WHAT'S IT ABOUT?
Dave Buznick (Sandler) has some major anger issues. Or does he? Forced to attend anger therapy sessions with a wacky specialist (Nicholson), it isn't long before Dave starts to wonder whether it is the doctor himself who is the crazed angry man.
IS IT A GOOD MOVIE?
Another very funny and sweet offering from the great Adam Sandler. This movie was extremely funny. I know a comedy has done its job when I laugh out loud many times throughout the film. In your case, you already know if youíre the type of person who enjoys Adam Sandler films or not, so I wonít go on and on about him, but if youíve liked most of his films already, then this is a no-brainer...youíll love it. The casting of Nicholson was also a stroke of genius, Jack is hilarious and does all those ďJackismsĒ that we all know and love. They both have great chemistry together and Nicholson even manages to give the film a bit of legitimacy in case some were willing to skip this movie on the basis that they donít like Sandler comedies on their own. The movie is simple enough in its plot, so you just have to sit back and enjoy Adam slowly going bonkers as the movie progresses.

To top that off, John Turturro is officially a comic genius. Heíd already made me wet myself in THE BIG LEBOWSKI, O' BROTHER WHERE ART THOU and his hilarious turn as Sandlerís butler in MR. DEEDS. He is, without a doubt, the funniest and best part about this movie, worth renting or buying based solely on his performance as Davidís ďanger allyĒ Chuck. Funny, funny stuff here folks, pure comic gold! There are also about a dozen other cameos and bit parts in the film thatíll crack you up. I can think of no real reason not to suggest this comedy, so Iíll make this review short and sweet. I liked it, I laughed and when I was done laughing...I laughed some more. Rent it!
THE EXTRAS
The fun starts with an audio commentary by Sandler and director Peter Segal. Pete and Adam have a fun time together, talk very casually and spontaneously crack jokes. Nice fun commentary. The ďDo You Have Anger Problems?Ē Game feature consists of many of the cast members asking you multiple choice type ďangerĒ questions to test your anger level. Iím pretty impatient so these bore me and they arenít particularly funny either. There are also 4 deleted scenes, three of which arenít particularly funny, but you've gotta check out the John McEnroe one...itís priceless!! I canít figure out why they cut this out.

ďSkull SessionĒ is an 18-minute behind-the-scenes featurette, with the usual cast & crew interviews. Nothing you havenít seen before. ďMy Buddy, JackĒ is a very short featurette which basically has everyone gushing over the great Jack Nicholson...and rightfully so! Five minutes of gag reels are also on the disc...all very funny and worth the watch. A ton of trailers round out the extras.
FINAL DIAGNOSIS
A laugh-out-loud comedy that is sure to please everyone. This movie might even convert some anti-Sandler types. The extras are adequate enough and the movie even holds up after a second viewing. Buy it, itíll make a great addition to your DVD collection.
