Interviews With The IF Cast & Review

We loved the film IF. The movie delivers a lot of heart and teaches everyone to keep the magic alive. It is fun, silly and will have everyone shedding a tear in the theater and thinking about their childhood or imaginary friend.

This past Saturday we saw the movie on the Paramount Lot.  See all the fun we had here.

On Monday the kids were asked to interview the cast for the film. It was a pinch me moment to chat with Steve Carell, John Krasanski, Ryan Reynolds and the beautiful Cailey Fleming. 

In the film Bea (Cailey Fleming) discovers she can see everyone's imaginary friends and embarks on a magical adventure to reconnect forgotten IFs with their kids. Bea has gone through a lot and is forcing herself to grow up, but she meets Cal (Ryan Reynolds) and re-discovers her belief in the unbelievable. Bea needed a distraction as life was getting tougher for her and helping these imaginary friends is just what she needed. Ryan Reynolds and Cailey Fleming’s relationship on screen is magical. They get along perfectly and you can feel their natural connection. John Krasinski’s role as Bea’s father is amazing. He is silly, loving and fun, and does not want Bea to give up on being a child. He jokes around with her a lot throughout the movie, even when she tells him to stop. His response is “never.” John Krasinski not only stars in the film, but he wrote and directed it as well.

IF is a fantastic film that is perfect for the entire family. The cast is outstanding and the CGI work is so impressive. This movie will bring you right back to your childhood in all the most magical ways. Caily Fleming is remarkable. The IF’s are designed so well and there is something special about all of them. They look so real on the screen and you will fall in love with them immediately. Cailey does an amazing job working with the IF’s that obviously were not really there during filming.

The film’s message deals with healing yourself and creating distractions when life gets difficult. It teaches us to never lose the joy in life, keep the magic alive and believe in the unbelievable. It is about family, friendship and always having someone who is there for you, even if you have to make believe. The movie is the perfect length and never drags on.

We give IF 5 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 8 to 12, plus adults. You can watch IF in theaters this Friday, May 17.
