[A Simple Favor] is twisted and raunchy, as all high budget Lifetime movies should be.

The sheer number of twists and turns in the narrative - especially during the third act - is mind-boggling, and some viewers may find themselves jumping off this speeding train long before it crashes into the station.

Intentionally hilarious and slyly sexy and shocking.

A Simple Favor is filmed with a ton of style and panache and while I'm not sure all the plot devices hold up to deep scrutiny it is an enjoyable whodunit to watch.

A weird exposition of americana mixed with a complex plot. Weirdly it works. [Full review in Spanish].

Though messy at times, with some hit or miss humor, the core cast is so engaging and the mystery is just compelling enough that the offbeat tone works perfectly.

The film contains a soupcon of drama, a morsel of mystery and more than a dash of dark humour.

Thanks to a smart script and great performances from its leading ladies, A Simple Favour is a surprisingly old-fashioned thriller that's never, ever dull.

"A Simple Favor" is basically "Gone Girl" with a sense of humor.

A Simple Favor has all the makings of a classic thriller helmed by Alfred Hitchcock or French contemporary Henri-Georges Clouzot, whose Diabolique is referenced here.

For those who may have written off Lively as a teen sensation now relegated to playing leggy blondes in B-list films like 2016's "The Shallows," her performance is a revelation.
January 18, 2019
Piling on bizarre turns and deliriously aware of its own outlandishness, it is a wicked whodunit.
January 18, 2019
A fluffy throwback to the B-movie thrillers of the 50s, with girls who are very good at being bad, plowing through a plot with more twists than a Wetzel's Pretzel.

In "A Simple Favor," everyone is not exactly who they appear to be. The fun is being part of a game that keeps you guessing until the end.

This pulpy nonsense goes down easier than a gin martini.

[A Simple Favor has] the music, the script, the direction, the acting, and the thrills. There wasn't a single moment where I felt bored, or that my attention wandered or was feigned.

A rather delightful concoction of costumes, cocktails, and two underestimated actresses fitting together at the strangest of angles.

Anna Kendrick shines as a young mom coming into her own sense of self and power in this quirky mashup of film noir and comedy.
Full Review | Original Score: 9

Outstanding for about an hour, thanks to its unexpectedly dark themes, its mordant humor, and a knockout performance by Lively.
