Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Unless you're 15 at heart, you may need anger management yourself after sitting through this aggressively crass comedy, which alternates between mean-spirited slapstick and arbitrary uplift."
‑ David Ansen, Newsweek
"Strenuous, spottily amusing."
‑ David Edelstein, Slate
"Very raunchy, uneven comedy with great actors."
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media
"The only thing you can't get angry at are the adorable animal actors."
‑ Staci Layne Wilson,
"This film is delightful, funny nonsense that had me laughing out loud."
‑ Tony Medley,
"No, it doesn't make much sense, and yes, it's irredeemably phallocentric -- but that is, perhaps, its saving grace."
‑ Geoff Andrew, Time Out
"This is the kind of coarse comedy where a fart serves as a punch line."
‑ Peter Rainer, New York Magazine/Vulture
"Full-blown 'Jack'--his face a spectacular special effect of full-blown energy--remains an irresistible act. [Blu-Ray]"
‑ Peter Canavese, Groucho Reviews
"[It's] like going to the NBA All-Star Game and seeing a fantastic team take the floor, but when the game begins you realize they left their brains in the locker room."
‑ Jeffrey Overstreet, Looking Closer
"Sometimes even an occasional laugh can be the best medicine."
‑ Mark Sells, Oregon Herald
"Has hell frozen over? Not only is Jack Nicholson starring in a buddy movie alongside Adam Sandler, but of the two, Sandler's low-key approach is preferable."
‑ Jami Bernard, New York Daily News
"Even a longtime Adamophobe has to admit that Sandler is an agreeable presence here, and that the film has some funny filigree work to offset the oppressive schematics."
‑ Richard Corliss, TIME Magazine
"Do we really need a fable about corporate guys getting in touch with their inner brats?"
‑ Rob Gonsalves,
"Anger Management does not really deserve an actual review."
‑ Jordan Hiller,
"Anger Management inspires only limp accolades, but it's just amusing enough to earn a look on a chilly, rainy April day."
‑ Judith Egerton, Courier-Journal (Louisville, KY)
