Movie Review: IF


After seeing the movie IF I lamented never having an imaginary friend and I reckon you will too.

Movie IF

We all know that movies are the perfect place to go when you want to run away from the world for a while, and what could be better than a movie about imaginary friends, nothing.

IF, the movie, is about 12 year old Bea (Cailey Fleming) who discovers that she can see everyone’s imaginary friends. Only problem is the IF’s are with us until we don’t need them anymore and now that their children have grown up the IF’s have been forgotten. What are they to do?

Joined by Cal (Ryan Reynolds) the girl embarks on a magical adventure to reconnect forgotten IFs with their kids.

IF, the movie is about imagination, love, memories and that we all need a friend, even when we’ve grown up.

Included in the cast are the voices of Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Emily Blunt, Blake Lively, Matt Damon, Sam Rockwell and George Clooney to name a few.

Writer and director John Krasinski wrote the part of Blue for Steve Carell and he’s perfect in it. Krasinski also added in a couple of IF’s that belonged to his real life children.

As the credits rolled I pondered:

  1. Ryan Reynolds is wonderful as he helps out on the quest;’
  2. So too Christopher Meloni as the private detective;
  3. Imagine having a dad who could bring you imaginary friend to life?
  4. As with most movies like this you’ll spend some of your time working out which actor is behind which character. Hint, Brad Pitt never looked better;
  5. For the movie nerds, like me, who stay for the credits you will be rewarded. Let’s keep the secret.;
  6. It’s a bit close to home for anyone with family in hospital (like me).
