A Little Bit of Heaven (12A)
Starring: Kate Hudson, Gael García Bernal
Friday 04 February 2011
A large slice of Hell, more like. Try not to groan as Kate Hudson's sassy single gal receives a personal message from God – played (who knows why?) by Whoopi Goldberg – that she's dying of cancer and has three wishes before she checks out.
Will one of them possibly involve her hunky oncologist Gael García Bernal? He's also a hopeless joke-teller, but you try squeezing a laugh out of this screenplay. The last hour of the movie feels like a premature death in itself as Kate delivers a personal valediction to each and every cast member (mum, dad, next-door neighbour, etc) through a barrage of hugs and tears.
