The Angriest Man in Brooklyn is a comedy-drama film that was released in 2014. The movie stars Robin Williams, Mila Kunis, and Peter Dinklage, and was directed by Phil Alden Robinson. The story is centered around Henry Altmann (Robin Williams) who is arguably the angriest man in Brooklyn. He is a bitter and cynical individual who is constantly angry at the world and the people around him. His anger is attributed to a difficult childhood and a history of various disappointments and setbacks in his life.

One day, Henry goes to see Dr. Sharon Gill (Mila Kunis) for a routine check-up. During his visit, he learns that he has a brain aneurysm and has only 90 minutes to live. This news triggers an even deeper rage in Henry, and he storms out of the clinic without letting the doctor explain anything to him.

Dr. Gill then spends the rest of the movie trying to track down Henry and convince him to return to the hospital for further examination. She teams up with Henry's estranged wife (Melissa Leo) and his brother (Peter Dinklage) to try and find him before it's too late.

The rest of the movie follows a frantic race against time as Dr. Gill and company try to locate Henry and get him back to the hospital. Along the way, they encounter a variety of obstacles and challenges, from car accidents to protests and even a run-in with the police.

Throughout the movie, we get to see glimpses of Henry's troubled past and come to understand why he is so angry and resentful towards the world. We also see how his interactions with Dr. Gill and his loved ones begin to soften him and prompt him to confront some of the unresolved issues in his life.

One of the standout performances of the movie is by Williams, who delivers a searing portrayal of a man consumed by anger and bitterness. He brings a depth and complexity to the character that makes us empathize with him even as he lashes out at those around him.

Kunis is also excellent as Dr. Gill, bringing a warmth and compassion to the role that helps to balance out Henry's rage. She and Williams share some truly heartfelt scenes together that showcase their chemistry and the depth of their characters' relationship.

Dinklage, as Henry's brother, brings some much-needed humor to the proceedings. His snarky one-liners and deadpan delivery provide some comic relief amidst the tension and drama.

Overall, The Angriest Man in Brooklyn is a poignant and entertaining movie that explores themes of family, forgiveness, and redemption. It's a fitting tribute to the late Robin Williams' talents and a testament to the power of human connection and compassion.

The Angriest Man in Brooklyn is a 2014 drama with a runtime of 1 hour and 23 minutes. It has received poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 5.7 and a MetaScore of 21.
