While director Nicole Kassall tried to create an independent female lead who doesn't give into stereotypes with Marley, the overall movie ultimately lacked originality, a memorable story and characters with any true purpose.

Sap without the weight of reality, awkwardly combined with a romance without much chemistry.

It's hard to develop much empathy for the characters in the final reel when everything leading to that point rings so emotionally false.

Although New Orleans sparkles as the film's setting, the story boasts too many moving and mismatched parts to resonate in any sort of meaningful way.

When a movie opens with a character telling you that love isn't important, that movie is definitely going to smack down that nonbeliever, because movies always believe love is important.

This movie turns into a total bummerfest that isn't sad enough to make me cry or funny enough to make me giggle.

Who knew dying could be such a laugh riot? Certainly not any of us who have actually watched a loved one in the awful final stages of cancer.

Gren Wells' screenplay throws around a few ideas about female independence and sexuality, but finally it's as shallow as it is mawkish.

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

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.
