Aroview: Well-managed ‘therapy’ comedy in which a mild mannered Adam Sandler is delivered by court-order into the hands of lunatic shrink Jack Nicholson.
A consistently wacky satire and sometimes nearly surreal, both stars rise above their respective schticks, especially Nicholson in an extremely funny, nightmare depiction of the therapist free-associating his methods as he goes along. The patient is soon forced to fulfil various tenets of pop psychology: public singing, ‘liberating’ sexual encounters, teaming up with a psychotic ‘anger ally’ and more. Though hardly serious stuff, this could indeed dispel the cares of your day.

2 stars (Good Try) Sandler is not too bad in this plus there is a very talented support/cameo cast in Tomei, Turturro, Stanton etc. The plot idea is fine but it doesn't last out the running time.~tubbs
