Editorial Reviews

Jennifer Love Hewitt (TV's "Ghost Whisperer") stars as a talented young singer/songwriter who's met the love of her life (Paul Nicholls, Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason) while studying classical music in London. Unfortunately, on the very day they have a major fight, she's involved in a terrible accident. But when fate miraculously intervenes, her grief-stricken boyfriend gets a second chance to relive the tragic day - and hopefully change their destiny - in this gripping romantic drama.

4.0 out of 5 stars "If Only" It Could Be Released In U.S. Theatres August 30, 2005
By R.C.G.
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I am a big fan of Jennifer Love Hewitt's, but even I can recognize that most of her roles have been one dimensional. The teen in distress chased by a lunatic, the teen in distress attending a party, the young woman in distress over her con-artist mother. Most of her roles require very little acting ability. Finally, If Only comes along, a movie which she financed and produced through her Love Spell Entertainment Company.

The story is about a young woman named Samantha who is seriously neglected by her boyfriend Ian. After arguing, and breaking up, a tragedy occurs and there is loss for one of the characters. Fortunately, this being a fantasy-romantic drama, the couple get to relive their day all over again.

If you lost someone and had the opportunity to go back and do things differently, what would you change? That is the question that this film asks, and ultimately it proves that Love never dies. If Only Love Hewitt was given more opportunities to shine. Watch for this movie coming to ABC Family Channel in January 2006, and to DVD shortly after. If you like romantic movies like the far superior Love Story, you won't be disappointed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Instant Replay ... of Sorts May 29, 2006
Christina Welsh has written a fine screenplay that proves that old ideas can be re-worked in a thoroughly original way. Gil Junger steps out of his role as a director for TV series and molds Welsh's story into a visually charming and sensible, touching movie. Add the considerable talents of one highly regarded pro (Tom Wilkinson) and two underrated young bright lights (Jennifer Love Hewitt and Paul Nicholls) and the result is a little film that is polished, absorbing, and genuinely tender.

Samantha (Hewitt) is a musician living and studying in London where she is in a healthy relationship with a handsome young executive Ian (Nicholls): though obviously in love, Ian is more involved with his work than Samantha would like and on the day of her 'finals concert' they have a spat over several issues. On his way to his all-important meeting Ian encounters a taxi driver (Wilkinson) who gives him some sage advice about his love life. Abruptly Samantha is killed in a freak auto accident and Ian is devastated. In his grief he strangely awakens to the same day in which Samantha was killed, and through a series of working through the elements of his life where he failed her (with a bit of aid from the taxi driver), Ian has an 'If only' experience, a time to re-evaluate his love for Samantha, his life, and his changes. A twist in the events brings the story to a surprise but apropos ending.

From what could have been yet another love-death tearjerker of a Hollywood movie emerges a story with heart and with some poignant lessons for us all. Hewitt proves a fine actress in this film and is beautifully paired by the exciting presence of relative newcomer Paul Nichols. It is not a great movie, but it is one that will pleasantly surprise viewers who may have though it was just another 'chick flick'. Give it a chance - it is worth it! Grady Harp, May 06

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent made-for-TV movie for a Sunday afternoon! March 7, 2006
First I must say, this is not quite your typical made-for-tv movie: it didn't feel like it was made low-budget & I thought the cast did very well. I saw a preview for this on TV one day, & set my Tivo to record it: I was so glad I did! The storyline was well-written, & just when I thought I had figured out the movie & knew the ending, I was wrong: it kept me guessing the entire time!

It was heartfelt, moving & even funny: but definitely bring a box of tissues when you watch this one, as it is a bit of a tear-jerker as well. I was expecting them to follow the atypical sappy romance formula, without much originality (a type of movie I happen to love anyways), but I was pleasantly surprised by this movie in: the script, the cast & the quality.

All in all, I would highly recommend this to anyone who is a romantic at heart!

4.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly entertaining January 13, 2007
By Peg
I found this movie while channel surfing. I like JLH in Ghost Whisperer, so I stopped and started watching just where he find out he has another chance. I tivo'd it and I'm glad I did. It was just a lovely, sappy story that kept me company folding laundry on a snowy Saturday afternoon. I liked it a lot. I really liked that he learned and grew from the experience even if it last that long. The biggest surprise for me was that Jen can sing! I guess I'm dating myself by saying that I didn't know that. She's good, the music was good and I am going to go in search of the soundtrack. Enjoy!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars appreciate her September 25, 2010
By jelyan
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Incredibly moving, lighthearted at times, IF ONLY is one of those movies that brings about conflicting emotions at the same time. The story is quite simple: Samantha (Hewitt) is, as she put it, a very distant second in her boyfriend Ian's (Nicholls) life and she is tired of it. Ian loves her, to be sure, but does not act on it. When Samantha suddenly dies, Ian regrets everything he did--or rather, did not do--when he had the chance to. But then, the morning after, he wakes up and Samantha is at his side, as alive as anyone, and it dawns on him that he's been given a second chance. Life, destiny, whatever you call it, pressed the rewind button on his life and allowed him to finally appreciate her, to actually love her.

I thought the movie was well done; like I said, very simple, nothing fancy. The leads fit their roles quite well. As a few reviewers have pointed out, Jennifer Love Hewitt isn't the greatest actress out there; however, in all the flicks I've seen her in, this was the one where she showed that she could actually act and do it well, given the right script, co-actors, director, etc. I found her very charming and likable in this movie. Paul Nicholls also gave a good performance as the cold, neglectful boyfriend; even more so when during the "rewind", as he finally opens up and drops all pretenses and just simply loves her.

This is a sad love story; so if you're the type to cry at the littlest things, I'd say be prepared and watch this with a handkerchief or tissues nearby. You'll leave feeling a little sad and wistful but in a good way..
