What If

Rated PG-13 102 minutes 2014

Nerd wish-fulfillment of the first order, this Canadian rom-com places an artificial barrier between its cute-as-a-button leads and asks us to stick around for an hour and a half until it's artificially removed. Shy, bespectacled Wallace (Daniel Radcliffe) falls for pixieish animator Chantry (Zoe Kazan); she's got a boyfriend, so she and Wallace maintain a warm friendship (the Canadian title was The F Word) while said boyfriend moves to Dublin and ultimately loses interest in her. When Wallace finally admits to Chantry that he's been in love with her all along, she considers this a betrayal, because that's what women like her do in movies like this before they realize that being adored is more fun than getting dicked around. Michael Dowse (Goon) directed.
