Charlie Sheen hasn't lost his chops. It helps that his new agreeable-enough comedy on FX, Anger Management, mirrors his previous one, Two and a Half Men.
[The producers] have failed to uphold their usual high standards, having not mastered the calculus of delivering the boorishness for which Sheen loyalists thirst while simultaneously tinkering with themes of redemption.
If the series was actually a disaster, that might at least be captivating, but as is, "Anger Management" is just an average sitcom with a few good laugh lines here and there.
Anger Management, [Charlie Sheen's] new sitcom, is kind of a mirror image of Sheen: scabrously, outrageously funny at times and monotonously one-note at others.
Only committed Sheen fans will be enticed to stay beyond the initial curiosity tune-in.
You know everything you need to know about this series. It's Charlie Sheen in a laugh-tracked three-camera sitcom, which is different for FX, but not really taking advantage of cable boundaries in the ways that Two and a Half Men couldn't.
It's not raunchy enough. It's not gritty enough. It's not Sheen enough.
Sheen, "Anger" showrunner Bruce Helford and FX have created a show so lazy in its ambitions I want to call Sheen up and remind him that he blasted "Two and a Half Men" for its easy setups and cheap punch lines.
The fact that hype alone could make Anger Management a hit is enough to make the blood boil.
Audience Reviews for Anger Management: Season 1
Dec 05, 2020I think the show was funny, not at the level of two men and half, but really I missed Charlie Sheen a lot in that show, and this is a different take that somewhat reminds me of that show, while being wildly different in many ways.
Aug 14, 2020So so comedy that crashed once Blair was thrown off.
Sep 13, 2017Predictably unfunny sitcom. Dirty jokes for the sake of being dirty. If you're a big Sheen fan you might find something here, but I found myself groaning throughout. Most jokes are structured around one character reacting to the ridiculousness of another character. Lazy, lazy writing.
Nov 04, 2014Anger Management does offer a few laughs here and there. (Sometimes you laugh because there's a laugh track to remind you that there's been a joke. Otherwise you woudn't.)You'd enjoy some parts of the show. It is not a complete failure but still, it is a disappointment for the fans of Charlie Sheen who would've expected more. In fact if it isn't for Charlie Sheen, it would have been Bye-Bye Birdie after first few episodes. Watch it if you're his hardcore fan.
Apr 12, 2014FX's Anger Management is a weaker version of Two and a Half Men, even if the two shows don't share too many similarities, the creators try to capture the same humor by making Charlie a man-slut and somewhat of a drunk, but it still has enough laughs and clever jokes to entertain.
