First trailer for romantic comedy What If starring Daniel Radcliffe

05.29.2014

Daniel Radcliffe has been jumping all over the map with his role choices since completing the HARRY POTTER franchise. Whether it be drama (KILL YOUR DARLINGS), horror (THE WOMAN IN BLACK), or the upcoming movies HORNS and FRANKENSTEIN, Radcliffe is intent to prove his chops outside of roles that require witchcraft or wizardry. His latest genre is the romantic comedy.

Radcliffe stars in WHAT IF (previously titled THE F WORD) opposite Zoe Kazan in which they play a pair of friends who develop feelings for one another despite one of them being in a relationship.

WHAT IF is the story of medical school dropout Wallace (Daniel Radcliffe), who's been repeatedly burned by bad relationships. So while everyone around him, including his roommate Allan (Adam Driver) seems to be finding the perfect partner (Mackenzie Davis), Wallace decides to put his love life on hold. It is then that he meets Chantry (Zoe Kazan) an animator who lives with her longtime boyfriend Ben (Rafe Spall). Wallace and Chantry form an instant connection, striking up a close friendship. Still, there is no denying the chemistry between them, leading the pair to wonder, what if the love of your life is actually your best friend?

Now, the romantic comedy has become a joke over the last several years, but every now and then a decent movie peeks out and gives hope that the genre can still be viable. WHAT IF absolutely looks like it follows the main beats of every romantic comedy out there, but as our own Chris Bumbray pointed out when he reviewed the film at TIFF last year, this movie "has real breakout potential, and hopefully it'll find it's audience.". I am just glad that they let Radcliffe keep his British accent in this one.

I laughed

I'm really impressed with how Daniel Radcliffe has pushed himself as an actor since HARRY POTTER wrapped up: he's obviously going for the long haul, getting interesting roles in movies he wants to be in. He also has a natural flair for this kind of comedy.

As a Torontonian, I'm also interested in this because it looks like a love note to Toronto. ;)

What the F....

I mean, this trailer is 3 AND A HALF MINUTES LONG!!!!!...... And don't get me wrong, for a romantic comedy, This looks great. But I don't feel like I need to see the movie anymore.... Everything is given away in this trailer. God, it annoys me. Anyway.... Adam Driver for the win.

PG13

One thing - my review was for the TIFF version, which was hard R. This is a watered-down cut. UK and Canada will get the original. But I can't say whether the cut version lives up to my review.

Been Hyped on this since Chris's review

I could careless if Harry Potter was in it! I like him and everything but it's really all about Michael Dowse! The dude is a great comedic director that gets pretty much no credit! Fubar and Fubar: Balls to the Walls are phenomenal so is The Goon and Take Me Home Tonight!

Dude is great

He has done Broadway and now is venturing into comedy. The guy has talent. Zoe Kazan is extremely talented. I saw her in a play last night called "When We were Young and Unafraid". She is still one of my top Hollywood crushes.

Daniel looks like he's a natural when it comes to comedy.

I was in a very non comical situation like this years ago, I'm going to check it out.
