In Anger Management, Sheen stars as "Charlie," a non-traditional therapist specializing in anger management. Selma Blair, Shawnee Smith, Daniela Bobadilla, Michael Arden, and Noureen DeWulf co-star. He has a successful private practice, holding sessions with his group of primary patients each week, as well as performing pro bono counseling for an inmate group at a state prison.
This is one of the worst show I have ever seen. The initial plot was actually pretty good, the idea of an anger management therapist offers so many opportunities for comedy. But the execution completely failed. The characters are too stereotypical to be funny. And the storylines are unoriginal. But the worst thing about this show is Charlie Sheen, his acting is horrible and he always appears drunk. The writers of the show clearly wanted to make the character seem like an eligible bachelor by having him sleep with numerous girls in every episode.
But while watching Charlie Sheen pretending to be a licensed therapist and a good father was still laughable, seeing a jaded fifty year old drunk hitting on giggling twenty year olds just made me want to cry.
This new Charlie surprises us all by sobering up and only sleeping with one hooker per episode. Kidding! He drinks nonstop and has gang bangs regularly. Gotcha! The series is actually a lot of fun and all of the characters are likeable, though sometimes too over-the-top bordering on annoying. It sticks with the typical Two & a Half Men misogynistic humor, but that's what Sheen does best.
Is this Anger Management for or with Charlie Sheen?
He is playing himself again, but he did it better in "Two and a half men". He's a man-whore, drinking and fornicating and at the same time a couselor for a never changing group of people.
It is ok to watch it from time to time. You will not miss anything important if you let a few slip through, and my counsel is - find something better.
