WHAT IF opens with Ben leaving his beloved, Wendy, for a brief period of time to gain his fame and fortune so he cane return and they can marry. Cut to fifteen years later when Ben is a high-powered, very successful investment banker who can connect the dots so well that he can understand where a deal is going. His uncanny ability is incisive and funny.
To celebrate a big deal, Ben buys himself a brand new Mercedes. When he takes it for a spin, he ends up on the outskirts of his old hometown. There, he meets an angel who introduces him to life as it could have been if he had married his beloved Wendy and become a pastor 15 years ago as he planned. Suddenly, Ben finds himself with two daughters and the new pastor of the church.
Ben preaches one of the worst sermons ever and makes a mess of everything. Slowly, he begins to understand what is worthwhile in life and what isn’t, but it may be too late.
Kevin Sorbo does a terrific job as Ben. Another bright light in the movie is John Ratzenberger. He is the funniest angel to come along in a long time. The dialogue is terrific. Some of it is laugh-out-loud funny.
What makes the movie work is the direction. Dallas Jenkins exercises his considerable talent to bring out the best in each actor and tell the story in a heartwarming, interesting, hilarious, evangelistic manner.
