A Simple Favor
A small-town vlogger tries to uncover the truth behind her best friend’s sudden and mysterious disappearance.
“[Director] Paul Feig takes a left turn with the seductively mounted but underwhelming neo-noir-comedy A Simple Favor. A twisted tale of toxic female friendship, the film offers its share of pleasures: eye candy in human, sartorial and real-estate form, as well as the unmistakable flair of a director and performers who know their way around a piece of pop entertainment.” -Jon Frosch –The Hollywood Reporter
“Tone is one of the biggest problems with A Simple Favor, although the needlessly cluttered second-half, which is replete with twists and turns, doesn’t help. In fact, the movie becomes so obsessed with narrative switchbacks that it comes close to straying into self-parody territory.” -James Berardinelli –Reelviews
