This sweet, at times heartbreaking friendship story is worth being seen.

You'll need to take a medium size box of tissues for Miss You Already.

The narrative milestones of Milly's cancer - including head-shaving and chemo-induced puking - are well worn in cinema, yet it's the stale and predictable trajectory of this fictional friendship which really offends.

Ultimately, Miss You Already has a talented cast that is able to sustain the general momentum and tone of the film.

Barrymore and Collette often seem like they're fighting with the tacky material, but it's a fight they ultimately win; however many times you roll your eyes at Jess and Milly, you can't help but get caught up in their tearjerker of a story.

Catherine Hardwicke's comedy drama could be filed under that cringeworthy industry category, "chick flick"... But the two leads are the no-nonsense Drew Barrymore and there is a waspish script by Morwenna "Absolutely" Banks in its favour.

As a pure tearjerker, it gets the job done, and the movie's final half hour is a masterclass in weepy conclusions.

A lackluster reboot of chick flick extraordinaire Beaches. I kept waiting for "Wind Beneath My Wings" to start playing. Alas, it never did.

Across the board, the performances are terrific: superbly understated and fabulously real.

As much as I disliked Miss You Already, I have to admit that I was rather taken with Barrymore's performance as Jess.

There is nothing apologetic about the way [Catherine] Hardwicke depicts Milly's vanity and neediness. The Twilight director delivers a realistic portrait of someone who fears losing everything.

Bring your tissues and your bestie along for this raw yet beautiful film -- it's one you shouldn't miss.

Miss You Already is commendably brave in its unsweetened depiction of cancer, and in fact this is probably the most honest depiction of the disease I can remember seeing in a cinema.
August 22, 2016
Barrymore and Collette bring their 'A' game, while Hardwicke's stewardship is gloriously strong.
July 11, 2016
You can see it all coming, but it's wonderful.

Miss You Already is a small step up from a TV disease-movie-of-the-week, due purely to the forceful performance of Toni Collette as Millie, a successful PR executive with a hip musician husband and young kids who discovers she has breast cancer.

Milly is no saint, but she grows on you.

By the end, even the hardest of hearts will find it difficult to hold back the tears.
February 20, 2016
Miss You Already recontextualizes beats of the cancer movie sub-genre into a story about the bulletproof power of female friendship.
January 11, 2016
A film that doesn't have a perfect story but achieves its goal of showing real life in a moving way without being preachy. [Full review in Spanish]
