The unexpected bromance steals the show.

When it comes to romantic comedies, it’s not uncommon for the audience to focus on the main couple and their love story. But sometimes, it's the male friendships through thick and thin that steal the show.

And that's certainly the case with Daniel Radcliffe and Adam Driver in this $8M rom-com that may have flown under your radar.

In the world of indie rom-coms, What If (also known as The F Word) stands out as a hidden gem with its charming characters, relatable storylines, and witty jokes. Starring Daniel Radcliffe as Wallace, a reserved and introverted young man, and Adam Driver as Allan, his extroverted and confident friend, the movie explores the complications of love.

Wallace's bad luck with unsuccessful romantic relationships has left him feeling burned out. However, things change when Allan introduces him to his cousin Chantry, played by Zoe Kazan. Wallace develops a connection with her, but she happens to be in a long-term relationship.

What follows is a series of events that lead to a bumpy road of romance, filled with unexpressed feelings. The viewers are taken on a journey as the two attempt to interpret what it means when one of your closest friends also happens to be the love of your life.

However, what has truly captured the hearts of the audience is Wallace and Allan's platonic chemistry, which is even more powerful than any romantic pairing. At first glance, it may seem that their personalities are too different to form a strong bond. While Wallace prefers to spend his time rearranging poetry magnets on a fridge at parties, Allan is a social butterfly.

But as the movie progresses, their complementary personalities prove to be the perfect combination for a friendship. Allan's vitality and outgoing nature push Wallace out of his comfort zone, forcing him to confront his fears and take risks.

Meanwhile, Wallace's analytical and risk-averse approach to life keeps Allan grounded and focused on what really matters.

It's clear that the bromance between them is a standout aspect of the film, showcasing the importance of friendship and the impact it can have on our lives, reminding us how much we need the people who challenge us and help us grow. It's a must-watch for anyone looking for a feel-good movie.
