This Adam Sandler flick is actually one of his most accessible. Jack Nicholson and a supporting cast that includes Marisa Tomei, Heather Graham, John Turturro, & Woody Harrelson drive Sandler's character to become so frustrated that he lets out his repressed anger and opens up to his true feelings. The movie follows the Sandler formula of a likable underdog who redeems himself and "gets the girl" in the end. Nicholson is in fine form as the "Anger Management" shrink and NY Yankee fans will enjoy the film's climax at Yankee Stadium. Some parts of the story are pretty silly and pointless, but overall this movie delivers lots of laughs. There is a bit of a dark side to this story, as if this scenario were applied to real life instead of "reel" life people could really get hurt. A person subjected to such an invasive intrusion into their life would presumably become assertive or aggressive much quicker than the character in this film. I consider this one of Sandler's most enjoyable movies, as he is not too over the top or juvenile, and the story and cast work well.

The first time that I saw this movie on video, I was disappointed and told my 'Nicholson fan' friends so. Since the ending is a surprise, when I watched it again I saw the whole storyline in a different light. I actually found myself watching it several more times to catch more and more of the layers and details.
As annoying as Nicholson was in this movie, one cannot take his character [Buddy Rydel] at face value. When you consider the ending and go back over all his dialogue, you begin to see that he was very up front and truthful about most everything he told Dave (Sandler). I later became convinced of the sincerity of Buddy (Nicholson) in other situations--like provoking Dave with Galaxia. If you watch this movie more than once you put on different lenses and see from a different vantage point.
I agree with other reviewers--the first viewing may have you despising Nicholson and giving a thumbs down to the film. I did at first. Now it grew on me to be one of my favorites..
One of my favorite characters in this movie was Chuck. I love his wild looks, and many of his lines are my favorites... "no more fudgicles" and "you're not ready" - the Granada stuff, etc.
WAs Buddy just being outrageously disgusting and perverse when he flipped off rival "Linda's best friend" ...? - I think not. If you watch the film with a different paradigm, you can see that Buddy was truly doing "his work", and that included not only protecting Dave (Sandler), but having the innate manly ability to discern an enemy to Sandler and "the cause" he's undertaken to help.
There are even a couple of times when Nicholson is even impressed with how his student [Sandler] fared during the process...

How do you manage to cast Jack Nicholson, Adam Sandler, Luiz Guzman, John Turturro, Marisa Tomei, Krista Allen and cameos from Heather Graham, Woody Harrelson, and ex NY mayor Rudi Guiliani, and still come up with a film that is mediocre at best?? A very hard thing to do you might think, but director Peter Segal and writer David Dorfman manage just that!! A success of the wrong kind!
So much expectations and most importantly potential, with so little return, proving yet again that in order for a movie, even one starring the great Nicholson,to succeed,it has to have an equally talented writer, director and production team.
Having said that, it is not a bad movie per se,and there are just very few scenes that are funny, but these are very far and few in between and do not make one whole movie.
I think the script is the main culprit! An over the top Nicholson (playing the eccentric but wise mentor who changes the life of his protege, a character often seen in cinema), an annoyingly calm Sandler(even his rare outbursts are somehow not convincing), the character of Turturro who comes out as more aggressive and unstable than angry(I was wondering this man should have been locked up ages ago !!).
The only bright spot in the film was Luiz Guzman who is always excellent and adds a lot to his roles,and of course the pairing of Krista Allen and January Jones as two porn stars/lovers who kiss in the middle of the anger management session (I was thinking this alone is capable of turning the angriest of men to sweet little puppies!), but even this scene was unnecessary and you really feel it does not belong to the movie!
So Anger Management is a lifeless, humourless and colourless film that missed a big opportunity to take advantage of this wealth of talent attached to it.

At first hearing of the concept, you would think that it was a fun premise for a comedy. When word came out that it would star Jack Nicholson and Adam Sandler, it made seem like it could be even more interesting. It was a fun concept, and it had inspiring casting with those two put together, but the filmmakers didn't take adavantage enough of the concept and seemed to let the actors picks up the pieces. What seemed like a perfect vehicle for Adam Sandler, something right up his alley, really becomes a non-Sandler film. When you expect big outbursts and zany, slapsticky comedy, you wouldn't expect Sandler to take a more subtle, low-key approach. It really becomes The Jack Nicholson Show, and Sandler is more the straight man. Sure, he gets steam off every once in a while, but it is not the Sandler performance that one would of expected. Thankfully, there is the master. Jack. Like I said before, this is his movie. He has the best lines, the best scenes, and the most fun, spirited, and interesting performance. Well, of course. He's Jack. Of anything, Sandler bogged the film down. Adam plays Dave Buzznik, an clothes designer for overweight cats(you heard me). He seems mild mannered and quiet enough, but thru some unfortunate(and highly preposterous incidents)on an airplane, Dave is sent to go to anger management classes runned by Dr. Buddy Rydell(Nicholson), who seems to paint Dave as someone with a real problem. Things go from bad to worse when Dave's sentence is pro-longed and the good doctor decides to move in with Dave and watch him more carefully. This also buts in on Dave's relationship with his lovely girlfriend, played by Marisa Tomei, who is always adorable. After some time, Dave, and you, wonder if Dr. Buddy isn't the one who's nuts.Read more ›
