The first thing that comes to mind when I think "Falling Down" is the movie starring Michael Douglas. Douglas plays a middle-aged man dealing with both unemployment and divorce. William Foster (Michael Douglas) is having a bad day. When his car breaks down on a Los Angeles highway, he leaves his vehicle and begins a trek across the city to attend his daughter's birthday party. As he makes his way through the urban landscape, William's frustration and bitterness become more evident, resulting in violent encounters with various people, including a vengeful gang and a dutiful veteran cop (Robert Duvall).
It's been awhile since I've watched the movie, but it's a memorable one. I especially like the fast food restaurant scene where he wants breakfast and is informed that they stopped serving breakfast for the day. Pretty funny stuff. The movie came out in 1993, and if you haven't watched it, I recommend you do. Especially if you've ever had "one of those days."
