    if not more than

    I saw a sentencel like this:
    The setting for the premiere promised to be as grand, if not more, than the film itself.

    I don't think the underlined part is correct. I think it should be "to be as grand, if not more than, as the film itself". Do you agree with me? Thanks.

    Re: if not more than

    original might be ok
    yours is definitely wrong. i understand what you're trying to do with the agreement/parallelism, but no

    i would say 'if not more SO,'
