Reviews: What If (2014)

what_ifReviews for this film from our members:

  • Mario Alegre @ Primera Hora [Spanish]
  • Jason Bailey @ Flavorwire
    • Excerpt: Yes, you have seen movies like ‘What If’ before, and yes, you will see movies like it again. But when it does what it does well, what’s the harm?
  • Tim Brayton @ Antagony & Ecstasy
  • Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat @ SpiritualityandPractice.com
    • Excerpt: Some fresh insights and new slants on the pesky question: can a man and a woman be friends and not lovers?
  • Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews
    • Excerpt: Another shot fired across the bow at Hollywood’s attempt to kill the romantic comedy genre, “What If” may veer uncomfortably close into some too cutesy moments and scatological bad taste, but it always manages to right itself, buoyed by its charming star pairing of Radcliffe and Kazan.
  • Susan Granger @ www.susangranger.com
    • Excerpt: Trifling and tedious , totally predictable rom-com – not even worth placing on your Netfliix queue.
  • Mark Hobin @ Fast Film Reviews
    • Excerpt: What If is pleasant enough but the slightness of the story ultimately relegates this affair to little more than passable time filler.
  • Travis Hopson @ Examiner
    • Excerpt: What If has modest ambitions and stars you will never get tired of watching, but you’ll leave thinking it could have been a more lasting relationship rather than just a fling.
  • Charlie Juhl @ Citizen Charlie
    • Excerpt: Back in 1989 after When Harry Met Sally was released, a studio exec probably said, “What if we make a sequel or another rom/com similar to this one?” His partners told him that was not a good idea; too bad that advice did not filter down to 2014.
  • Jeremy Kibler @ The Artful Critic
    • Excerpt: After a rather unctuous start and strained wackiness creeping in on occasion, WHAT IF hinges on the connection between Daniel Radcliffe and Zoe Kazan, who’s an unfailing delight.
  • Kristin Dreyer Kramer @ NightsAndWeekends.com
  • [New – 10/9/14] | Marty Mapes @ Movie Habit
    • Excerpt: Radcliffe, Kazan, and a good screenplay make it a sparkling, refreshing romantic comedy
  • Pat Mullen @ Cinemablographer
    • Excerpt: 5 stars… one of the best comedies Canada has ever produced.
  • Stefan Pape @ HeyUGuys
    • Excerpt: With little risk taken, here is a film you’ve seen a million times before, and sadly, will see a million times again.
