WHAT IF is the story of medical school dropout Wallace (Daniel Radcliffe), who's been repeatedly burned by bad relationships. So while everyone around him, including his roommate Allan (Adam Driver) seems to be finding the perfect partner (Mackenzie Davis), Wallace decides to put his love life on hold. It is then that he meets Chantry (Zoe Kazan) an animator who lives with her longtime boyfriend Ben (Rafe Spall). Wallace and Chantry form an instant connection, striking up a close friendship. Still, there is no denying the chemistry between them, leading the pair to wonder, what if the love of your life is actually your best friend? The ensemble romantic comedy costars Megan Park and Oona Chaplin.

NOT your typical romantic comedy, in which the characters meet and are intimate early on, then spend the rest of the movie navigating the conflicts that undoubtedly arise when the relationship is surface, to start.
Also not your typical rom-com, in that none of the characters' behaviors during relationship transitions (or during catalysts that cause relationship transitions) are predictable. i.e. Characters X and Y don't break up because Y slept with someone else while they were together.
Both Wallace and Chantry are developed well as characters. They're both sympathetic, their trials are relatable/believable, and their friendship is so genuine.
Adam Driver's character is a jerk, but an amazingly self-aware jerk. It's kind of refreshing.
Chantry's sister's character seems to function only as a plot device, meant to move things forward or mark certain milestones in the development of Chantry's character. I wish we were able to know more about her.
Overall: I loved this movie because it was unpredictable, fun, charming, and relatable enough to be entertaining, but not so much that I felt like I was watching my own life on the screen, which can be boring and anxiety-inducing.
Definitely recommend watching.
This movie is proof that you can entertain an audience without a sledgehammer.
