    Elizabeth Banks stars in 'Just a Little Heart Attack' -- a comedy helping to raise awareness for women and cardiac health concerns.

    While heart health is no laughing matter, the American Heart Association is releasing a new film -- a comedy about a woman having a heart attack.

    The short film is an exaggeration of the typical working mother working so hard she doesn't realize she is having a small heart attack.

    The point?

    Heart disease is the number one killer of women in America and they need to be aware. That means taking time no one thinks they have to eat right, exercise and quit smoking. Doctors say even if you're think and healthy you are still at risk for heart disease.

    The film was released Friday, national "Go Red for Women Day". It was directed by and stars actress Elizabeth Banks.
