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?")
