User Reviews

An unrealistic portrayal of a cancer patient
26 November 2011 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

This film is about a young career woman who has to re-prioritise her life after finding out she has cancer.

I was hoping "A Little Bit of Heaven" would mix romantic comedy with some tear jerking drama about coping with cancer, but the film shows almost only romantic comedy. Kate Hudson acts well but her role as a woman battling with terminal cancer is so unconvincing. She even has ALL her hair even after her chemotherapy! It so irresponsible that her character blatantly disregards treatment just to get some love from her doctor. The tone of the film is just wrong, it does not acknowledge the suffering of cancer patients and the loved ones around. I find "A Little Bit of Heaven" an unrealistic portrayal of the life of a terminal cancer patient, minimising and invalidating the physical and psychological issues they face.

If "A Little Bit of Heaven" drops the cancer subplot, and just states that Marley has a serious illness that changes her attitude towards life, it would have been less offensive to cancer patients and survivors.
