Storyline

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. 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. Written by Lionsgate

A melancholy, yet perhaps appropriate end
20 August 2014 | by (Tucson) – See all my reviews

It's hard to know what to make of this film. It's rather too New York, too argumentative, and too profane for my taste. It probably succeeds on some level, but only because Hollywood sets the bar so low. It's certainly not Robin Williams's best work, nor Dan Taplitz's. It has Taplitz's usual themes of family and faith -- yet falls far short of Chaos Theory, and certainly Commandments, an absolute gem of a film. Yet it has a strange appeal. I'll certainly keep it in my library.

I lived on Clement Street in San Francisco when Robin performed at some club there in the seventies. I Never did make it in to see him. In fact, I didn't even know he was there and couldn't have afforded such extravagances if I had known.

Anyway, given Robin's unfortunate exit, the film has an unintended impact, leaving one feeling both melancholy and yearning for his character. But, of course, the actors were all professionals, just reading there lines. Right? The good news -- as was typical of Mr. Williams -- is that he appeared to give an actor named Mila Kunis room to shine, and she shone brightly and quite carried the film. Perhaps somewhere Robin's sitting on a cloud, looking down and shouting, "Nice work, kid."
