Anytime a film grosses more than it costs to make, it is a win. 

However, for actors like Jack Nicholson, movie-making is an art and cannot always be measured by financial success.

While Anger Management grossed $195 million on a $75 million budget, the film received mixed reviews from critics.

Nicholson and Sandler have an amazing synergy and chemistry;

Their odd-couple-esque energy results in masterful engagement and side-splitting humor.

Both Sandler and Nicholson have created reputations for being hilarious while getting angry. 

This film brings together both of their unique skill sets and pulls the humor out of rage. 

They hilariously play off of each other’s anger and make for memorable exchanges. 

One of my personal favorites is when Dr. Rydell attempts to explain that there are two types of angry people in the world using the cashier analogy.
