Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: Thought not without its funny moments, Anger Management is ultimately stale and disappointingly one-note, especially considering its capable cast.

What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Anger Management is a 2003 comedy in which Jack Nicholson plays a therapist who uses unusual methods to treat his unwilling subject, played by Adam Sandler. This movie is extremely raunchy for a PG-13, with constant jokes about penis size, plus jokes about lesbian porn stars who enjoy three-way sex, a drag queen prostitute, a mentally ill girl, masturbation, premature ejaculation, flatulence, and prison rape. It has comic violence --tasing, fistfights, bar fights. Characters drink and smoke. A character claims to be from a town in Germany called "Lickin Zee Dickin." There's frequent profanity, including "f--k."
