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

Could've gone in style
7 December 2014 | by See all my reviews

But you never know what your final movies are going to be ... the same goes for Robin Williams. It's almost cynical, considering what his character has to go through in this one. And while the movie itself is not really deserving the 7/10 I give him, it's the actors that make this and elevate this higher than it's supposed to be. Williams giving it his best shot, supported by everyone else.

Is it almost unbelievable and unreal? Yes indeed it is. And even on a worst day (doctor or patient), you couldn't imagine something like that happening. Even if, the ensuing madness would never occur. But that is why this is a movie. It heightens things that are probable in real life and takes them to a whole new level.
