Movie Info

What If tells the story of Ben Walker, who fifteen years ago left his college sweetheart Wendy, and his calling to be a preacher, in order to pursue a business opportunity. Now with a high-paying executive gig, a trophy fiancé, and a new Mercedes, he hasn't considered a family nor felt the need to set foot in a church in fifteen years. But God has other plans. While on a thrill ride outside the city, his new car mysteriously breaks down, and he's visited by a tow truck driver named Mike who claims to be an angel sent to show Ben what his life would look like had he followed his true calling.

Critic Reviews for What If...

All Critics (6)

Predictable faith-based movie is heavy-handed and trite.

I felt affection for the film growing as I watched. It pulled me in with its warmth and its performances.

Aisle Seat

A mash-up of 'It's a Wonderful Life' and the story of Saul's encounter with the heavenly light of Jesus on the road to Damascus, except in this case replace Saul with Kevin 'Hercules' Sorbo and the heavenly light of Jesus with John Ratzenberger.

Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)

A much more faith based remake of Brett Ratner's "The Family Man."

An enchanting, provocative, bighearted story that will inspire you to cherish the priceless values of family, faith, love and compassion.

Ultimately, What If . . . fails before it hits the 10-minute mark.

Audience Reviews for What If...

Slow moving. Got through a half hour of it. Has the overdone "Wonderful Life" scenario. Predictable.

Reminded me (a lot)! of the Nicholas Cage movie, "Family Man" - but with a Christian slant. Obviously not a high-budget film... but still quite enjoyable!

In essence it was the Christian version of "The Family Man". It was sentimental, heart warming and touching. One of the best family films to come along in along time.
