A Simple Favor Reviews

Like at-a-crossroads suburban mom Stephanie this tries on different outfits, unsure what it wants to be. Tonally it's all over the place though there's still much to recommend: the dynamic performances from Kendrick and Lively and (of course) the clothes.

A Simple Favor is so deliciously fun that it should be a crime. [Full review in Spanish]

It's hard to say it doesn't do what it aims to do, but it leaves no lasting impression and feels slightly like an over budget made-for- TV movie.

Following, quite unashamedly, in the wake of Gone Girl comes another enjoyably trashy femme-noir thriller that plays on the allure of transgressive naughtiness in supposedly wholesome suburbia.

A Simple Favor works as a comedy and as a drama but the intersection of those two halves is choppy at best, forced at worst.

A Simple Favour may not be the drastic change of pace people would expect due to the marketing involved, but it is still an extravagantly entertaining trifle, thanks to Anna Kendrick and Blake Lively and Paul Feig's devilishly playful direction.

Despite the unevenness of the film, we laughed a lot and all laughs justify any slips. [Full Review in Spanish]

The script never manages to effectively solve the challenge posed by any literary adaptation. [Full review in Spanish]

A Simple Favor may look sweet and innocent enough, but it has a bite that really gives it life -- and makes it well worth your time.

A Simple Favor is a classy, humorous, and often outrageous thriller.
October 24, 2018
After success in comedy, Paul Feig bets on thrillers and returns with great results. [Full Review in Spanish]

A Simple Favor proves that when the ideas are clear and the interpretations achieved, there is no proposal that is shipwrecked in the attempts to present oneself a way and to want to be something else. [Full Review in Spanish]

Anna Kendrick plays sweet duckling to Blake Lively's devious snake; evolving from people-pleasing codependent to whip-smart snake-catcher -- very, very watchable.

This film is funny and entertaining -- very important given that with the hindsight of about 10 minutes the movie's plot slowly starts to unravel.

A Simple Favor isn't very memorable, but at least you won't be annoyed by stereotypes or misogyny while watching it.
Full Review | Original Score: 4.00/5

The final result is entirely entertaining and enjoyable, if not little too trashy and messy to be anything more than a Sunday afternoon timekiller.

Paul Feig is a modern-day George Cukor.

...an almost passable misfire that should've topped out at about 90 minutes.

The leading ladies are deliciously inspired, marrying all the disparate tones with as much ease, flair, and detail as the costumes, chic soundtrack, and aspirational production design.
