| Fun Movie
'What if' is about Wallace (Daniel Radcliffe), a heart broken medical school dropout who meets Chantry (Zoe Kazan), an animator and Wallace's love interest. The moment they meet, Wallace is in love. Unfortunately for him, Chantry is already in a serious relationship and just wants to be friends.

Like most movies of this genre, you can for the most part guess how this movie progresses. However, that didn't really matter as the movie was fun and quite enjoyable. Most of the jokes were witty and didn't feel forced. All the relationships in the movie were enjoyable to watch as well. All the actors did a great job as well.

At the end, I had a good time watching this movie. It was a good fun movie.

Quotes

Nicole: What's the best case scenario?
Nicole: Look, the one thing I like about getting married is that you get to stand up in front of everyone you care about and state for the record that you believe in the best case scenario.


Goofs

(at around 13 mins) Wallace explains what "Fools Gold" is. He talks of coating the inside with an entire jar of peanut butter as well as a jar of jam. After that, you see Chantry typing an email to Wallace, below which you can see Wallace's original email about Fools Gold. This email, however, doesn't talk about a jar of peanut butter. Just jam.


Crazy Credits

The beginning of the closing credits are done with Chantry's animations telling some of the story of the movie as well as some of the back story.

Comparing Australian PAL DVD (original/TIFF cut) to US Bluray (US cut), changes begin from AU version at appx 65:00, equivalent to US version at appx 65:13 :

  • "Lawn Bowls" reordered scene: AU @ 65:00-66:26 --> US @ 67:48
  • "Tearing list" scene: AU @ 66:54-67:00 --> deleted from US
  • "Chantry wandering around Dublin" scene: AU @ 67:04-67:15 --> deleted from US
