We have taken some photos of "A Little Bit of Heaven". They represent actual movie quality.
I will be totally honest but maybe sound a bit harsh(not intended), butthis has to be the worst I have cancer movies I have ever seen with theworst acting as well, Kate Hudson plays a good b**** and should stickto that role like the movie she has done Bride Wars.She did not make mefeel sorry for her in this movie and this movie did not make me getteary as other " cancer" movies have. I think producers should stayaway from the whole cancer movies scene as it has been done way toomany times now and is getting old and people don't want to watchsomeone dying and in pain from cancer on a movie as I am sure nowadaysthey have known someone with this awful disease or whom have died, lastthing we need to see is more of these movies so if you big shotproducers cannot come up with something new other then the same thingthen simply don't make more of the same garbage. If your a person whowants to see a movie like this then try watching, My Sisters Keeper,AWalk to Remember, or November Christmas.
OMG, what a load of rubbish. If your a man, do not watch this.Wife wanted to watch it so I sat through it nodding off every now andthen. I would have never watched it till the end, if I was not such agood guy and was not willing to suffer for the sake of my marriage onceand a while.Maybe men who like to watch Friends or Sex and the city might likethis, but not normal men.I did not know anything about this movie before I started watching itbut I guessed in my mind that it must be written and directed by awomen. I was right.Would I pay money to watch this? Not one cent! Would I watch it if Iwas paid to watch it? Maybe for a hundred euros but not any less.
Okay, I have read the other reviews of this movie, and I must say, Ithink the women are much more on base than the men. I believe the othermen who have reviewed this, have some issues with what the world callsa chick flick... A Little Bit of Heaven, in my opinion as man, wasactually the perfect blend of humor and drama, Kate Hudson's finestwork that I have seen to date. Its a story of an individuals ups anddowns of coping with death at a very young age. I felt this movieshowed both the attempts to stay positive an upbeat as well as what Iam sure happens, the anger to the people around you. For the reviewswho gave this anything less than 6 minimum, but then rate "The OtherGuys" a perfect 10, shows you they are just shallow. I am a father of 4daughters, and can't imagine what it would of be like to go throughsomething like this. I would recommend this movie to all, minus themen, who think they are too cool or tough to show a little emotion, asthis movie in my opinion will bring tears to anyone...
This is by far the best film I have seen and I hope a lot more peopleget to watch it. I cried for most of the film as it is really sad, butthere are some really funny parts to the film. I think the ending wasthe saddest ending in a film that I have seen since titanic. It wouldof been nice if the film was a bit longer and showed you more of Marleyand Julian together and it would of been nice if they got married. Ithink nearly everyone can relate to this film even thought I don'tthink it was bast on a true story , you can really feel for Marley andJulian as I am sure a lot of us have been thought or going thought whatthe film is about. I don't want to say to much about the film and havea big spoiler as its one of them film you should not watch the trailerto, as its such a good film that you just want to watch from the startand you don't know what is going to happen. over all this is a 10 outof 10 and the best film I have seen.
Okay...here goes. This certainly wasn't the worst movie I've ever seen.But it certainly wasn't the best, either. Essentially, it fell short.And that's the problem -- when a movie tries to tackle something asfundamental as death, when it falls short it's much more noticeable.And while this film had its moments, it never really came together. Itrelied too heavily on sentimentality, rather than really carving outany new emotional ground. Consequently, at times it felt contrived, attimes it dragged, and the ending just seemed to paint a nice littlesmiley face, without ever really resolving anything. I expectedsomething much more powerful; instead, it was like that feeling you geta couple of hours after eating a Chinese dinner (i.e. not reallysatisfied). Or maybe a better example would be those game shows thatshow a person inside a booth with lots of money blowing around. You cansee that there's the potential for the contestant to get very rich, butmost of the money remains just beyond his/her reach.Part of the problem is that the main character has lived a relativelysuperficial life to begin with. And the majority of the film is takenup showing how she has a difficult time dealing honestly with her ownemotions, coupled with a general lack of insight into her own psyche.So it's no surprise then that the film, which is a direct reflection ofher own thinness of character, feels weak and underdeveloped. Hergenerally upbeat, flippant attitude, mixed in with a dash of anger hereand there, is not enough to allow the film to succeed as a comedy or asa drama. Like its main character, the film can't quite figure out whatit is or where it should go or how it should get there. And to expecteverything to be tied up in a nice, neat little bow in the end, simplybecause she decided to have an upbeat funeral, or because her fathersaid "I love you", or because her previously allergic mother agreed totake her dog, is expecting way too much from the viewer to fill in thepieces that the film failed to do on its own.6/10
'A Little Bit of Heaven,' which will be the final film released by thethe now-bankrupt studio The Film Department, is really a blownopportunity. Not so much the film itself, but the title. After hearingthat title and seeing the great Peter Dinklage as the #2 listed castmember, I was excited. Could a movie actually take a risk and have themain character date a little person/dwarf? Now, it wouldn't be thefirst time that this would have happened, though the only one thatcomes to memory is 'Freaks' and I don't think that casts a good lighton the subject. Unfortunately, the only relation the title has toDinklage is the nickname he was given within his profession (I won'tgive away what that profession is, however, for sake of not ruining thebest part of the film).The film stars Kate Hudson as Marley, a slutty marketing exec whoeither doesn't believe in love or just enjoys gallivanting around withrandom men too much. After feeling rundown after a particularly intensenight of said gallivanting, Marley heads to the doctor to get herselfchecked out. After a few tests come back with bad results, she findsout that she's suffering from colorectal cancer and has only a shortwhile to live. This news is first broken to her by none other than God.. . played by Whoopi Goldberg. . . in an anaesthesia-inducedhallucination. Her future is then confirmed by awkward, but apparentlyhandsome, oncologist Julian (Gael GarcÃa Bernal), who convinces her tosign up for a dangerous experimental treatment for no other reason thanto have the film make her look more tired and give her a few more daysto fall in love. Also joining Marley's side in her time of need is herbest friend Sarah (Lucy Punch) and her combative parents (Kathy Bates &Treat Williams).Instead of straying from the conformity of modern romance stories, 'ALittle Bit of Heaven' grabs right onto them and holds on for dear life.It takes almost all of the elements of past "dying comedies" (likeQueen Latifah's 'Last Holiday' and Angelina Jolie's 'Life or SomethingLike It') and stuffs them into the film, including a funny"risk-taking" scene (hang gliding here), laughing off the condition as"not so bad," and falling in love with the doctor. It doesn't bother toadd much of anything new, except the use of Whoopi Goldberg as God,though there have been funnier choices to play a deity (AlannisMorisette in 'Dogma' comes to mind). After Judd Apatow released 'FunnyPeople,' even if it wasn't universally loved, I had hoped that thissmall subgenre of comedy would get a push in the right direction.Unfortunately, it looks as if it's going to continue to cling onto thesame conventions for a bit longer. The film does contain some heartfeltmoments that may jerk some tears from the ducts of our more emotionalaudience members, but after the emotional manipulation ends, thereisn't much else. That being said, it's not really a poorly writtenfilm. It's just not a bravely written one and that will leave it to benothing more than a forgettable entry in the filmographies for theotherwise talented cast. Final Verdict: 6/10.-AP3-
Much of this story about Marley (Hudson) is done quite well but a largechunk of it comes across as poorly directed, or just a film with anunconvincing screenplay. Perhaps the gambit of romance intertwined withlife changing health news was just not up to the kind of examination amovie like this gives. Or it may be because Marley was not anespecially well thought out character.For starters I was stuck with the notion that Marley was justsuperficial but then why would she have friends like those she had?Then I thought Marley was intended to be tough and independent, justnot ready for settling down. Eventually I wondered if the film was justabout timing but then I thought it was an odd way to demonstrate thesubject. By the end I was unconvinced and yet I so wanted to be movedby the whole thing.There is nothing too much wrong with this film to put your finger onand yet it is just unsatisfactory as a whole. The acting is reasonable,the dialogue at times quite sharp and amusing, the sound and visioneasy on the ears and eyes, and there are some really quite movingscenes. But there is something missing. Perhaps it just needed aslightly stronger hand on the tiller, someone not afraid to get theirhands dirty by taking chances along the journey. Did the director(Kassell) just play safe because she wanted average reward rather thansome more meaningful plaudits? So if you are stuck for something towatch on a Sunday afternoon this film will probably fit the bill. Ijust wish it had been better.
What made this film a winner, is the appearance of Peter Dinklage, whorecently picked up an Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a DramaSeries for Game of Thrones, and whose character provided the name ofthis film, which of course puns on his physical size. Playing a socialescort who got his services engaged for Kate Hudson's Marley Corbett,his support role was indeed one of the highlights of the film, comingin from the blue and serving up some great lines and moments, making amuch welcomed lift for the story.Which the trailer would have told you everything you needed to knowfrom start to end, with Marley being a successful career woman who isclimbing the corporate ladder with a zilch love life, but is soon cutdown unfairly to size by Fate who had dealt her the disease hand. Withcancer (colon, not very often mentioned on screen) treatment she meetsher doctor Julian Goldstein (Gael Garcia Bernal) from Mexico, andtossing doctor-patient relationships out of the window, they spend anincredible amount of lovely time together even if both knows abouttheir short lived romance should she choose to reject treatment, or ifthe disease would get the better of her. Whoopi Goldberg plays God, whogrants her three wishes, two of which were used rather carelessly,though of no fault of the bubbly one given initial skepticism.This film was ballsy in a number of ways, chief of which is in itstreatment of a story about death without shirking from the nastydetails of anticipation, and the inevitable execution. Many Hollywoodfilms tend to cop out at the very last minute, but this one tackled itwith a lot of dignity, and proved that one doesn't have to alwayscompromise to do what gets reflected in real life. That, and KateHudson showing a lot of nerve in many scenes almost sans makeup,looking quite ghastly and pale as the story called for it. Written byGren Wells, it's more about how one should approach life when given adeath sentence, with the romance angle taking a back seat despitemarketeers' efforts to skew this into a romantic comedy.Which is not surprising since it's a film helmed by Nicole Kassell,whose previous film was the dark and brooding The Woodsman starringKevin Bacon. A Little Bit of Heaven does steer toward a darker feel,although with some light at the end of the tunnel through overcomingchallenges in difficult family relationships, and the maintaining ofboth established ones with good friends, and new romantic ones formed.Kate Hudson may be typecast for roles that may involve the devil maycare attitude, and this one provides that opportunity for her to showoff a little bit of dramatic acting chops. Gael Garcia Bernal thoughwas relatively bland given his Doctor role, although does get some ofthe best lines in flubbing many jokes when the script called for it.Both leads share a nice chemistry although most of their romancing werereduced to a montage, leaving room for more of Kate Hudson and KathyBates to share some mother-daughter time, and that between Hudson andLucy Punch playing her best friend and one of many close confidantes.And in some ways this film made me think a little bit more aboutmortality, if one were to be struck by a serious illness which wasdetected late and the treatment really being a bitch, would you want togo ahead with trying to get cured, or to live whatever is left to thefullest? My choice will likely be the latter, although why not make thebest of life with each day instead?
A Little Bit of Heaven. It's got romance, comedy and tears. This filmgives you mixed emotions all the way through. With the amazing actors,Kate Hudson and Gael GarcÃa Bernal ,who play the main characters, theydo an amazing job at portraying how live is like with a terminalillness. It really does touch your heart. This film shows you thatwhatever happens in life you have to live it to the full and you don'ttake live for granted. I have recommended this film to my friends andfamily who have also said the film was emotional and funny. I recommendthis to all of you reading this currently and I have rated this 10 outof 10. You will LOVE it.
I saw this movie just now on a whim after a really horrible day inlife. And it is beautiful, really beautiful! The person that Katedisplays is a fantastical being and exactly the kind of person I striveto be. She reminded me of the fact that all the light, beauty and humorin life comes from within. It's all up to you and how you see theworld. And being a being of light, humor and happiness is everythinganyone should strive for in life... This movie reminds me of that, lifeis good, life is short and life really is worth living! Every stinkinghorrible gray day of it, because the more crap you live thru, thestronger you get and every time you come out smiling you will shine alittle brighter, to the very end!
if you want an hour and thirty minutes plus movie of overly emotionalsentimental teary eyed one whole box of tissues movie - this is it! amawkish story told in just the worst acting from start to finish.there is only one good thing i can say about this movie - it'sphotographed beautifully with colorful sets, grand effects, and nicemusic. but that is it! certainly the director didn't expect anyone tobelieve the plight of the leading role. she never looks ill ordissipated from the 'radical medical treatment' she received.no, no, no! what a waste of time. this melodrama would have been moresuited to some past decade when people expected this role playingcalled 'entertainment'.ugh!
If you're a Kate Hudson fan then you'll LOVE this movie! Kate has a wayof making movies fun and believable! She's absolutely great in thismovie! Kathy Bates' performance (another great actress) brings life tothis movie as well. There were a few scenes in the movie that were moving, however, theyweren't to the extreme of bringing me to tears, but I'd be willing tobet that I'm one of the few that (didn't cry) ie: those that have hadthe experience of surviving cancer or losing a loved one to cancer - myheart goes out to them. This being said.....***Definitely worth watching!!
Two young women - writer Gren Wells and director Nicole Kassell - makea solid impression with this little film that explores humanrelationships from family to friends to lovers in a manner that makesus look to either side of ourselves and appreciate what we have. Yes,it is a little bit of a fluff movie until the latter half, but it ispopulated with some very fine performances that make us appreciate thatfine line between comedy and tragedy, realizing that the difference isall a matter of perspective.Marley Corbett (Kate Hudson) is a beautiful ad executive who collectsone night stands lake a magnet - by her own choosing. She is afraid ofcommitment, perhaps reflecting her experience with her parents BeverlyCorbett (Kathy Bates) and Jack Corbett (Treat Williams) - a couple whoseem perennially at odds with each other and the world and maintain adistance form Marley. Marley has solid friendships: Sarah (Lucy Punch)tries to learn feminine wiles techniques from Marley, Renee (RosemarieDeWitt) has Marley babysit her delightful child Cammie while she tendsto mothering and wifeing with her husband (Jason Davis - she is againpregnant), her boss Rob (Steven Weber) and her gay next door neighborPeter Cooper (Romany Malco). Marley sleeps with lots of attractive guysbut when they begin to talk about longterm relationships, Marley backsoff.At the advertising agency Marley is asked if she is losing weight, aquestion that drives Marley to the doctor. Her new physician is Dr.Julian Goldstein (Gael GarcÃa Bernal), a handsome but shy and dedicatedyoung man who examines Marley and sedates her for colonoscopy: whileMarley is under medication she dreams of being in heaven next to God(Whoopi Goldberg) who tells her she is dying and gives her three wishes- Marley chooses a million dollars, a chance to fly, and to find love.Upon awakening she is informed she has extensive colon cancer and Dr.Goldstein suggests she see a Dr. Sanders (Alan Dale) who offers her twochoices - extensive chemotherapy or death. Marley chooses the formerand from there she begins to alter her relationships with everyonearound her. She gradually falls in love with Dr. Goldstein, confrontsher parents and friends with her news, and the manner in which theyaccept her fate is where the film alters to a tender heart-warminggentle string of events that should be seen instead of read.It is so rewarding to see Kate Hudson expand her acting talent into aserious role and she manages to find that perfect balance between thelighthearted personality we all recognize and the empathetic andvulnerable woman she becomes. Gael GarcÃa Bernal assumes a new type ofrole and is completely charming and lovable. There is a fine cameo byPeter Dinklage - a Special Escort hired by neighbor Peter to giveMarley 'a little bit of heaven' - and Kathy Bates, Lucy Punch, andRomany Malco are particularly fine. This film will likely bring a fewtears to the viewer's eyes, but those releases of emotion just make usfeel better about life. Despite the few over the edge silly parts inthe film this is a solid little gem that should find an appreciativeaudience when it reaches the theaters. Grady Harp, April 12
I'm sure this was one of the worst acting performance I seen in a veryvery long time. It is supposed to be a tragical story but Kate Hudsonplays her role like it is a comedy, absolutely nothing about this movieis reliable. Actors smiles and acts in a way that only makes the moviereally bad and annoying, Gael GarcÃa Bernal is also totally bad in hisrole, it's like a joke to put him in the role as a doctor, nothing iscredible in his acting. He could play a part as a busker or mental illpatient instead, it would suit better. People who rate this movie highis terribly confused or lacks a credible view of reality, because themovie has quite a sad end (that actors make laughable for not sayingpathetic) it's NOT a reason for giving higher rates. Some actors(Bates, Dinklage, Goldberg, Dale, Weber) play good but it's not enoughfor give the movie even 3/10. If you want to waste a bit of time forsomething that is totally ridiculous, then go ahead and watch thismovie!
Once rom-com queen Kate Hudson returns to the big screen with not a comedy, but rather a weepie, playing a free-spirited young woman who discovers one day that she has not many more months to live. It's the kind of material that you would expect from a Nicholas Sparks novel, or perhaps a Korean or Japanese movie- and true enough, without the right pedigree, this tearjerker which tries to put an upbeat spin on death ends up being just middling.To be fair, Hudson exhibits her usual sunny brand of charisma as Marley, the sassy account director in the advertising industry who has just won her New Orleans agency a coveted contract for a condom company. She parties hard, has an active no-strings sex life, and remains gleefully single living alone in an apartment with her dog Walter. A few years back, the Marley as played by Hudson would probably meet a guy, fall in love, and discover the beauty of commitment- but no, here she meets a handsome doctor Julian (Gael Garcia Bernal) while finding out that she has colon cancer. How the times have not been kind to Hudson (the same of which could be said of her stalling Hollywood career). Anyways, Marley also discovers that she has probably very little hope of recovery from a dreamlike sequence where she meets God in the form of a cheerfully beaming Whoopi Goldberg. We kid you not- somehow the filmmakers decided that they needed a touch of the Divine and Morgan Freeman was probably not available. There are two such Godly encounters in the entire movie, each equally hokey as the other, but thankfully the rest of first-time feature writer Gren Wells' script is moderately better (and we do mean only moderately). Eschewing the easy melodrama, Marley takes death in her stride, going about her remaining days determined to make the best out of them instead of lamenting about her circumstance. Besides her separated parents (Kathy Bates and Treat Williams), she also gets loving support from her band of happy-go-lucky friends (among them Lucy Punch and Romany Malco)- not to mention a love interest in the form of Dr. Julian. As far as Hollywood schmaltz goes, this is pure formula, so expect none of the people around Marley to take advantage of her, or decide that they have none of her condition. Inspiration isn't the movie's strong suite, so there are really little surprises along the way even as Marley grows progressively weaker. And the film too suffers the same fate, its determination to be bittersweet especially trying when it gets to the inevitable melodrama by the third act. Director Nicole Kassell is far from her critically acclaimed big screen debut 'The Woodsman', and can't quite find the right tone for the film to settle in. Instead, too much comedy at the start alienates us from the gravity of Marley's situation, and too much melodrama at the end just rings hollow. The romance between Marley and Julian also never convinces- Hudson and Bernal sharing little winning chemistry with each other. Yet despite these flaws, Kassell's sophomore feature still has the glossy sheen of a typical Hollywood product, and undemanding audiences will likely find this pleasing enough. Still, a film with a subject matter like this needs to resonate emotionally in order to be worth its weight, and its decidedly carefree attitude works against the film by making it too lightweight for its audience to care. That's a shame really, for Hudson is luminous as ever, her radiant presence- while sorely missed in recent years- wasted in mediocrity like this.
I saw this week "Something Borrowed", "Bridesmaids" and "A Little Bitof Heaven", and the rate seems so opposite to what I think. Bridesmaids7.3 and "A Little Bit of Heaven" 5.9, I just don't understand how. Thismovie makes you laugh and makes you cry, I had seen some really reallybad comedies that makes you cry! but this one really touches yourfeelings. This is my first review, the only reason I wrote this isbecause I think people should know it. In my humble opinion, this onewas so much better . Kate Hudson's acting goes beyond to what we haveseen before, I think she is doing it better and better with the pass ofthe time. Well that's it! Just to let you know what I think.. Thanksfor reading it.
Grab some tissues! This was well worth the watch. Is it an Oscar movie?No, but it is beautiful, poignant, touching, and quirky. If you'relooking for a good, sentimental movie, give this a shot. Kate playsMarley, a young up and coming ad executive staring down the barrel at aterminal sentence. Angry and upset about all the things she will neverget accomplished, she discovers that even with the short amount of timeshe is given she still has the opportunity and ability to scratch someoff the list including finding that one special person. Lucy Punch,Kate Hudson, Kathy Bates, and Gael G. Bernal all give excellent heartstring tugging performances.
I read the description and OK, I thought this was one of those sillyHollywood movies where a girl finds love and blah blah. I was lookingfor something light to spend my afternoon with some chips and I endedholding an empty tissue box cursing the guys who made those tissues sothin! I cried int he beginning but the end, oh dear, the end was justunbearable. Please note I never get that emotional when it comes tomovies, but Kate Hudson's performance simply nailed it. If you're notprepared to cry, don't watch this. You will also need a couple oftissue boxes with you and probably no one else around you so that youcan cry all you want. This movie helped me realise so many things and Iwould watch it again in a heartbeat. I'm so glad I watched it.
It's a great movie....extremely sad....But totally worth watching. It'sabout making amends with people we love, about enjoying life, aboutbeing open to love. It makes you realize how much we waste timesometimes by doing nothing (of course watching A movie isn't somethingthat meaningful, but if by watching it, it makes you reflect on yourlife, i think it's a pretty good movie. It was enjoyable, and it couldmake you want to make your life better, stop wasting time, making yourdreams come true NOW instead of TOMORROW. We don't know if there'sgoing to be a tomorrow. I loved that Kate looked so natural, no make up(at least unnoticeable), but still so beautiful. And Gael is so goodyou, he is a terrific actor. His performance is incredible. It's rightwhat the others say....WATCH IT, and then decide if it's good or not!don't listen to anybody else!
Firstly, I was excited to see this film but was put off by the criticsreviews. However, I took a chance and saw it. This isn't a fluffyromantic comedy. The premise is about Marley (Kate Hudson) doesn't wantto fall in love, finds out she is dying of cancer and slowly falls inlove with her doctor.Character development is very good and there are some moving scenes inthe movie (particluary one scene with Marley talking to her pregnantfriend through her front door.)This is an enjoyable film which starts off as a light comedy and thethemes of the movie slowly become more daunting and upsetting.BRING TISSUES. It is a weepie. No masterpiece but certainly go and seeit to decide for yourself.xoxo
