Angriest Man in Brooklyn - DVD Review 3/5 stars

This one was a lot better than I thought it would be.  Certainly it wasn’t a great film, but it was enjoyable.  Robin Williams plays Henry Altmann, an angry man (who lives in Brooklyn) who is having a bad day and can’t help but take it out on everyone around him.   349 more words
