Movie Info

Some people have bad days. Henry Altmann (Williams) has one every day. Always unhappy and angry at the world including everyone in it, Henry sits impatiently at the doctor's office when he is finally seen by Dr. Sharon Gill (Kunis). Sharon, who is enduring her own bad day, reveals that Henry has a brain aneurysm. This news makes Henry even angrier, yelling at Sharon he demands to know how much time he has left. Faced with Henry's anger and insults, Sharon abruptly tells him he has only 90 minutes. Shocked and reeling by this news, Henry storms out of the office leaving Sharon stunned by what she has just done in a lapse of judgment.

Critic Reviews for The Angriest Man in Brooklyn

All Critics (30) | Top Critics (11)

A schmaltz opera that indulges Robin Williams' most melancholy tics and themes.

May 30, 2014 | Full Review…

The film never quite manages to figure out what it's actually about.

May 23, 2014 | Full Review…

Williams, of course, has been doing a gruff-turns-to-lovable schtick as opposed to any organic acting for more than half of his motion picture career, so his work here is what one might call dreadfully predictable.

May 23, 2014 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…

The movie is predictably sentimental at its root, but it's also meant to be comedy, partly resting on Mr. Williams's energetic but failed attempt to play a jerk.

May 22, 2014 | Full Review…

Every scene between two people comes off like drunkenly shot video of a play rehearsal gone horribly wrong.

May 22, 2014 | Full Review…

Considering its outlandish premise, what the film lacks are any outlandish scenes-or, if not outlandish, then at least ones in the realm of the creative.

Audience Reviews for The Angriest Man in Brooklyn

Interesting story of this comedy-drama directed by Phil Alden Robinson wasn't enough for a positive review. Even with stars like Robin Williams, Mila Kunis, Peter Dinklage and Melissa Leo, there was so much missing. The story follows a physician who accidentally tells her obnoxious patient that he has a brain aneurysm and has only 90 minutes to live. Of course, panicking, the guy is trying to right his wrongs, racing around the city. A remake of the 1997 Israeli film The 92 Minutes of Mr. Baum, written and directed by Assi Dayan, it had enough originality but lacked directing skills and direction, as well as rhythm and reality. I am glad that film lasted only 83 minutes, I am not sure that I could last a minute longer!

A simplistic comedy drama. Can't help but feel he is the male version of me! Love Robin williams and although not the finest movie he is still very talented!

Everyone has a bad day. Henry has one every day. A remake of the 1997 Israeli film, The 92 Minutes of Mr. Baum, 'The Angriest Man in Brooklyn' is a fairly entertaining film, that doesn't eat your brains. It begins well & maintains a certain pace till the end. Its never spectacular, but its never too bad, either. Quite simply put -- Some of it works, some of it doesn't. Robin Williams enacts 'The Angriest Man in Brooklyn', with effortless ease. The Oscar-Winning Actor doesn't miss a single beat. Mila Kunis is impressive. Peter Dinklage is superb, while Melissa Leo is her usual self. The Great James Earl Jones is hilarious in a cameo. Some people have bad days. Henry Altmann (Williams) has one every day. Always unhappy and angry at the world including everyone in it, Henry sits impatiently at the doctor's office when he is finally seen by Dr. Sharon Gill (Kunis). Sharon, who is enduring her own bad day, reveals that Henry has a brain aneurysm. This news makes Henry even angrier, yelling at Sharon he demands to know how much time he has left.
