Could have been properly great and subversive without those last few scenes. What the hell were they thinking?
The ending was a let down, I mean come on!
The characters were written well but the ending is everything and if you screw that up, there are no redeeming features, in my book.
The F Word - or as you sensitive souls in the US and UK rather more lamely call it, What If - is a Canadian romcom starring Daniel Radcliffe and Zoe Kazan, who play friends with an unspoken attraction between them. Unspoken and unspeakable, which often hits quite close to home, enough so I can forgive it its formulaic (though not TOO formulaic) ending. The principals have great chemistry, the dialog is quirky and feels true to life (especially since I interact with people exactly the same way, i.e. saying "yes" to any proposition no matter how ludicrous as if it were stated fact, just to see how far we can take the "sketch"), and supporting star Adam Driver is, as freakin' usual, freakin' hilarious. Plus, Toronto as Toronto. I love that. Always have. So yes, a romantic comedy with all that entails, but a quirky, funny, sometimes brutal, entry in the genre.
to see which of your friends have seen this movie!
