situations that generate genuine amusement.
April 11, 2003
Flimsy follow-through or not, the teaming still works, and so, at times, does the premise.
April 11, 2003
The promise of Anger Management lasts for all of about 15 minutes.
April 11, 2003
The laughs here are painfully few and far between.
April 11, 2003
A comedy that doesn't call for a review so much as a prospectus.
April 11, 2003
Has its moments.
