More Info:
  • Emma Dibdin

    While the marriage of fluffy comedy and terminal illness was always going to be an uncomfortable one, this is an understated, genuinely poignant weepie bolstered by a top-drawer cast.

    You should know right up front that even if you realize you're being manipulated you are probably going to weep anyway.

  • James Berardinelli

    What's missing is honesty. It has been supplanted by artifice.

  • Stephanie Zacharek

    The tiniest bit of Hudson's wrinkly-crinkly cuteness goes a long way, and in A Little Bit of Heaven, watching her waste away becomes slow torture. She's like an adorbs Camille.

  • Sheri Linden

    The movie perks up during Dinklage's scene as an escort, and screeches to a painful halt for a few conversations with God, who's played by a cloud-roosting Whoopi Goldberg. In a sophomore letdown from "The Woodsman," director Nicole Kassell gives the film no energy or rhythm, while the script pushes all the pre-set buttons.

  • Mick LaSalle

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

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Andrew Schenker

    Unsurprisingly for a film detailing terminal disease, this is a largely solemn affair, often verging on morbidity in its elongated deathwatch.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Keith Phipps

    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.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Frank Scheck

    An awkward mixture of melodrama and whimsical romantic comedy that should make the briefest of appearances in theaters before, like its main character, moving on to other planes. It might serve a valuable purpose if it at least prompts viewers to finally schedule those long delayed colonoscopies.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Mary Elizabeth Williams

    A moment of silence, please, for Kate Hudson's career. Full Review
  • Randy Cordova

    There is nothing the slightest bit heavenly about this project, which is wrong-headed in just about every department.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Ben Kenigsberg

    Cringeworthy feel-good weepie, which finds Kate Hudson's vivacious ad-pitch whiz questioning her life choices after being diagnosed with terminal colon cancer.

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • Leslie Felperin

    An only fitfully convincing Hudson leads a strong-on-paper cast, but most of the actors look uncomfortable here, particularly Gael Garcia Bernal as her love interest.

    Variety Full Review
  • Peter Bradshaw

    This film is one long biopsy of pure horror: the tumours of sentimentality and bad acting metastasise everywhere, and Bernal, in particular, is horrendously bad.

    The Guardian Full Review
  • Lisa Schwarzbaum

    Terminal colon cancer has never looked more fetching than in the critically ill romantic-disease comedy A Little Bit of Heaven.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Nick Pinkerton

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

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    Droolingly stupid weepie. Useful tip: The movie dies way quicker than she does.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Lou Lumenick

    With the abysmal A Little Bit of Heaven, Kate Hudson's possibly unprecedented losing streak remains unbroken: She hasn't made a good movie since Almost Famous, 12 long years ago. Even Nicolas Cage can't say that.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Manohla Dargis

    A cringe-inducing romantic comedy turned cancer tragedy turned inspirational hosanna about living in the moment, embracing your bliss and other clichés.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Steven Rea

    As far as director Nicole Kassell and writer Gren Wells are concerned, the C in Big C must stand for cute. The film reaches into the pits of moviegoing hell when it finds Marley on a celestial white couch, ringed in billowing white curtains, communing with God. And God is embodied by Whoopi Goldberg.
