IF: A movie aimed more to kids than adults

After directing the first two films in the horror series “A Quiet Place,” John Krasinski’s latest film is a fun, lighthearted comedy that aims more at young kids. Borrowing elements from Cartoon Network’s “Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends,” “IF” feels like a Saturday morning cartoon that will keep children entertained for an hour and a half. In contrast, adults won’t be able to connect with the film since they aren’t the target audience. As for positives, the visual effects used to create the Imaginary Friends look amazing. The performances from the ensemble cast are great, which consists of Cailey Fleming, Ryan Reynolds, John Krasinski, Fiona Shaw, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Steve Carrell, and Louis Gossett Jr. in one of his last film roles following his death back in March. “IF” may have some funny and lighthearted moments and great performances from all the actors involved, but its childlike screenplay feels more aimed at kids than the whole family.
