Reviews

Total Film - Emma Dibdin
While the marriage of fluffy comedy and terminal illness was always going to be an uncomfortable one, this is an understated, genuinely poignant weepie bolstered by a top-drawer cast.

ReelViews - James Berardinelli
What's missing is honesty. It has been supplanted by artifice.
25
The A.V. Club - Keith Phipps
Bravely or stupidly, both A Little Bit Of Heaven and its heroine charge on as if the introduction of terminal cancer didn't change things that much.
25
Slant Magazine - Andrew Schenker
Unsurprisingly for a film detailing terminal disease, this is a largely solemn affair, often verging on morbidity in its elongated deathwatch.
20
The Guardian - Peter Bradshaw
This film is one long biopsy of pure horror: the tumours of sentimentality and bad acting metastasise everywhere, and Bernal, in particular, is horrendously bad.
