Anger ManagementDirector: Peter Segal, Adam Sandler, Jack Nicholson, Marisa Tomei
A man comes face to face with the rage he didn't know he had in this comedy. Dave Buznick (Adam Sandler) is an even-tempered businessman who, after a series of strange misunderstandings on an airline flight, finds himself accused of air rage. A judge sentences Dave to undergo anger management therapy, and he soon finds himself in the care of Dr. Buddy Rydell (Jack Nicholson), a celebrated therapist. However, Dave's group therapy sessions with a handful of truly disturbed individuals -- among them jumpy ex-con Chuck (John Turturro), obsessive sports fan Nate (Jonathan Loughran), slow-burning Lou (Luis Guzman), egocentric Andrew (Allen Covert), and bisexual porn stars Gina and Stacy (Krista Allen and January Jones) -- leave him far more unsettled than when he arrived. Later, when Buddy decides to move into Dave's home for intensive therapy, he soon discovers Buddy has more than a bit of his own anger to resolve, and that no one brings out Dave's deeply buried inner rage quite like Buddy. Anger Management also stars Marisa Tomei as Dave's girlfriend, Linda; in addition, the film features a number of notable actors in cameos, including Woody Harrelson, John C. Reilly, Ray Liotta, Heather Graham, and Harry Dean Stanton.

loved and enjoyed every part of this humorous video. very well directed, extremely intertaining, and it will keep you laughing. a good strong rating of 4/5 suits this movie perfectly.
Some people hate this movie, but how can you? Jack Nicholson as a scheming anger mangament teacher, and Adam Sandler falling for it? Classic!! Giving a Budhist monk a wedgie for vengeance is extremely funny. Not only is it hilarious, Meatball is the best spokesmodel for fat cat clothing. HaHa!
Anger Management is an enjoyable and often very funny comedy. Although it lacks in parts, Jack Nicholson shines as Buddy, a therepist whose unorthodox methods would make one think that he was in need of ''anger management.'' Sandler also has his moments as the timid Dave, a role that differs from his drunken Billy Madison and anger prone Happy Gilmore.
Adam Sandler seems to rely hugely on his the other actors in the film to have the funny lines or exciting scenes. I believe without someone like Jack Nicholason or John Turturro that the film would not have been as funny. i think b/c of that it makes it that much better of a film and we are seeing Sandler come out of his shell of routine comedies.
Adam Sandler's worst movie since Little Nicky and
