Peter Segal directs Adam Sandler, Jack Nicholson and Marisa Tomei in this comedy where a mild mannered guy is forced into anger management therapy where his doctor is an intrusive, disruptive arsehole.
As a fan of both stars I had high expectations for this pairing but it seems to just go through the motions. There are some fine trailer moments; beating up a Buddhist monk, a traffic jam causing in-car therapy session. Even these don’t exactly produce guffaws though. The film sets up a manic support cast in the group sessions then ignores them for much of the running time. Overall, not much wit. Unambitious and forgettable.
