Is this really an honest portrait of a beautiful and intense friendship between women? What's intense about it, or beautiful, or honest?

In the march to the end, "Miss You Already" grinds its gears through the late stages of cancer, following a predictable and cliche path. Each scene is a yank on the heartstrings, a poke in the tear ducts, its intents and machinations plainly obvious.

The film is a soulless parade of movie conventions and rote acting.

People say there aren't enough films made by women and about women, and that's true. Well this is one, and it's a damn good one.

It ends on a note of fluidity and grace that makes you wish it had been told with fewer frenetic rampages and less forced whimsy.

Hardwicke's willingness to get into the vomit, tears, and viscera of Milly's cancer treatments has a boldness and integrity to it. For better or worse, we're on this rollercoaster ride, too.

Barrymore and Collette bring life and charm to a screenplay that needs all the life and charm it can get.

A movie about love and loss that doesn't dissolve into soft focus when the hard parts start.

There are moments of uncomfortable reality, as well as moments of heartfelt beauty.

Milly's not always likeable and her narcissistic streak helps Miss You Already get to interesting places. Regrettably, that's derailed by frequent clichs.
