It’s no accident that the movie poster for What If places good friends Wallace and Chandry at a diner.
The film is clearly trying to be the When Harry Met Sally for this generation…and does a decent job.
Daniel Radcliffe and Zoe Kazan are quirky and appealing, their friendship believable, their banter quick and smart.
She has a boyfriend (who made me laugh), and Daniel has emotional baggage — plus best friend Adam Driver of Girls who has huge energy…and is huge standing next to Daniel (which is pretty funny right there).
This is a rom-com, so there are misunderstandings, yearning, romantic postcards (in this day and age), implusive international flights, fist fights, and at least two weddings — babies, too.
What if that stuff still worked in films?
You know — it kinda does.
