Last night my daughter talked me in to watching The Angriest Man in Brooklyn. It was funny and at ttimes touching,and I loved the cast (Mila Kunis, Melissa Leo, Peter Dinklage, Hamish Linklater, among others). I'd say it's worth watching if you like those actors and enjoy stories that treat serious subjects with humor. Mila Kunis' performance was especially good.

My one caution is that Robin Williams plays the lead, and at one point his character attempts suicide (not whited for spoiler because it's easily guessed from context). I personally didn't find it disturbing, because I wasn't identifying the character with the actor that closely, and because the circumstances weren't at all similar. But I imagine will put some people off the film entirely. In fact, I'm surprised my daughter, after watching it alone, wasn't upset, let alone that she wanted to see it again.
