Critic's Review Heading

Roger Ebert Full Review
Above Average Everything about the romantic comedy 'What If' is cute. Utterly cute. Undeniably cute. Uber-duber cute.

USA Today Full Review
Good Clearly, casting smart, talented, effervescent actors, rather than the usual blandly interchangeable pretty faces, raises the level of the game.

Entertainment Weekly Full Review
Very Poor The romantic-comedy formula depends on our wish to see two tentative soul mates finally get with each other. But this backfires badly in What If, an unctuous rom-com that runs its characters through every plastic cliché...

NY Post Full Review
Poor 'What If' is a case of the cutes the way the Black Death was a case of infectious disease. The movie is saturated with cute, teeming with cute, rancid with cute.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Wallace (Daniel Radcliffe) and Chantry (Zoe Kazan) meet at a party while creating refrigerator magnet poetry and feel an immediate spark- but it's not to be because Chantry lives with her long-term boyfriend. When they run into each other a second time outside a theater after seeing The Princess Bride, there's that undeniable connection again, so they do the responsible thing and decide to be friends. They form a fast friendship where they talk about everything from movies to sandwiches to disappointing Christmas presents, exposing all of their hopes, idiosyncrasies and insecurities to each other.

As their friendship evolves from playful banter into intimate revelations, it becomes increasingly obvious that Wallace's feelings for Chantry go deeper than he would like to admit and she may or may not feel the same way. While she starts to question her feelings for Ben in light of her growing attachment to Wallace, Wallace turns to his impulsive best friend, Allan (Driver), for help answering some questions of his own. Should Wallace and Chantry's friendship be squashed due to budding romantic influences or can they control their desires and simply enjoy the benefits of a platonic relationship? What if staying friends means Wallace is letting the love of his life slip away? What if he professes his love, falls on his face and loses his best friend?
