Preview: A Little Bit of Heaven (2012)


A successful advertising agent is diagnosed with cancer and attempts to come to terms with the prognosis while handling the people in her life who seem to be handling more poorly than she.

  • Poster: C-


Kate Hudson and Gael Garcia Bernal are familiar enough some might look further, but aren't proven box office draws, so their presence on the poster, especially in such large proportions, doesn't seem terribly wise.

  • Trailer: C+


There are some funny moments, but most of the trailer looks like a familiar exploration of cancer issues with plenty of faux sentimentalism to appeal to a small swath of the marketplace. And if you have to give away part of the plot in order to list an actor as part of the cast, then don't list them.
