DH wants to see Piranhas, I want to see Nanny McPhee. The Switch looks good too.

What If sounds eerily familiar... hmmm...Oh I know, it's a total rip off of "The Family Man" staring Nick Cage and Tea "BEN!!!!" Leoni. :oP Slightly different of course but essentially the same movie. It'll probably be better because "BEN!!!!!" isn't in it (I hate Tea Leoni if that's not apparent LOL)

Yeah, a lot of movies have the same sounding plot that "What If" does. I may rent that one, though,
