    with the Riotous On-Screen Comedy Pairing of
    Adam Sandler and Jack Nicholson

    ****************************************
    ANGER MANAGEMENT
    ****************************************

    Hilarious $134 Million Box-Office Smash Hit Comedy from Revolution Studios
    Debuting on Special Edition DVD & Videocassette September 16

    * * * * Culver City, CA (July 7, 2003) - Therapy is in session and the laughs are non-stop
    with the release of the uproarious $134 million buddy comedy ANGER MANAGEMENT that
    topped the box-office for two weeks in a row. *The film stars three-time Academy Award®-
    winner Jack Nicholson (About Schmidt, As Good As It Gets), Golden Globe nominee Adam
    Sandler (Punch-Drunk Love, Mr. Deeds) and Academy Award®-winner Marisa Tomei (In
    The Bedroom, What Women Want). *Premiering September 16 from Columbia TriStar Home
    Entertainment and Revolution Studios, ANGER MANAGEMENT will be available on

    added bonus features such as a side-splitting blooper reel, commentary by Adam Sandler and
    director Peter Segal, deleted scenes, making-of featurettes and much more!

    After a misunderstanding aboard an airplane that escalates out of control, the mild-
    mannered Dave Buznik (Sandler) is remanded to attend anger management sessions run by
    Doctor Buddy Rydell (Nicholson), which are filled with highly eccentric and volatile patients.
    Buddy's unorthodox approach to therapy is confrontational and abrasive, and Dave is
    bewildered by it. *Then, after yet another mishap, the judge orders Dave to step up his therapy
    or wind up in jail. *So, Buddy moves in with Dave to help him battle his inner demons and
    continues to acts out at every opportunity, including making lewd comments about Dave's
    girlfriend Linda (Tomei) and goading Dave into confronting every slight, past or present,
    head-on.

    Featuring special cameos by Emmy Award winner Woody Harrelson (TVs "Will and
    Grace," The People vs. Larry Flynt) and Heather Graham (Austin Powers: The Spy Who
    Shagged Me), (and also co-starring John Turturro (Mr. Deeds, O Brother, Where Art Thou?)
    and Luis Guzmán (Confidence, Punch-Drunk Love), ANGER MANAGEMENT is directed by
    Peter Segal (Nutty Professor II: The Klumps, Tommy Boy) and written by David Dorfman.

    I saw it in theaters and thought it was just okay. If Jack were on the commentary I might've gotten it. So much to buy this fall that this'll have to wait until it's a bargain bin title. But Jack rules, nevertheless.

    This will probably sell more copies than Punch-Drunk Love, which will make me want to curl up in the fetal position and cry.
