Almost constant shouting, raging, and arguing. A man is diagnosed with brain aneurysm and has only short time to live. There was a car crash and two high - speed car chases. In a flashback, MAN gets news that his oldest son has die. Man jumps off BROOKLYN Bridge in suicide attempt. The cat jumps out window and is said to have die. A man is sprayed with a mace. One brief but graphic sex scene, with a woman leaning over the foreground and a MAN thrusting behind. Her Her MAN makes climaxing noises at the end. No nudity is shown during this scene. Character talks extensively about making love to his wife, with references to getting it up, though nothing is show. Oral sex is reference; additional sex talk. A man's wife admits to having an affair with another MAN. Parents need to know that while the ANGRIEST MAN in BROOKLYN is center on worthwhile message - pay attention to what matters in life before it is too late - it is ultimately an anxious, exhausting viewing experience. Much of that is thanks to constant strong language; it angry, frustrated swearing that includes f - k, s - t, and much more. The major character pops pills to deal with stress, and characters accuse her of being a stone. She also has fairly graphic sex with her boss; while no nudity is on display, sound and positioning make it very risque. There are also some car chases, death,ss and suicide attempts. But movie could still spark discussions about what is really important and what you would do if you only had 90 minutes left. Henry Altmann is really angry. A typical bad day in BROOKLYN starts off when a cab crashes into his car, but things get much worse when he goes to the doctor. His regular physician is out, and young substitute, Sharon Gill - who been popping pills to deal with stress - tells Henry that he has brain aneurysm and has only 90 minutes to live. Henry tries to decide what to do with his final hour and half and realizes what a mess he made of his relationships with his brother, his wife, and his son. When all his plans to put things right fail, he heads toward BROOKLYN Bridge to jump. But Sharon is hot on his trail and hopes to set things right. Amazingly, ANGRIEST MAN in BROOKLYN is the first film in 12 years by director Phil Alden Robinson, Of Field Of Dreams and Sneakers; sadly, his return lands with a crashing thud. The storyline is old and stale, and, rather than finding a fresh angle, it seems force. The movie feels more like it is stalling for time rather than filling itself with humanity and redemption. And actors earn our pity rather than our sympathy. Williams does his very best in his role, but both his tantrums and his heartstrings are play off key.

Plot

Henry Altmann is stuck in Brooklyn traffic while on his way to a doctor's appointment. His car is suddenly struck by a taxi, which propels him into a rage which he unleashes upon the taxi driver. Henry goes to Brooklyn hospital, where Dr. Sharon Gill is covering for his usual doctor, with whom she is having an affair. After examining scans of his brain, Sharon informs Henry that he has brain aneurysm and his outlook is bad. Henry erupts, throwing insults at Sharon and demanding that she tell him how long he has to live. She tries to dodge question, but Henry is persistent. Panicking, Sharon tells him that he will die in ninety minutes. Henry leaves hospital in a rage. Sharon talks with another doctor and realizes the consequences of her actions; She will surely be fired and lose her license. Sharon resolved to find Henry and put him into immediate care. Henry arrives at the family law firm Of Altmann, and storms into a meeting between his brother Aaron and several older clients. He asked what a hypothetical client with only ninety minutes to live should do,. They replied that the client should make love to his wife one last time. Henry then decides to run home to see his estranged wife, Bette, only to find that she is having an affair with their neighbor. Meanwhile, Sharon learns Henry's case is serious enough that he could potentially die at any minute. Sharon arrives at Henry's office, where she tells Aaron of his brother's diagnosis. Aaron tells her that Henry was once a kind, happy man, but became embittered after the death of his son, Peter, two years prior. Meanwhile, Henry makes more stops on his quest for redemption, including attempting to contact his surviving son, Tommy. Henry disapproves of his son's choice to become a professional dancer, creating a rift between them. He makes a recording in which he tells Tommy he loves him, but flies into rage halfway through and passes out. When he regains consciousness, he go to Brooklyn Bridge, intent on jumping into the East River. Sharon finds him there and apologizes for her earlier behavior, admitting she has no idea when he might die. Sharon begs him not to jump, saying that her career and, by extent, her life will be over if he does. Henry still leaps off the Bridge, however, and Sharon runs from the Bridge down to the river where she goes into the water after him and drag him to shore. Henry realizes what he has become and asks Sharon to help him make things right with his family. Checking Sharon's watch, he saw that he had only nineteen minutes left. Sharon hailed a cab, driven by the same cabbie who hit Henry that morning. The Cabbie and Henry begin to argue, but Sharon comes between two men with a bottle of pepper spray, momentarily blinding the driver so that the pair can take off in his cab.
