Unlike more famous, if not as popular actors like John Wayne, Mel Gibson and even one of my favorites, Clint Eastwood; no one in movies has played a greater variety of fascinatingly oddball and complex characters so well.
Even the "Last King of Scotland", for which Mr. Whitaker earned a long overdue Oscar, did not present the acting challenge this grim and complex little gem presented.
This is a morality tale that's high on great ensemble acting, deep and profound ethical and moral considerations. And Julia Stiles at the top of her considerable acting game. This movie will keep you engrossed from its surprising start to stunning finish.
Peter Coyote's brief but memorable performance reminds you of the Konstantin Stanislavsky (the inventor of the famous Stanislavsky Method) quote, "There are no small parts, only small actors."
I finally decide to get my own copy so I wouldn't be at the mercy of a cable movie schedule with no appreciation of what a fascinating little gem movie is.
Jeremy Renner finally got his Oscar for "the Hurt Locker." But he showed those acting chops way back when this movie debuted
One of these days, Julia Stiles and Peter Coyote will be similarly rewarded, I'm sure!
Forest Whitaker plays an insurance investigator sent to evaluate a death claim from the previously mentioned accident. It's out to the country where the lawmen, naturally, are rubes. As any insurance agent is want to do--Whitaker decides to spend an extended amount of time in town, interview and insinuate himself into the lives of all those involved, and solve a little murder or two by traipsing around the desolate landscape as some sort of unquestioned authority. Heck, this is rural America--these country folk don't know any better! Renner, at least, provides appropriate menace as a prime suspect of wrongdoing. But the film steers into seriously unnecessary territory as some sort of romantic bond inexplicably forms between Whitaker and Stiles (who is as unlikable and as culpable as anyone in the film, but the filmmakers want us to view as a sympathetic heroine). It's all very awkward.Read more ›

I'm a big fan of all three main characters. I like a good movie that makes me think and that has an "unselfish" ending. It was a bit awkward during the middle but all in all... Read morePublished on November 5, 2012 by mzbeybgrl

This is a somewhat unusual and very interesting crime drama film. Forest Whitaker, Jeremy Renner, and Julia Stiles are very fine. Read morePublished on October 17, 2011 by Manny Agah
The most disappointing part with A Little Trip to Heaven is *easily* that it never improves past the car accident in the beginning of the movie. Read morePublished on August 19, 2011 by Bryan
