What If
aka The F Word
First screened in August 2014
Director: Michael Dowse. Cast: Daniel Radcliffe, Zoe Kazan, Adam Driver, Megan Park, Mackenzie Davis, Rafe Spall, Sarah Gadon, Lucius Hoyos, Jemima Rooper. Screenplay: Elan Mastai (based on the play Toothpaste and Cigars by T.J. Dawe and Michael Rinaldi).

Twitter Capsule: Funny enough to survive problems regarding tone, plot, animated whimsy. Radcliffe neutralizes obstacles better than Kazan.

VOR:   Aside from the spectacle of Radcliffe stepping up into romantic roles, this is an amiable diversion but the definition of unadventurous and inessential.
