...stop and watch, even though nothing is really going on - that's what I think about the film 'Anger Mgmt' - as a matter of fact, my wife tried to stop watching more than a few times and yet was compelled to sit and watch to see what ridiculously stupid and completely unrealistic thing would happen next - kind of like listening to Howard Stern.
It's not that the film is that bad - it's just not nearly as funny as I had hoped it would be, but then I guess I'm one of the few people that doesn't think that Adam Sandler is really that funny most of the time - although I have not seen several of Sandler's movies, so far the only Adam Sandler film that I thought was truly and originally funny was his 1996 hockey/golf comedy 'Happy Gilmore' - but his 2002 remake-film 'Mr. Deeds' was an insult to good cinema in general, and much of his comedy is just way too lowest-common-denominator oriented for me - even his 'Saturday Night LIVE' stuff never really caught my attention like the great stuff of many of his SNL predecessors, such as Belushi, Murray, and Murphy.
...but fans of Jack Nicholson, of which I am one, will probably enjoy his kooky role as the anger mgmt specialist...and Marisa Tomei is lovely, as usual...and the members of the anger mgmt therapy group are a bonus, with most of the best laughs provided by the actors playing the therapy group's odd bunch of anger-possessed nut-jobs, like Luis Guzman('Boogie Nights') and John Turturro('The Color of Money')... Just try and control your anger if 'Anger Management' doesn't deliver all the laughs you had hoped for.
If you're a Sandler fan, Enjoy!
This is your typical Adam Sandler movie. Not the best work of Jack Nicholson either.
If you have nothing better to do then I'd say watch it.
Pretty good movie, with a lot of funny moments, but not exactly what I have come to expect from a Jack Nicholson movie. Adam Sandler plays his usual usual funny/silly self. The movie is about people in anger management. Mostly a bunch of juvenile idiots who don't have enough sense to shut up and behave like adults. This is a whole movie about those people.
