About this movie

After a small misunderstanding aboard an airplane escalates out of control, timid businessman Dave Buznik (Adam Sandler) is ordered by the court to undergo anger management therapy at the hands of specialist Dr. Buddy Rydell (Jack Nicholson). Dave reluctantly accepts the doctor's counseling, but after another mishap Buddy steps up his aggressive and unorthodox treatments by moving in with Dave. As Buddy wreaks havoc with every aspect of his life, Dave must decide whether to crawl back into his shell or finally stand up for himself. Laugh like crazy at this outrageous comedy that will drive you mad with laughter. The top-notch supporting cast includes Marisa Tomei, Luis Guzman, Woody Harrelson, John Turturro, and Heather Graham. ANGER MANAGEMENT is just what the doctor ordered. (Original Title - Anger Management) © 2003 Revolution Studios Distribution Company, LLC. All Rights Reserved.

The best Adam Sandler film I've seen. Speaking as a passive-aggressive guy who internalizes everything, Sandler absolutely nailed his character from the twitchiness when he starts getting upset to the explosion of anger when it becomes too much to contain. And Jack Nicholson's snark was so damn annoying! I empathized heavily with Dave because Nicholson played Buddy so well! The best part is this is not just a comedy for guys like me and Dave. It's a mirror, showing us that things need to change.

I loved it because it has many popular actors/actresses and it made me laugh Non-stop but a little bit inappropriate but it's funny anyway. I'm forcing people who've never seen it to watch it

Lol it was good. It felt quite repetitive though. Charlie sleeps with some lady he's not supposed to sleep with. Old man is always grumpy. Lacy has boyfriend problems. Patrick has gay problems. Nolan always sad and mopey. Still good though.
