Anger Management

Genre: Comedy; Starring: Jack Nicholson, Adam Sandler, Allen Covert, Luis Guzman, Woody Harrelson, January Jones, Kevin Nealon, John C. Reilly, Lynne Thigpen, Marisa Tomei, John Turturro; Director: Peter Segal; Author: David Dorfman; Release Date Wide: 04/11/2003; Status: In Season; Runtime (in minutes): 106; MPAA Rating: PG-13; Distributor: Columbia Pictures

A movie as bracing and furiously right for the moment as it is broad and huggable. Adam Sandler plays a quiet schlemiel who has spent his life afraid of emotions; Jack Nicholson is the loud shrink who forces him to get in touch with his inner rage. Even if the plot heads for a life lesson at the end of the therapy rainbow, this comedy is a spirited salvo against the rising tide of inanity.
