After a misunderstanding aboard an airplane that escalates out of control, the mild-mannered Dave Buznik is ordered to attend anger management sessions run by Doctor Buddy Rydell, which are filled with highly eccentric and volatile men and women. Buddy's unorthodox approach to therapy is confrontational and abrasive and Dave is bewildered by it.
Then, after yet another mishap, a judge orders Dave to step up his therapy or wind up in jail. So, Buddy moves in with Dave to help him battle his inner demons.
Buddy himself has no inner demons since he acts out at every opportunity and that includes making lewd comments about Dave's girlfriend Linda and goading Dave into confronting every slight, past or present, head-on.
But Buddy finally goes too far and Dave must decide whether to crawl back into his shell or stand up for himself. Could it be that Buddy's confounding and contradictory treatment is just what the doctor ordered?
What the critics are saying:
"...Anger Management achieves what it sets out to do. The pairing of Nicholson and Sandler is golden."- Stella Papamichael, BBCi
"...a ragged piece of filmmaking, but the odds are you'll have as good a time watching it as Nicholson and Sandler seemed to have making it."- Lou Lumenick, New York Post
"Some of the movie is so primitively staged that you can almost hear someone leafing through the book of instructions that came with the camera."- Elvis Mitchell, New York Times
Just another typical Tom Cruise action film, with nothing to get too excited about. The film is loaded with action-film stereotypes and cheesy one-liners. Read More »

Hands of Stone is a bland, unlikable portrayal of a real-life boxer that struggles to hit the highs of Rocky IV let alone Raging Bull or the original Rocky. Mark this one down as “for boxing fanatics only”. Read More »
