Movie Info

Insurance investigator Abraham Holt (Forest Whitaker) travels to a tiny town in rural Minnesota to look into a particularly unusual insurance claim stemming from a horrific car accident. As Holt examines the scene of the wreck, it all seems a bit too perfect. And when he interviews Isold Mcbride (Julia Stiles) and her shifty husband, Fred (Jeremy Renner) -- the impoverished beneficiaries of the massive, recently initiated life-insurance policy -- he begins to suspect that something is amiss.

Critic Reviews for A Little Trip to Heaven

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (1) | Fresh (2) | Rotten (4)

  • Kormakur, who directed and co-wrote the script with Edward Martin Weinman, falls short in the story department and even shorter in evoking the droll, twisted humor that must carry the day.

    November 4, 2006
  • The director also has a strong visual sense, turning the barren wastelands of Minnesota into the visual equivalent of the Reagan era of corporate greed in which the story is set.

  • ...needlessly arty...

    November 4, 2006 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…
  • This is a very dark, very pretty picture (photographed by ttar Gunason) that has little else to offer, and its ending, at least for my taste, was a little corny.

    November 4, 2006
  • A stylish film that captures the bleak gloom of a desolate town and contrasts it with a satire of insurance commercials that concentrate on happy, sunny days -- not the ones that require insurance

    November 4, 2006 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • The pacing makes you feel like you're trudging through the snow.

    It was OK.Nothing special

    The crash scene at the end of this movie is in itself worth watching, best stunt I have ever seen. The film is about the best suspense film I have seen in some time. Forest Whitaker keeps popping up in these unheard of films. Julia Stiles plays the abused female and does a excellent job of it. Child Actor Alfred Harnsworth reached the top of the peak in this one. It will keep you on the very edge of your seat, you will not get up or walk away from this one. 4 Stars reaching for 5

    Cast: Maria Fernandez Ache, Karl Anton Leigh, Peter Coyote, Forest Whitaker, Juan Carlos Pardo Pardo, Damon Younger, Jeremy Renner, Joanna Scanlan, Julia Stiles, Alfred Harmsworth, Philip Jackson, Anne Reid, Phyllida Law Director: Baltasar Kormákur Summary: When a claim is sought on the million-dollar life insurance policy of notorious con artist Kelvin Anderson, crack investigator Holt is assigned to uncover the truth in Baltasar Kormakur crime noir. Holt (Forest Whitaker) suspects deceit from the get-go, and he stealthily tries to uncover the truth from Kelvin's sister Isold (Julia Stiles) and her erratic husband, Fred (Jeremy Renner). My Thoughts: "The movie wasn't very good. I mean it was a decent suspense film, just not very interesting. I thought the brother and sister scamming was more interesting then the insurance fraud. The acting by Julia was good, Whitaker's Irish accent through me off. I am not sure if it was good or ridiculous, or why he needed the accent in the first place. I'm leaning more towards ridiculous. I did enjoy the look of the film. The scenery and the depressing gloom of it. Especially that great creepy house. But besides those things, the film was a sleeper for me."

    *Yawn* Dont waste your time watching this, even though its a short movie. Its just boring and not at all moving or thought provoking. Just blah. Nothing outstanding about this movie, thats for sure.
