What If (2014) Review!!

what-if-2014-wlf-collab-movie-review-with-adelle-of-roll-credits-mmc-derek-easleySynopsis – Wallace, who is burned out from a string of failed relationships, forms an instant bond with Chantry, who lives with her longtime boyfriend. Together, they puzzle out what it means if your best friend is also the love of your life.

My Take – Daniel Radcliffe has been trying really hard from the past few years to shed off his past Harry Potter image, well with this romantic comedy, I think he finally has! The film is a perfect blend of romance & humor, witnessed earlier in films like 500 Days of Summer, When Harry met Sally etc.

what-if-daniel-radcliffe-zoe-kazanThe script is really crisp & sharp as It combines several kinds of humor, from slapstick to witty. Director Michael Dowse balances all these humors well while also getting to the heart of the situation. The film has depth and mature conversations about romance and what to do when stuck in a love triangle. Well its the cast which runs this film, Zoe Kazan is funny & chirpy while sharing good chemistry with Radcliffe! Adam Driver is hilarious! & happens to steal be the scene stealer in most cases. I belief this film could not have been what it is without Daniel Radcliffe, from his in despicable comic timing to emotional scenes, he is just awesome!

what ifOverall What if aka The “F” Word is a gem. It’s well written and acted and is able to balance many kinds of humors in order to please a wider audience. “What If” is a romantic comedy done right!!
