Anger Management (2003)

Adam Sandler plays a mellow man who somehow is required to take anger management courses taught by Jack Nicholson.  Sandler was on a plane and he asked for headphones.  The stewardess freaked out and called security.  He was then sent to court, but instead of going to jail, he was given those classes with Nicholson.  Nicholson ends up being more crazy than any of his patients.  He himself has anger management issues, but Sandler has to do everything Nicholson says to avoid jail time.  Ultimately because of Nicholson, Sandler loses his relationship with his girlfriend played by Marisa Tomei.  Nicholson starts to go out with her.  Sandler then has to fight to get her back.

"Anger Management" is a ridiculous movie.  It just didn't make sense why Sandler would have to do all of these anger management courses, when he didn't do anything.  It all didn't make sense until the end.  Supposedly, the entire thing was set up by Sandler's girlfriend so he could get his confidence and ask her to marry him.  It was so stupid.

The movie was so bad.  Even Nicholson overacted everything in this film.  Nothing was funny and frankly, I was bored.  The only character that was worth while was the anger management patient played by John Turturro.  He was good.

"Anger Management" is a poor film.  There is no point to watch this.  It is a waste of anyone's time.  If you haven't seen it, be happy.
