What If... is a 2010 drama film directed by Dallas Jenkins. It stars Kevin Sorbo, John Ratzenberger, Kristy Swanson and Debby Ryan. The film was released in theaters on August 20, 2010. It is the first film in a two-movie partnership between Jenkins Entertainment and Pure Flix Entertainment.


When Ben Walker (Kevin Sorbo) was young, he left his girlfriend Wendy (Kristy Swanson) and his hometown calling for a business opportunity. 15 years later, with a high-paying career and a trophy fiancé, he is visited by Mike (John Ratzenberger), an angel, who gives him a glimpse into what his life would look like had he followed his original plans.


What If... was filmed June 28–July 14, 2009, mostly in Manistee, Michigan at 10 West Studios, with some filming done in Grand Rapids, Michigan.[1] Jenkins Entertainment is owned by Jerry B. Jenkins and operated by his son Dallas Jenkins.[2] Jerry will serve as executive producer and Dallas will direct both films. Pure Flix Entertainment will produce and supervise marketing and distribution for the films.[3]



What If... was screened at the Christian Writer's Guild conference in Denver, Colorado. The audience, which included Jerry B. Jenkins and his wife, gave the film a standing ovation.[4]
