What Happened To 'The Angriest Man In Brooklyn'?


Mila Kunis Robin Williams Peter Dinklage Louis C.K. Phil Alden Robinson

It had the promise to be a supremely enjoyable farcical comedy, yet The Angriest Man In Brooklyn has positively bombed across the board, receiving a paltry 13% on Rotten Tomatoes.

No such luck here, but this latter-day WarGames is an all-out riot.
