What If...

Introducing What if…, a Pure Flix and Jenkins Entertainment film. Starring, Kevin Sorbo, Kristy Swanson, Debby Ryan, and John Ratzenberger.

What if…, from Jerry Jenkins, tells the story of Ben Walker (Kevin Sorbo), who fifteen years ago left his college sweetheart Wendy (Kristy Swanson), and his calling to be a preacher, in order to pursue a business opportunity. Now with a high-paying executive gig, a trophy fiancĂ©, 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 (John Ratzenberger) who claims to be an angel sent to show Ben what his life would look like had he followed his true calling. Suddenly Ben wakes up in the middle of domestic chaos as his wife Wendy and daughters (including Disney Channel’s Debby Ryan) are getting ready for church, where Ben is the new pastor.

Before he can get back to his old life, Ben must first embrace this reality and discover the value of faith and family, and perhaps restore his love for those who were heartbroken fifteen years ago: Wendy and God. In the tradition of It’s a Wonderful Life and The Family Man, What if… is a story of finding your true purpose in life.

View the trailer and spread the word about this powerful, inspiring movie.

It isn't likely I will see What if... in the small theaters here is southern Ohio. But the movie is currently playing in select cities. Follow the link on the What if... site to see if the movie is playing in your area or if you can be an integral part in bringing the movie to your city. Get your friends and church involved in spreading the word. This is a beautiful, warm, funny family movie that needs to get in front of as many audiences as possible.

Yes, the premise of the story does sound a lot like It's A Wonderful Life. I doubt I'll see it until it comes to DVD, though, Hagerstown is a bit far for me to drive just to see a movie. :-(

This sounds like one of those rare movies that actually inspires one to live a better life instead of do something stupid that is likely to get you killed. I didn't know they made movies like this these days!

Good article, and this sounds like a good, clean and inspiring movie. There are too of those these days.
In the future, I will be writing about some of the bad ones as a warning to parents and teachers.

I meant to say that there wenen't too many good movies these days. My letter sounded like I was rooting for the bad guys.
