What If?

Chantry and Wallace meet at a party. Although nursing a broken heart, Wallace feels sure that he has met the girl for him. Sadly though, Chantry has a boyfriend, and the best that Wallace is going to get from her is friendship.

Surely being friends is better than nothing? But how long can it last? I can tell you how long it lasts – it lasts the whole movie!

I don’t mind Radcliffe in the role of Wallace, but I don’t love him in the rom com genre. He certainly struck it lucky getting cast with Kazan, who’s short and perky and a good match for him. There aren’t too many female rom com actors he could get matched well with, and I don’t think he should risk another rom com in case he’s not so well matched in the future.

This is an ‘okay’ film, a sweet film. Kazan is lovely (I like her in Ruby Sparks and happythankyoumoreplease) and she did a great job here. But I warn you – only watch this film if you really love a traditional rom com because it won’t satisfy much else!
