A Little Bit of Heaven is a comedy about a woman who finds out she has cancer and will die, but then she meets the love of her life, and discovers that falling in love may be scarier than dying. Also, discovering Whoopi Goldberg is god, would be more frightening than taking a dirt nap. Unless you are Ted Danson, but that’s just common sense.
Man, that is the among worst plot synopsis I’ve ever written, and I’m including Twilight in that statement, and those films has sparkly teenaged vampires. Not a ton of other details are available on the plot, but the woman works at an advertising agency, so there’s that.
And having watched the trailer, I have to admit that the description is not the worst part of the film. It seems at some point she’ll visit heaven, briefly, like Simba in The Lion King, or Shia LaSuck in Transformers, where she talks to Whoopi Goldberg, who is either God or an angel, and she’s probably taught to open her heart to love, and cured of cancer. Or maybe she still dies, but she does so having known love. *sniff*
Shut up. I have something in my eye.
Oh, and in the trailer it looks like she’s big ho. Ho fo sho. Here’s a tip ladies, I want my girls NOT to be used up by the time I get to them.
A Little Bit of Heaven is directed by Nicole Kassell, who looks like this:
Just thought I’d let you see those glasses. Oh, and she directed that Kevin Bacon as a child molester (I think it was a documentary) The Woodsman.
Who’s It For?

What’s Good About It?
Kate Hudson has a knack for being perky and likable. I don’t want to enjoy her films, but I tend to.
What’s Bad About It?
I’m going to have a heard time watching the film while thinking about how I want her to die. Oh, and if you die, and you go to a place in the clouds where Whoopi Goldberg greets you, don’t be fooled, the devil is tricking you, and you’re in hell.
Our Clever Prediction
I doubt it’ll be a big hit, but it may do well. Perkiness.
