Anger Management (2003)
Critic Consensus: Thought not without its funny moments, Anger Management is ultimately stale and disappointingly one-note, especially considering its capable cast.

Critic Reviews for Anger Management
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.
No, it doesn't make much sense, and yes, it's irredeemably phallocentric -- but that is, perhaps, its saving grace.
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.
This is the kind of coarse comedy where a fart serves as a punch line.
Audience Reviews for Anger Management
You would assume, considering the obvious typecasting of Nicholson and Sandler as two angry guys, that here is a comic gold mine waiting to be plummed. No such luck. While Nicholson and Tomei endeavor mightily to deadlift this carcass they are given nothing really to grab ahold of to work it. And Sandler (however much he has been laughing all the way to the bank and at America's expense) lays another turd.
Anger Management is too boiled up and ultimately doesn't strike a chord. The film has its moments, especially from the addition of Jack Nicholson, but it stumbles from being merely a one-trick-pony of comedy films. 3/5
Very irritating movie with a good ending.
