Editorial Reviews

Marley Corbett (Kate Hudson) is young, beautiful, and wildly funny, but she s afraid of opening herself up to true love and commitment. Though she uses her humor to prevent matters from getting serious, a life-changing visit to her doctor (Gael Garcia Bernal) sends both of them on an eye-opening adventure of mutual discovery, leading to revelations neither thought possible. Also stars Peter Dinklage, Whoopi Goldberg, Kathy Bates and Rosemarie DeWitt.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Little Bit of Heaven...A very big surprise. April 9, 2012
Format:Blu-ray
Without revealing any real spoilers I have to say...
I'm not much for the "Chick Flick"/romance genre, but this movie wowed me.

Kate Hudson put in a performance of such quality, that I haven't seen from her since "How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days". She starts out fun and flirty with a bit of despicable mixed in. Then her character moved me to a bit of hatred for the treatment she issued to her family and friends. Then towards the end she made me fall in love with her character and almost come to tears for her predicament.

There's a lot of teaching, learning and cameraderie throughout the movie. There are laughs shared and tears shed between the characters. Every single moment within the movie feels genuine, and I can genuinely see myself or anybody else going through the same phases if faced with a similar situation. I honestly wouldn't be surprised to find out that this was based on a true life story(don't remember seeing that stated anywhere in the movie though).

This movie has sufficient humor to be a comedy, sufficient grief to be a tragedy and just enough love to be a romance that doesn't make you nauseous. There is only one truly over the top moment in the movie, but it's at the end. The biggest tragedy is this movie will only be in limited release at a few theatres just weeks before the DVD comes out.

4.0 out of 5 stars Funny and Tender and with Lingering Sensitivity April 12, 2012
Format:Amazon Instant Video
Two young women - writer Gren Wells and director Nicole Kassell - make a solid impression with this little film that explores human relationships from family to friends to lovers in a manner that makes us look to either side of ourselves and appreciate what we have. Yes, it is a little bit of a fluff movie until the latter half, but it is populated with some very fine performances that make us appreciate that fine line between comedy and tragedy, realizing that the difference is all a matter of perspective.

Marley Corbett (Kate Hudson) is a beautiful ad executive who collects one night stands lake a magnet - by her own choosing. She is afraid of commitment, perhaps reflecting her experience with her parents Beverly Corbett (Kathy Bates) and Jack Corbett (Treat Williams) - a couple who seem perennially at odds with each other and the world and maintain a distance form Marley. Marley has solid friendships: Sarah (Lucy Punch) tries to learn feminine wiles techniques from Marley, Renee (Rosemarie DeWitt) has Marley babysit her delightful child Cammie while she tends to mothering and wifeing with her husband (Jason Davis - she is again pregnant), her boss Rob (Steven Weber) and her gay next door neighbor Peter Cooper (Romany Malco). Marley sleeps with lots of attractive guys but when they begin to talk about longterm relationships, Marley backs off.

At the advertising agency Marley is asked if she is losing weight, a question that drives Marley to the doctor. Her new physician is Dr.

The reviews run from almost zero to stellar responses. some reviewers reference folks they know who have one form of cancer or another[all cancers are NOT the same!],and how the script doesn't accurately portray the real struggle[s] as they see it through the eyes of friends,etc. or from reading books, watching documentaries,etc. this is a movie, folks, and so saying Hollywood sold out is kinda surprising to me; i halfway anticipate a 'sell-out' anytime hollywood tackles subjects such as cancer..as a person living with two last-stage lymphomas, i could - if so desired - pick apart its fragmented nature, or the plot holes, or a number of other things, e.g., underdeveloped character. played by Gael Bernal Garcia, Treat Williams,etc. but that would be picking and missing the point - at least in the opinion of someone living with end-stage disease[s]. what i got from the movie, aside from ms. hudson's extraordinary performance, was that for some[?] or many[?] of us it often takes something, some kind of life shattering/life-threatening event to wake us up and out of our daily robotic way[s] of living and focus - perhaps for the first time ever - on what's REALLY important!! and it brilliantly shows the difficulties faced by the patient her or himself as to how to communicate with friends/family so as to not burden them while simultaneously informing them of your feelings, and also trying to care about their feelings too - which is an ENORMOUS undertaking....and unless one is a patient, you just ain't gonna get it....so the messages contained in this - yes - less than ideal movie - are critical and crucial IN EVERYONE'S LIFE, NOT JUST THOSE WITH LIFE-THREATENING ILLNESS!!! WAKE UP - BEFORE IT WELL MIGHT BE TOO LATE!!!

This movie caught me quite by surprise. I was thoroughly delighted with the acting of Kate Hudson (Marley Corbett) while looking for her to pull out her acting chops once again as I have seen her do before. In her engrossing portrayal of Penny Lane in Cameron Crowe's semi-autobiographical account 'Almost Famous', Hudson shines as the brightest and promising new star on the horizon.

In this movie she also is able to deliver on several levels and in diverse genres. She is not pigeonholed into being just a comedic actress. While there is the element of comedy also present, Hudson also pulls the tears and much drama.

Set in New Orleans, Marley is on top as an advertising executive and at the pinnacle of her career succeeding on her own terms. She is fulfilled through her high power status enjoying many gratifying friendships and is completely lovable as her story enfolds and develops.

Marley's most relevant friendship is with the wonderful Rosemarie DeWitt (Renee). Kathy Bates and Treat Williams star as her divorced parents. First completely self-absorbed, emotionally vacant and severely critical of Marley. One could easily respect her apprehension toward committed relationships with her bickering role models. As Beverly and Jack, they do a wonderful job in their spot-on roles of her parents.

Marley begins to notice herself feeling drained, fatigued and being told she is losing weight. At her friends urging she visits Dr. Julian Goldstein, the superlative actor Gael Garcia Bernal in a different role for him.

I enjoyed Bernal in this movie. He is charming through the dichotomy of feelings he starts having for Marley and is quite shy owning a sweet uncomfortable nature.
