A Little Bit Of Heaven

Kate Hudson and Gael García Bernal star in this New Orleans-set love story, about a young woman dying of cancer who falls in love with her doctor. From the director of The Woodsmen.

"Marley (Hudson) is young, beautiful, and wildly funny, but she's afraid of opening herself up to true love and commitment. Though she uses her humor to prevent matters from getting serious, a life-changing visit to her doctor (Gael Garcia Bernal) sends both of them on an eye-opening adventure of mutual discovery, leading to revelations neither thought possible."

Jaw-droppingly mawkish and offensively trivial about confronting one's mortality.

A Little Bit of Heaven demands miracles of its cast to keep proceedings from becoming grindingly mawkish, and does not get them.

A film this poorly conceived and executed can’t help but reveal its own status as dead on arrival...

About as morbid and schlocky a romcom as you can imagine.

A cynical affair only suited to those who like a cheap, forgettable weep.

As embodied with clueless good humor by Kate Hudson, fatal sickness looks more like a lifestyle and wardrobe choice than a tragedy.

In the long history of bad movies about bad illnesses, A Little Bit of Heaven just might be the worst.

Kate Hudson, whose career has been sputtering on life support for years, plays a terminal patient in this droolingly stupid weepie.

Genuinely poignant weepie bolstered by a top-drawer cast.

Repellently sentimental and sickly-sweet.

It's as shallow as it is mawkish.

Bravely or stupidly, both A Little Bit Of Heaven and its heroine charge on as if the introduction of terminal cancer didn't change things that much.
