Anger Management

Anger Management (2003)

56 mistakes

Visible crew/equipment: In the scene after the huge fight with the Buddists, Jack Nicholson speeds off in his Land Rover and cuts into traffic to get away from the monastary. If you look three cars back there is a state trooper weaving through both lanes to make sure the set is closed. He stays visible throughout the scene.

Factual error: When Dave is at the Yankee game and he is telling Linda he wants to marry her from the field, it is impossible for his voice to ring throughout the whole stadium without a microphone (even though it echoes as if he were using one.). Similarly, he wouldn't have been able to hear Linda when she shouts "I'm over here."

xx:xx:xx

Revealing mistake: When Jack and Adam are in bed together, after Jack's "flatulent" moment, Adam tries to keep from laughing while answering Jack's question. The blanket covering Adam's face is obviously covering up an hysterical set moment.

Add time

Continuity mistake: When Jack speeds out into the road in the Land Rover, there are several cars in the background. However, in the next immediate shot, when we look out the back window, there are completely different cars behind them.

Continuity mistake: After the fury fighters' meeting with John McEnroe Dave asks Buddy to talk to him in private. The go into the multi-purpose hall of the community center which has a stage on one side. In all wide shots and one close-up we see them talking in front of the stage, in all other close-ups in front of an inscription on the wall which is about 20 meters away.

Continuity mistake: In the beginning of the film, it shows Dave as a child and according to the film it is Brooklyn 1978. Dave is wearing a Dukes of Hazzard t-shirt, but that show didn't debut untill 1979.

Anger Management mistake picture

Continuity mistake: After their encounter with the monks, Buddy and Dave speed off and come out onto a road. The first shot sees the whole car come onto the road, where there is a double unbroken line in the middle of it. The shot changes to Buddy and Dave in the car. Watch through the back windshield. The double unbroken line has turned into a single, broken line.

xx:xx:xx

Factual error: After the Yankee game when Adam Sandler and Marisa Tomei are going home via the subway, they show Yankee Stadium in the background and they are standing on the platform further away from the stadium. If they live in Brooklyn, they should be on the platform closer to the stadium as that is the one that is south bound towards Manhattan and Brooklyn. The one they are on goes north. Why would they be going north away from home at that hour?

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: When Buddy and Dave are on the bridge singing, when Buddy has the papers they are held together with a paper clip. In one shot when Dave has the papers, they are held with a staple.

Add time

Continuity mistake: When David is at his first anger management meeting, Lou is wearing a black shirt that sometimes covers his stomach and sometimes does not, riding up and down depending on the shot.

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the movie when Adam Sandler is about to get on the plane they do a couple of close ups of his face. Whenever they cut to something else and then come back to his face his sideburns are shorter. This happens a couple of times in this scene.

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: When Dave lets his lawyer hear what went on in the car, things that were said have been shortened and shuffled around.

Add time

Continuity mistake: As Adam Sandler goes down the courthouse steps after his third trip to court, the same red headed woman passes him twice.

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: When Dave first meets his 'group', just after Stacy and Gina kiss, one of the group members is shown wearing an Iverson headband. A few seconds later as the camera pans back to him, the headband is backwards.

Add time

Factual error: When Dave and Buddy get to Boston, Dave is using his cell phone, mentioning that they didn't have to take a five-hour trip to Boston just to find out that Buddy's mom was getting a Jelly Bean removed from her nose. Problem is, he's calling from the ramp staircase of Alfred Lerner Hall at Columbia University, which is in New York City, not Boston.

xx:xx:xx

Factual error: At the beginning when Dave's boss hangs up on him Dave's mobile phone produces a dial tone. Mobile phones don't have that feature.

Continuity mistake: In the night after the first fury fighters' meeting Dave and Chuck sit in a bar. When Dave says that he wants to go back Chuck's cigarette is in his mouth. When the camera angle changes it's in his hand. A little later, when Chuck memorizes the chicks in the war frying his banana the hand with the cigarette changes from hanging down to pointing up in mid-sentence.

NancyFelix

Continuity mistake: When Buddy and Dave drive to work Buddy pulls the brake on the bridge. Through the rear window you see cars skidding and jamming up right behind them. Then comes an areal shot where there are just two cars braking at a distance, but when it cuts back to the view from the front the jam is back.

xx:xx:xx

NancyFelix

Continuity mistake: When Adam Sandler is outside on the phone with his lawyer and the NYC is in the background, the boat wake disappears and reappears in the shadow of the bridge.

Add time

Continuity mistake: When Dave is assigned his anger ally, Chuck, look at the paper in Chuck's pocket. In the first few close ups, the paper in his pocket that is poking out shows no writing. Then eventually the paper has a symbol on it

Add time

Continuity mistake: When Adam Sandler and Jack Nicholson are on the plane, they are watching the movie Tomcats, and the movie keeps jumping back and forth out of order.

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: In the scene when Dave and Buddy sing "I am pretty" on the bridge Buddy's seat belt shifts between his shoulder and his arm several times, sometimes so far down that it's not in the picture any more.

xx:xx:xx

NancyFelix

Revealing mistake: When David's car does the little jump while driving to the Yankee's game, you can see that it is a stunt driver driving, not Adam Sandler. This is most obvious when the light hits his face for a second.

Add time

Factual error: When Dave is on the plane the flight attendant is talking about "how their country is going through a very difficult time right now" meaning the 9/11 attacks but later on in the movie when Buddy is in the shower and Dave is talking to his lawyer on the phone on the roof in the background you can see the twin towers.

Add time

Plot hole: Just how can you get a famous author, a judge, and a flight attendant set-up Adam Sandler in such a scheme? A judge cannot use a courtroom (along with bailiffs during regular business hours) to pull off such a scam. Moreover, when he was arrested for the fight in the bar, there is no guarantee he would have been brought up before the same judge. Also when explaining to his boss about not getting a second flight in the beginning, Adam Sandler says that the plane had been turned around because of his behaviour. Show me an airline that's willing to do that for a scam.

Continuity mistake: When Dave boards the plane the way his lapel is crumpled under the strap of his bag changes several times from shot to shot.

NancyFelix

Continuity mistake: After his first court case Dave goes to the Community Center where Buddy does anger treatment. When he picks up one of Buddy's books from a table there are some wooden chairs scattered in the background. In the next shot we see him from an upstairs landing, and there is now one wooden chair with its back directly at the table, and one white plastic chair where the wooden chairs were before.

xx:xx:xx

NancyFelix

Plot hole: Near the end where Adam Sandler's girlfriend tells him that the anger management was a set up, Sandler asks about the air stewardess incident and she says that it was all a set up, however, the cocktail waitress incident isn't mentioned and surely his girlfriend couldn't have arranged that, therefore it was in fact a coincidence that everything worked out in the end.

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: When Chuck is assigned as Dave's anger ally he puts his hand on Dave's shoulder from the side. When the camera shows them from behind his hand is on the back of Dave's shoulder.

xx:xx:xx

NancyFelix

Continuity mistake: When Dave throws the bully-turned-monk Arnie Shankman down, Arnie's head lands on the gravel and his robe under his body. Before Arnie gets up there's a close-up of his head with his robe partly under his head.

NancyFelix

Continuity mistake: Buddy pours cereal in his bowl. When he spells out the word chill, there's not much cereal in the bowl. Much less than he poured in it.

Audio problem: Buddy throws away Dave's CD's, which make a breaking sound. Why? It's not like he threw them from across the room. He simply drops them in the trash can.

Continuity mistake: Dave boards the plane before Buddy but when Dave is being shown his seat, Buddy is already sitting in his.

Factual error: When the young Dave is being embarrassed, his underwear shows the new 'Fruit of the Loom' logo on the waistband. In the late 1970s, children's 'Fruit of The Loom' underwear just had two parallel horizontal lines on the waistband.

Add time

Continuity mistake: When Dave approaches Buddy in the Community Center there's a white painted brick wall in the background. When the camera angle changes the wall is covered with a colorful carpet.

Continuity mistake: After the first court case Dave walks upstairs to meet Buddy. When he comes through the door he is holding his verdict papers in his hand, which he didn't have with him when he was downstairs.

Continuity mistake: When Stacy tells her story in the first fury fighters' meeting, her hair changes several times between covering her medallion and not covering it.

xx:xx:xx

NancyFelix

Continuity mistake: After the first fury fighters' meeting Buddy declares Chuck as Dave's anger ally. Chuck wants to give Dave his phone number, pulls out a letter to his father he had started, puts it back in the pocket, then takes out a smaller piece of paper with the number. Then he walks off with both hands empty, but when the camera angle changes he is seen waving back with a piece of paper which, sizewise, looks very much like the one he had given to Dave.

Continuity mistake: When Dave and Linda talk at Dave's apartment about Andrew's 'thing' Linda puts her bag on the kitchen table. When she puts her jacket on top the bag is turned by 90 degrees.

xx:xx:xx

NancyFelix

Continuity mistake: In the scene with Dave and Chuck at the bar, when the camera is on Chuck before he picks up the fight, we twice see the arm of the same person opening the door and holding it open without walking in. (The black and white sleeve has a strange resemblance with Lou's from the fury fighters' meeting scene, and it looks a bit as if he opened the door but realized that he had no business being on the set.)

xx:xx:xx

NancyFelix

Continuity mistake: When Buddy stays over night at Dave's place the first time Dave ends up sleeping on the floor with his teddy in his arm. When Buddy wakes him up and takes a picture the right arm of the teddy points into different directions from shot to shot.

xx:xx:xx

NancyFelix

Continuity mistake: When Buddy comes to Dave's cubicle Meatball the cat sits there absolutely quietly but the beret on his head moves back and forth in alternating shots.

xx:xx:xx

NancyFelix

Continuity mistake: When Dave and Buddy sing "I am pretty" on the bridge the window is visibly closed, only during their arguments with the drivers who go by (especially the taxi guy) the window is open.

xx:xx:xx

Audio problem: When Buddy drives off from the monastery we see the wheels digging into the gravel, but the sound is that of burning rubber on asphalt.

xx:xx:xx

NancyFelix

Continuity mistake: When Buddy and Dave start running away in the monastery the monks are right behind them, running at the same speed. When they reach the car a few seconds later the monks are at least 100 meters away.

xx:xx:xx

NancyFelix

Other mistake: In the scene after Dave throws a calculator at a colleague there is a very weird 3-second establishing shot of his apartment building. In this short span shadows fall over the building twice, and it changes between fully lit and fully in the dark twice. In the end there is the silhouette of some equipment covering the lower third of the screen.

xx:xx:xx

NancyFelix

Continuity mistake: When Dave drives up the parking garage of the Yankee stadium we see him coming up the ramp to the upper level. Then the camera cuts to the side and he is seen passing by a row of parked cars which weren't there before, then it cuts back to his car still on the same ramp.

xx:xx:xx

NancyFelix

Continuity mistake: When Robert Merrill walks up to the microphone in the Yankee stadium it's fixed on a black stand. When Dave spots it we see a close-up where it's fixed on a silver stand. Later, when he snatches it away from Merrill it's on a black stand again.

xx:xx:xx

NancyFelix

Factual error: Near the end of the movie Dave is trying to get to the Yankee game before Buddy proposes to Linda. One of the shots before the game is of the grounds crew doing the YMCA. The grounds crew does the YMCA in the 7th inning.

ShooterMcGavin34

Continuity mistake: In the restaurant, before they get into the fight with the bald guy and the blind man, when they are sitting down, you see the same lady in a black miniskirt walk past John Turturro twice.

xx:xx:xx

Deliberate mistake: Near the end of the movie, in the Yankee Stadium scene, Adam Sandler sneaks onto the field. He then assaults a police officer and announcer who try to stop him. Rudolph Giuliani condones, even encourages Sandler's behavior. Giuliani acted entirely out of character, as he has an extensive history of being staunchly anti-petty crime and pro-police officer.

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: The cabin of the airplane is that of a 767. The shot of a flying plane that comes between pre and post take-off scenes is of a 737.

xx:xx:xx

Factual error: Adam Sandler's apartment is near the Brooklyn Bridge. His office is in downtown Manhattan since you can see Brooklyn Heights and the Brooklyn Queens Expressway from his boss's office. Jack Nicholson pulls the emergency brakes on the Queensboro bridge when they are heading to Sandler's office. You wouldn't take the Queensboro bridge to go from Brooklyn to downtown Manhattan.

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: In the Yankee Stadium scene, Adam Sandler has to kiss Marissa Tomei to get her to marry him. At first, she looks like she is a long way away but it takes only seconds for them to be right next to each other.

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: After Adam Sandler gets the brownies thrown at him by the girl in the red dress, you can see that there are brown spots all over his jacket. When we next see him, (in the scene with Jack Nickolson) there is no sign of there ever being any brownie on him at all.

Add time

Audio problem: When Dr. Buddy throws the CDs in the garbage, the sound effect is that of glass breaking, not plastic.
