A Little Bit of Heaven
What it's about:

Marley Corbett, a carefree woman with a promising career, great friends, and witty sense of humor, learns that she has terminal cancer. She is told the news by Dr. Goldstein, a successful doctor with a hardened exterior, who is deeply impressed and affected by the way Marley accepts the news of her fate with humor and dignity. From there, Marley and Julian find themselves falling in love, and doing their best to make the most of the time they have left. 

What the critics thought:

"About as morbid and schlocky a romcom as you can imagine." - Christopher Tookey, Daily Mail [UK]

"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." - Peter Bradshaw, Guardian [UK]

"Jaw-droppingly mawkish and offensively trivial about confronting one's mortality." - Tim Robey, Daily Telegraph

"The emotional breakthroughs are clearly signposted, as if you can feel the filmmaker's hand while she slowly winds our heartstrings around her little finger." -  Stella Papamichael, Digital Spy
