Unexpectedly funny and wittyBy bassman37m from Inverness-shire , 08 Dec 2003
[Highly rated reviewer]This is one of these movies that does not get the mass media publicity and caught us by surprise. We found it hilarious, Jack Nickelson being at his very best again. Very enjoyable !

Truly dreadful tripeBy Daveagain (1 review) , 18 Feb 2013Possibly the worst film I've ever been forced to endure. How the script got to the stage of production is beyond me, it was so banal and contrived. I could hardly believe that Nicholson - who has given such stellar performances in films like 'One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest', 'The Departed' and 'The Shining' - would consider this a good film to be part of. This is Adam Sandler's style of film for sure - he's great in 'Happy Gilmore' - but I can't believe even he stooped this low. Do not waste a minute of your time on it!!
Funny even second timeBy seasidejennifer (7 reviews) , 29 Dec 2012I thought it was hilarious first time, watched it with my kids and found it even funnier. Well worth a watch
A fair attempt, but both of these actors can do better...By Mrs_T (7 reviews) , 02 Sep 2012
[Highly rated reviewer]I had to force myself to watch this all the way through, and did (well, up to the last song) so solely because of my general love for Adam Sandler films.
I vaguely remember watching this years and years ago, probably around the time it came out, and being unimpressed. I decided that that was probably youth and not understanding the funny parts and so watched it again, as an adult. Nope, still the least funny thing I have seen.
It's a massive shame, both for Sandler and Nicholson. There are attempts to be funny, and I'm sure there must be some people who love it, but for me (and clearly from most of the 26,000 reviews on here also) it's a massive disappointment.
Jack doesnt need Batman when he is JokingBy Greenfingersjake (131 reviews) from Milton Keynes , 02 Jun 2012ANGER MANAGEMENT, directed by Peter 'NUTTY PROFESSOR 2' Segal, looks into the life of Dave Buznik (Adam Sandler), an executive assistant at a pet clothing company. The mild-mannered but overly passive Dave is in love with his girlfriend, Linda (Marisa Tomei), yet his anxious personality keeps him from taking things further, both in their relationship and in his career. However, Dave's life takes a strange turn when he is wrongly accused of 'air rag'' on a flight and sentenced to mandatory anger management classes. Eccentric anger guru Buddy Rydell (Jack Nicholson) becomes Dave's therapist, but when Buddy abruptly moves in with Dave, the doctor-patient relationship takes an unusual turn.
An appropriate pairing of actors with oversized personalities, ANGER MANAGEMENT allows Nicholson to run amuck, while letting Sandler hone the mellower side of his cinematic presence. As Sandler's Dave becomes more bewildered at his predicament, Nicholson's Buddy teeters wildly between wise and rambunctious. Meanwhile, Tomei shines in her role as Dave's beloved. Of course, no mainstream Sandler movie would be complete without a number of familiar faces in supporting and cameo roles, and ANGER has them by the boatload. John Turturro steals every scene he's in; Luiz Guzman sports some remarkably unfortunate facial hair; Heather Graham shows up as a brownie-hurling blonde bombshell; and John C. Reilly appears as a bully-turned-Buddhist-monk. And to top it all off, there are cameos by renowned 'angry' sports figures Bobby Knight and John McEnroe, as well as former mayor of NYC, Rudy Giuliani. This film is great
WEAK AND LAMEBy Shipwreck20 (17 reviews) , 18 Mar 2012A weak film let down by a failure to get up and go before the end.
Nicholson relies too much on facial expressions to convince everyone he is scary and mad. Sandler seems like he is stuck in a rut and has turned up to work like the rest of us, because we have to.
The last 10 minutes is as the whole film should be.
There are a lot better out there.
