What If (2013)

what-if-poster

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. (IMDb)

A charming cast with good chemistry, a script chock full of random witty banter (Driver’s crude best friend is a highlight), and the dulcet tones of Patrick Watson aren’t enough to completely distract from the utterly predictable romance plot (a “just kidding” airport scene near the end got my hopes up but it was not to be), but they at least make it a pleasant journey, and credit is deserved for how long they postponed the inevitable, though it seemed to make the ending that much more meh.

6.6/10

    1. Yeah he was really good in this one! I think I’ve only seen him in this and Kill Your Darlings outside of Harry Potter (though I’m dying to see Swiss Army Man, which I’ve heard he is great in!). Anyways, what are you waiting for, GO WATCH HARRY POTTER! (I’m a big fan of the books, so I’m biased, but the movies-in spite of their flaws-are all quite enjoyable I think regardless (a few of them even great).
