Editors Note
Note ANGER MANAGEMENT, directed by Peter 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 rage" 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 (who apparently gets more attractive as she gets older) 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 the esteemed former mayor of NYC, Rudy Giuliani.

Review Adam Sandler fans, rejoice! Your favorite comic actor has returned to the form that made him a box office success. After a trio of offbeat choices that alienated significant portions of his target audience (the Mr. Deeds remake, Paul Thomas Anderson's quirky Punch Drunk Love, and the animated 8 Crazy Nights), Sandler has offered his loyalists a belated Valentine in the form of Anger Management. This new comedy has all the requisite elements we have come to expect from Sandler pictures: flatulence, big dick jokes, assorted forms of vulgarity, and cartoon violence. The only thing that's missing is the trademark Sandler obnoxiousness (he plays a fairly mild-mannered individual). But we have Jack Nicholson for that...I suspect that Anger Management might have been a funnier film if the movie hadn't been forced to contain a throw-away romantic subplot (with a criminally underused Marisa Tomei in the girlfriend role) and a cringe-worthy "moral." The more consistently amusing a movie is, the easier it is to overlook such flaws. The sporadic nature of Anger Management's laugh-inducing material makes it the kind of outing that's better suited for home video watching than a trip to theaters. Except, of course, for Adam Sandler fans, who will get exactly what they expect.

Review The concept is inspired. The execution is lame. "Anger Management," a film that might have been one of Adam Sandler's best, becomes one of Jack Nicholson's worst. Because Nicholson has a superb track record and a sure nose for trash, it's obvious the movie was a Sandler project with Nicholson as hired talent, not the other way around. The fact that four of the producers were involved in "Master of Disguise" and three with "The Animal" indicates that quality-control was not an issue...Everything about the way the movie goes wrong--the dumbing-down of plot developments, the fascination with Sandler's whiny one-note character, the celebrity cameos, the cringing sentimentality--indicates a product from the Sandler assembly line. No doubt Sandler's regular fans will love this movie, which is a return to form after the brilliant "Punch Drunk Love." Nicholson's fans will be appalled...That there is a market for this I do not deny. But imagine, just imagine, a movie in which Dave Buznik truly was exploding with rage, and Dr. Buddy Rydell really was an anger therapist. This movie should be remade immediately, this time with Jack Nicholson as executive producer, and Adam Sandler as hired gun.

Quotes
Carrie Rickey, Philadelphia Inquirer Each actor is unusually watchful and wily, and their actorly competition underscores the one-upmanship of their characters.
David Sterritt, Christian Science Monitor At a time when screen comedy has its own problems with anger management, Sandler's self-possessed style is as refreshing as it is funny.
Desson Thomson, The Washington Post Miller time for the funny bone.
Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly ...a comedy as bracing and furiously right for the moment as it is broad and huggable.
Phil Villarreal, AZ Daily Star ...leave it to Sandler and Nicholson to make this movie worth more than the price of admission.
