TRAILER: Kate Hudson & Gael Garcia Bernal's "A Little Bit of Heaven"

PLOT: It's a comedy about a guarded woman (Hudson) who finds out she's dying of cancer, but when she meets her match (Bernal), the threat of falling in love is scarier than death.

CAST: Kate Hudson, Gael Garcia Bernal, Lucy Punch (Dinner for Schmucks), Romany Malco ("No Ordinary Family"), Rosemarie DeWitt ("United States of Tara"), Kathy Bates, Whoopi Goldberg,

VERDICT: Looks like Hudson is trying to get back to making movies-with-heart instead of easy paydays (*cough* Fools Gold *cough*). This, like most cancer-stricken romances, can end one of two ways: cure + happily ever after OR epic romance + tear-jerking death. Either way, everything's pretty predictable. The only thing that can save it are the performances and the chemistry, and I really can't picture Hudson and Bernal convincingly falling in love. It's most likely a rental.

Release Date: February 4 (UK)
