EVERYONE HAS A BAD DAY. HENRY HAS ONE EVERY DAY.
When the hot-tempered Henry Altmann (Robin Williams) is told that he has a brain aneurysm, he provokes the exhausted doctor (Mila Kunis) to the degree that she tells him he only has 90 minutes left to live. This remake of the Israeli movie The 92 Minutes of Mr. Baum (1997) became one of Williams’s last projects and its mix of comedy and darkness is true to his sentiment. Emotional at times, but the comedy is uneven and leads us to absurd, frantic scenes that prevent us from developing enough empathy for Williams and Kunis’s characters, even though they try hard.
