The Angriest Man in Brooklyn Reviews

May 30, 2014
A schmaltz opera that indulges Robin Williams' most melancholy tics and themes.

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

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.

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.

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

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.

Phil Alden Robinson's overheated dramedy feels disconnected from reality in every emotional way, but at least he captures the impotent fury that hits everyone stuck in the wrong lane on Flatbush Ave.

As broad as Williams goes in these scenes, it's not really his fault. He's acting out a screenplay, credited to Daniel Taplitz, that's peppered with bad writerly flourishes.

[Williams] has played against type before, but his presence feels like epic miscasting in this underwritten dramedy ...

Mr. Williams' performance is so grating that you may find yourself more infuriated than amused.

It seems life is still unendurable for those who feel entitled to absolute comfort from it.
