What If...A Christian Movie That Delivers!
12 September 2010 | by kristinemcguireSee all my reviews

Have you ever wondered what your life would be like if you had made different choices? Can we really have a second chance in life to do things differently?

What If...a new Christian movie in theatrical release from Pure Flix Entertainment starring Kevin Sorbo, Kristy Swanson, Debby Ryan, and John Ratzenberger offers a whimsical look into one man's life and the choices he's made over a fifteen year period. The story follows a similar theme as the classic "It's a Wonderful Life" but with a little twist.

What If... is currently playing at one of our local theaters, so I went to see it this afternoon. I cannot tell you how much I love this movie! Everything about the production is top quality (not to mention the added bonus that some of it was filmed in MY city...hooray for Grand Rapids, MI!) and I am thrilled to encourage everyone I know to go out and see it. This is a movie filled with humor and a wonderful message reminding us of God's love and that He has a good plan for each one of our lives.

Here's the plain and simple: What If... truly delivers from beginning to end! Great story, superior acting, and just fun to watch.

By the way, hat's off to Pure Flix Entertainment! A Christian production company which is obviously stepping up it's game and offering top quality movies for all audiences. I can't wait to see what they give us next, especially if it's performed with the same excellence as "What If..."

So if your looking for a great family film check out the official What If... website and find out when and where it's playing in your area. If it's not available then make sure you join the campaign to bring the film to your city because your going to want to take your whole church on a field trip to see it! It would also make an awesome date night movie (hint, hint!)
