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.

Hudson wastes her opportunity to add more depth to her acting CV, while Bernal is not the right fit as a romantic lead.

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

Kate Hudson's career suicide continues with the devastatingly unfunny, tonally jarring A Little Bit of Heaven.

Bernal who, physically, just looks rather mismatched next to Hudson on screen ... For such an accomplished actor, he just comes across as more 'dud than stud' in this.

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

Who's got time for bed-rest when there are hang-gliding lessons to be had?

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

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

Manages to be both weird and boring.

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.

A Little Bit Of Heaven makes you ask some really big questions. The biggest is why anyone involved in this film thought any of it was a good idea.

Rest assured I'm not going to give the game away as to whether Marley beats the disease. But given the movie's set in New Orleans - a place famous for its funerals - I wouldn't hold your breath.

As a cancer drama it is insultingly sickly sweet, as a comedy it's lazily written and executed, and as a romance it is void of chemistry and passion.

Peter Dinklage is the surprise package in this mash up . . . in which his role of an escort with a reputation to deliver 'a little bit of heaven' brings a welcome lift and unexpected honesty to a film that crumbles under its own weight and aspirations

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