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

Kate Hudson dies prettily in this tone-deaf dramedy about a woman finding love while suffering from colon cancer.

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.

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.

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

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.

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

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.

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

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.

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

Colon cancer isn't a great pretext for uplift or an occasion for Bucket List-style hang gliding, snappy dream-sequence banter with Whoopi Goldberg as God and a brief comic bit featuring Peter Dinklage as an escort.

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

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

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