Romance, comedy and tears all in one film!
13 February 2013 | by See all my reviews

A Little Bit of Heaven. It's got romance, comedy and tears. This film gives you mixed emotions all the way through. With the amazing actors, Kate Hudson and Gael García Bernal ,who play the main characters, they do an amazing job at portraying how live is like with a terminal illness. It really does touch your heart. This film shows you that whatever happens in life you have to live it to the full and you don't take live for granted. I have recommended this film to my friends and family who have also said the film was emotional and funny. I recommend this to all of you reading this currently and I have rated this 10 out of 10. You will LOVE it.
