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 Bad Day in a Bad Movie
11 August 2014 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

The grumpy Henry Altmann (Robin Williams) has been a man full of hatred since his older son died. He goes to the hospital for a medical consultation but his doctor is not in the office and the intern Dr. Sharon Gill (Mila Kunis) comes to see him. She brings his tomography and discloses to him that he has a brain aneurysm. The angry Henry cries out loud at Dr. Gill, who is having a bad day, demanding to know how much time he still has left. Dr. Gill reacts and tells him that he has only 90 minutes. Henry leaves the hospital and decides to make amends with his wife Bette (Melissa Leo), with his brother Aaron (Peter Dinklage) and with his estranged son Tommy (Hamish Linklater). Meanwhile Dr. Gill realizes that she made a huge mistake but soon she is informed how serious Henry's aneurysm is. She decides to seek Henry out on the streets of New York. Will Henry have time to fix his life?

With the sad news Robin Williams was found dead in his home in possible suicide, I decided to see his last feature. "The Angriest Man in Brooklyn" ironically shows the last days of an unpleasant character performed by Robin Williams. Unfortunately it is not a good movie, alternating a few insane moments that become funny and make laugh with a heavy and corny family drama wasting a great cast with Robin Williams, Mila Kunis, Melissa Leo and Peter Dinklage. My vote is four.

Title (Brazil): "O Que Fazer?" ("What to Do?")
