Anger Management

Synopsis: Feel the Love

After a small misunderstanding aboard an airplane escalates out of control, timid businessman Dave Buznik (Sandler) is ordered by the court to undergo anger management therapy at the hands of specialist Dr. Buddy Rydell (Nicholson). But when Buddy steps up his aggressive treatment by moving in, Dave goes from mild to wild as the unorthodox treatment wreaks havoc with his life in this hilarious hit comedy that will drive you mad with laughter!

Anger Management 6.5

While I enjoyed ‘School For Scoundrels’ (and, yes, I think they’re comparable movies), I had a bit more of a hard time with this one.

I enjoyed the Jack Nicholson and Adam Sandler duo, but this story of a timid man who is driven to the edge of reason by a court-appointed therapist (purportedly for his own good, I might add!) is very contrived and frequently unrealistic. Sure, it has its amusing moments, but it was equally frustrating to watch and, thus, it tested my patience more than a comedy should. Of course, that’s nothing new with Hollywood cookie-cutter comedies.

I think that it would have been more fun to watch with the right company, however – and this might be rectified at a later date 🙂
