The Angriest Man in Brooklyn

Robin Williams is the ill-tempered Henry Altmann in this comedy, panicking under the belief that he has 90 minutes to live. Co-stars Mila Kunis, Peter Dinklage, James Earl Jones and Academy Award winner Melissa Leo.

Living day after day in constant unhappiness, Henry takes his anger out on Dr. Sharon Gill (Kunis) who just informed him that he has a brain aneurysm. When pestering her about how much time he has left, the highly irritated doctor reaches tipping point, blurting out a brief death sentence. But before Dr. Gill reviews her lapse of judgement, Henry bursts out of the door in an attempt to make amends with the people he has wronged in his life.

Directed by Phil Alden Robinson (Field of Dreams), his first feature since 2002's The Sum of All Fears. Based on the Hebrew-language film Mar Baum (1997).

Variety

Variety

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

The New York Times

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.
