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

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

    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. show more

    Frank Scheck The Hollywood Reporter

    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. show more

    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. show more

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

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

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

    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. show more

    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. show more

    Really liked this movie. Cant believe critics panned it. You can never listen to them!

    I can\'t see how the critic score is so low. This movie really touched my heart. It was a comedy about a sad situation. I appreciate that.

    If you love New Orleans watch this movie, beautifully showcases the uptown area, and then makes you sob....
