Storyline

Mild-mannered timid businessman Dave Buznik works for a pet clothing company out of New York City. He's got an abrasive boss named Mr. Frank Head who frequently takes credit for his work and steps on him in return. He's got a loving girlfriend, Linda, whose best friend is her condescending college ex, Andrew. But when a misunderstanding aboard an airplane goes haywire, Dave is ordered by the court to undergo anger management therapy at the hands of specialist Dr. Buddy Rydell, who is an unpredictable, psychopathic character. As the relationship between Dave and Buddy becomes more tense, when the unorthodox treatment wreaks havoc Dave's life, and Buddy might be the only one who can save him from a problem he recognizes right away in his patient, that could only get worse.

Goofs

In Yankee Stadium, when Dave attempts to run out and take over the P.A. microphone, the mic shown on the stand is a popular news mike - an Electro-Voice 635 - a wired mike, with no cord plugged into it. However, when he actually gets out there, and takes the mike off the stand, it's a Samson wireless mike, with the little antenna sticking out the back. See more »

YOU will be angry you actually spent money to see this
11 April 2003 | by See all my reviews

This movie looked like it might be fun from the preview, and I like both Jack Nicholson and Adam Sandler. There really is probably only one reason they were in this movie--for the paycheck. What a terrible, terrible film. It's highly uncomfortable to watch, features very bad Three Stooges humor, and is completely unrealistic. I don't mind stupid movies if they're funny, but this had only one funny minute in the whole film. If you feel some great need to see it, catch it on video. Just remember that you can't get those two hours of your life back. It's simply dreadful--full of exaggeration, stupid stereotypes, and cued movie music that tells you how you're supposed to feel. It's basically a typical big-budget Hollywood movie trying to take your money without giving you any real entertainment in return. If you want to see Adam Sandler in something sweet and funny, rent The Wedding Singer.
