What If – A Review

I have to say I was pleasantly surprised by this film  This is not my usual thing but I thought I would give it a try. If you like things like It’s a Wonderful Life you will definitely like this one. The performances by Kevin Sorbo, John Ratzenberger and Kirsty Swanson are brilliant. The story is of a guy Ben Walker (Kevin Sorbo) who 15 years earlier  left his girlfriend Wendy (Kirsty Swanson) in order to pursue riches and success in the business world. When on the verge of marriage to an equally materialistic fiance, he is visited by an angel in disguise as a tow truck driver (John Ratzenberger) who shows him what his life would have been like had he followed his original calling. Before he can argue, Ben is suddenly married to Wendy and the father of two daughters he also discovers that he is the new pastor at a struggling church. If he wants to go back to his old life, he first has to learn some  lessons about commitment, family, and God, and boy, does he mess up along the way. It is quite funny and at times sad. Well worth watching even if it isn’t your usual thing.
