Anger Management: Season 1 - Rotten Tomatoes

Anger Management: Season 1 (2012)




Critic Consensus: Anger Management is aggressively so-so, with thin characters and a few groan-worthy gags for every good one.

Critic Reviews for Anger Management: Season 1

All Critics (35)

Charlie Sheen hasn't lost his chops. It helps that his new agreeable-enough comedy on FX, Anger Management, mirrors his previous one, Two and a Half Men.

[The producers] have failed to uphold their usual high standards, having not mastered the calculus of delivering the boorishness for which Sheen loyalists thirst while simultaneously tinkering with themes of redemption.

If the series was actually a disaster, that might at least be captivating, but as is, "Anger Management" is just an average sitcom with a few good laugh lines here and there.

Anger Management, [Charlie Sheen's] new sitcom, is kind of a mirror image of Sheen: scabrously, outrageously funny at times and monotonously one-note at others.

Only committed Sheen fans will be enticed to stay beyond the initial curiosity tune-in.
