Trivia:
In Canada and the UK, the movie was called "The F Word." Hollywood changed it to avoid an R rating.See more »
Goofs:
Factual errors: Cultural mistranslations: (1) Allan introduces Wallace as his "roommate from college." Unless they were educated in the US (and we don't actually know this), Wallace and Allan would be "roommates from university." Canadians don't colloquially refer to university as college. (2) Nicole suggests at one point that they discuss "topical events" of the day, such as gay marriage and abortion. These issues are not topical at all in Canada. They have been long settled.See more »
Quotes:
Wallace:I thought a lot about something you said. About how when you realize how quickly everything can fall apart it makes you never want to give up anything good ever again. Whatever this is between us, it is good. It is so good. It is actually the best thing that has ever happened to me, and I don't want it to be over.
Chantry:I don't want it to be over either. I kind of wish we could invent a time machine or something.
Wallace:If we ever invent time travel I would go back to the night we met.
Chantry:[moves in closer] What would you do differently?

Fun Movie, 6 August 2014
Author: Sahl_95 from United Kingdom

'What if' is about Wallace (Daniel Radcliffe), a heart broken medical school dropout who meets Chantry (Zoe Kazan), an animator and Wallace's love interest. The moment they meet, Wallace is in love. Unfortunately for him, Chantry is already in a serious relationship and just wants to be friends.

Like most movies of this genre, you can for the most part guess how this movie progresses. However, that didn't really matter as the movie was fun and quite enjoyable. Most of the jokes were witty and didn't feel forced. All the relationships in the movie were enjoyable to watch as well. All the actors did a great job as well.

At the end, I had a good time watching this movie. It was a good fun movie.
