"The Angriest Man in Brooklyn" movie quotes follow one man who tries to right all the wrongs he did in life in a span of 90 minutes. The comedy-drama, which is a remake of a 1997 Israeli film titled "The 92 Minutes of Mr. Baum," was written by Assi Dayan and Daniel Taplitz. Directed by Phil Alden Robinson, "The Angriest Man in Brooklyn" opened on May 23, 2014.

In "The Angriest Man in Brooklyn," the title character of Henry Altmann (Robin Williams) is perpetually angry at the world and everything in it. Dr. Sharon Gill (Mila Kunis) is also angry, but only briefly after an unfortunate morning. So after Henry is in a car crash and the two meet in a hospital, their chance encounter changes Henry's life forever.

See Dr. Gill found that Henry had a brain aneurysm and in a moment of anger, falsely tells Henry that he has just 90 minutes to live. This sends Henry on a journey to reconcile with his wife (Melissa Leo), brother (Peter Dinklage), son (Hamish Linklater) and friends (including Richard Kind). But when Sharon wants to come clean and help save Henry's life, finding him, admitting what she did and keeping him calm enough not to hurt that aneurysm, is not going to be easy.

"The Angriest Man in Brooklyn" has steep competition at the box office including from films such as "Blended," "X-Men: Days of Future Past," "The Immigrant," "Million Dollar Arm," "Godzilla," "Palo Alto," "Chef," "Legends of Oz: Dorothy's Return Movie Quotes," "Neighbors," "Moms' Night Out," "Devil's Knot," "Belle," "Walk of Shame," "The Amazing Spider-Man 2," "Locke," "Brick Mansions," "The Other Woman," "Transcendence," "A Haunted House 2," "Heaven is for Real," and "Draft Day"
