  • Summary: Some people have bad days. Henry Altmann (Robin 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 (Mila 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. As Sharon goes on a city-wide search, Henry struggles with his diagnosis, determined to make amends with everyone he has hurt in his life. [Lionsgate] Expand

    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.

    The silliness of the conceit is far from the biggest problem in a picture that has no clue what to do with the wealth of talent in front of the camera.

    Much has changed in the two decades since the release of Joel Schumacher's Falling Down, but, as The Angriest Man in Brooklyn flatly reminds us, the grievances of America's petulant middle-class men apparently have not.

    Though much of the script borders on unbearable, compounded by “Juno” composer Mateo Messina’s tell-you-how-to-feel score, writer Daniel Taplitz manages to sneak in some poignant self-help aphorisms here and there.

    Robin Williams once again proves he can insufferably crank the energy to 11 without batting an eye, only this time his frenzied comic demeanor is replaced with equally harried contempt.

    It all leads up to some very bad green-screen work depicting a dangerous traipse around the Brooklyn Bridge, and reaches a sort of epiphany with a view of a floating carousel. Yes. It is very much that kind of movie.

    Phil Alden Robinson’s overheated dramedy feels disconnected from reality in every emotional way.

    The Angriest Man in Brooklyn isn't that unique nor so original, instead it is a heartwarming movie that reflects the importance of families, friends and how your actions change others' feelings towards you. So it this type of movie, a 78 minutes of those messages, some giggles, but excellent performances. Nothing extraordinary, but typical and forgettable. Expand

    The Angriest Man in Brooklyn made us angry for wasting our time watching this appallingly lousy film which is in bad taste throughout. It is not a comedy since there are no laughs. It is not a drama, there is none. It is loaded with offensive, foul language which serves no purpose. The point of the film might have been to live life to the fullest. It did not come near making that point properly. On the contrary, it made the point that one would be better off never to watch such horrible mess of a film. Expand

    Very bad writing, one dimensional characters, and a huge pile of over acting. Not worth a second of anyone's time. I pity anyone that took part in this film, and I shun the writer and the director. Expand
