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

Mixed emotions about this one
7 April 2015 | by (Pennsylvania, United States) – See all my reviews

I wish I would have seen this before Robin died. I think a lot of my feelings about this movie were colored by his untimely death. I tried very hard to watch it with an open mind, looking at it from the perspective that he was still alive. I failed miserably.

The concept of the movie was an interesting take on an old question: what would you do if you knew you only had so much time to live? This put a whole new spin on the question, but the outcome was relatively the same.

The cast was an unusual choice, in my opinion. Robin Williams was well known for being able to play a wide array of characters, from the brilliantly funny to the downright broken. This character was oddly complex. But again, maybe that's just me reading into it because of Robin's death.

Ironically, one of the funniest scenes in the movie is the last scene, in which Robin's character is absent. In all, it was a fairly good movie that made me laugh and cry, and not necessarily at the points where you're supposed to laugh or cry. And it really made me miss the genius actor even more.
