Could have been great, but Adam Sandler is in it...

This movie has great potential. It has some of my favourit actors, like Jack Nicholson, Woody Harrelson, John Turturro, John C. Reilly, Luis Guzman and even a great cameo by John McEnroe.

But here's the flaw: Adams Sandler is in it. You know, that overrated guy with no talent, acts even worse than an amateur with no experience, brings nothing new to his character, looks the same as ever (thank goodness he is not wearing a cheap dollar store wig in this one) and is never, ever convincing as a character with anger issues. He's just being Adam Sandler. Only the name of his character os different. Same haircut as ever, same attitude as ever, thinking he's a funny guy. And he is no funny guy. He never is.

That's why I've got mixed feelings about this movie. I love the acting by the others who's names I've mentioned above, but Adams Sandler should never work with actors of this veteran status anymore.

In the late 00's Adam Sandler made some pretty good films..

Dave Buznik is a businessman who is wrongly sentenced to an anger- management program, where he meets an aggressive instructor. Anger Management boasts lots of laughs and although it gets a bit silly at times it does it's job pretty well and the chemistry between Sandler and Nicholson is great plus the rest of the supporting cast does a pretty great job as well. The story is simple and the jokes do land for the most part and like i said Jack Nicholson is Fantastic as always, this is also one of Adam Sandler's better films and much better performances and i think that even people who might not like him as an actor will find themselves surprised by how good the overall concept and comedy is and how good of a chemistry there is between the 2 leading men.

A Complete Mess

When making a movie, the producers/directors must first and foremost determine what type of project they are creating. In the case of "Anger Management", director Peter Segal tries to weave some semblance of emotion into the ridiculous plot of his film...and fails miserably in the effort.

For a basic plot summary, "Anger Management" sees young, mild-mannered businessman David Buznik (Adam Sandler) being treated as the company peon despite all his hard work and career aspirations. With some prodding from girlfriend Linda (Marisa Tomei) and a series of crazy events, Buznik begins seeing Dr. Buddy Rydell (Jack Nicholson), an anger management therapist specializing in some rather unorthodox "treatments".

The main problem with this movie is that one must simply face facts: it just isn't all that funny. Sandler makes a couple of his trademark wisecracks that might elicit a chuckle here and there, but Nicholson is completely wasted in a terribly annoying role. For being billed as a "comedy", the laughs are few and far between.

What makes it a truly abysmal effort, though, is the fact that the producers had the gall to try and make it "mean something" towards the end. A movie this ridiculous (with characters so over- the-top as to be almost cartoonish at times) in premise cannot make the sudden switch to emotional without coming off as laughable (exactly what happens here).

Overall, "Anger Management" was one of the most disappointing films I've seen in quite awhile. I was expecting some laughs and some great cast chemistry, but received instead a mess of a film that tries to "pull itself together" in the end but only ends up embarrassing itself further.
