Are you ready for your daily dose of twee? Well, get ready, cause the trailer for What If has your full daily recommended amount. Romantic comedies get a lot of crap (deservedly), but the way I see it, they’re no different than other escapism genre. Like horror and action movies, the overwhelming majority, yes, are crap, but when they’re done right they can be damn satisfying. This one, I think, has potential.
It’s the rare romcom that focuses on the male point of view (500 Days of Summer, I’m looking at you), and for What If, we have
Harry Potter Daniel Radcliffe in the lead Katherine Heigl role, and Adam Driver as the quirky Judy Greerish BFF. Plus they’ve got Zoe Kazan and your next big crush once Halt and Catch Fire premiers, Mackenzie Davis.
