Customer Reviews

Robin Williams and Mila Kunis were a great combination together.
Cory
No point watching this movie...slow, boring, and none of the actors really want to be in it.

While it is slow, seeing Williams one last time on the screen is worth it.

A very poignant movie given Robin Williams' recent death, as the story revolves around a day in the life of Henry Altmann (Robin Williams) who's facing his own death. Henry is an angry, bitter middle-aged man who's just been given a grim medical diagnosis by Dr. Sharon Gill (Mila Kunis). Shocked, Henry berates a burned-out and disenchanted Dr. Gill, insisting she tell him exactly how much longer he as to live. In frustration and glancing around her office, she blurts out "90 minutes!" which is actually how long the cover of a magazine tells her it takes to baste a turkey breast. Dismayed, Henry storms out and must decide how to spend what he thinks are the last 90 minutes of his life. Meanwhile, Dr. Gill realizes her malpractice and pursues Henry, always one step behind, in an attempt to rectify her negligence and maybe even her life. Anyone who's contemplated their own life, death and regrets will relate to the movie's insightful and touching moments. The story is a compelling one, and Robin Williams does a lot with a less than perfect script. The movie contains some off-color language that is emotionally appropriate in several scenes, but in others seems gratuitous. Overall, the movie is often funny and it's message is positive and uplifting.

Hollywood always tries and puts out the best clips for trailers. I was excited for this movie, from the first time I seen one. Its unfortunate that this won't be in theaters, nationwide, but just as well will be well received on demand and on the internet.

This movie answers the question that we all have been asked: What would you do if you knew you were going to die.
The answer is well written, in the movie, in an epiphany type of moment.

Its a great ensemble cast, that compliment each other, and I would definitely suggest taking 90 minutes to watch this movie.

Amazon wouldn't let me but I'd give it 3 1/2 starts, not the 4 that shows.

The movie is cute, at best. With excellent acting throughout. While the movie is rarely funny--nothing like other Robin Williams movies--its message is a good one. While it is slow, seeing Williams one last time on the screen is worth it.

Williams' character is not at all the likable, lovable, unpredictable, FUNNY guy that he was in SO MANY other films--and in real life. I cannot help but wonder if this movie is a reflection of what was going on his mind. Weirdly appropriate.

Writing this after the death of Williams, a comedic god among men, I can't help feeling like perhaps this movie's message somehow resonated with Williams. It's a good one: You don't live forever. Make your relationships right.

I am not going to remember Robin Williams for this movie, but I will ALWAYS remember him for the HITS he made when he was happier, healthier, and a light among mankind. From Mrs. Doubtfire to Good Morning Vietnam to Jumanji to Birdcage to Hook to Good Will Hunting to Alladin--the list goes on and on. He made children and adults laugh and cry and FEEL life more than they did before watching his films, comedy specials, and interviews.

This movie is not a hit, but Williams always will be. REST IN PEACE, comedy god. :(

People who hated this: have you no soul?? I could barely contain my emotions during the scene where he and his son dance on the bridge. I can tell if a movie will be good within the first scene. I found the first scene to the last incredibly touching and well done. Yes, you have to suspend disbelief a little that he would believe what the doctor said but that is minor. I thought Robin Williams was brilliant and VERY three dimensional and deep in this role. He developed the character so well. Mila Kunis did a great job as well. She brought depth to her character. I actually could feel what the characters were feeling. The desperation in Williams's character was palatable. I could feel what he was feeling in many scenes. The one where he meets up with his friend from childhood was well done. Everyone saying "It wasn't funny" is mistaken. I never got the idea that this was intended as a comedy. Where is everyone getting that idea?? It really made me think and feel. Loved it.

Robin Williams is at his prime in this movie. That man constantly amazes me with his "multi-personalites" he can portray is different roles. This is definatley one worth watching.

The Angriest Man in Brooklyn is sad. It's not an easy movie on the emotions, especially after Robin Williams' death. Mila Kunis, to me, showed a whole new side. In this movie, she's a pill popping resident who can't take Robin Williams' attitude and tells him he has 90 minutes before a brain aneurysm kills him. Once he leaves, she's immediately remorseful and heads out into New York City to find him and get him back into the hospital.

There is lots of swearing. If you can't take bad language, don't watch the movie. There were times I wondered how much of this felt autobiographical to Robin Williams, but only he knows. His performance is definitely emotional, especially as he sets off to find his adult son. Peter Dinklage and Melissa Leo have smaller parts as his brother and wife, respectively.

This isn't a comedy, which I think many people were expecting of Williams. It's a drama and one that definitely had me in tears and choked up. Especially at the end, but I won't go into that because it would be a spoiler. Watch it and have Kleenex ready for this heartfelt, emotional, and honest look at life, love, and family.
