‘IF’ struggles in opening weekend…

Imaginary friends don’t bring real dollars

Ryan ReynoldsThe new movie “IF” must have a lot of imaginary friends in the audience… because it’s a box office hit despite its star-studded cast.

Delivery time Reports indicate that the film grossed just $10.3 million on Friday — including previews — and is headed toward an opening of just $30 million… below initial projected estimates.

Plus, there’s another negative for the new creative pic… critics seem to want it to disappear like a kids’ IF movie when they grow up – it currently has a shockingly low rating of 49%. Rotten tomatoes Despite the all-star cast.
