Very good. - A Simple Favour review by MP

Spoiler Alert
12/10/2018

Saw this in the cinema and was pleasantly surprised. Don't be fooled into thinking it's a 'chick flick' as it's definitely not. It's very good and despite guessing the twist half way through I still enjoyed. Both leads are great and it's the first time I've since Blake Lively in anything and she was excellent in her role. Definitely give it a go!.

Unconvincing comedy mystery - A Simple Favour review by Alphaville

Spoiler Alert
30/01/2019

A vlogging mom (Anna Kendrick) befriends another who disappears. Kendrick is thankfully a bit less irritating than usual, but her limited emotional range and mugging to camera remain an acquired taste. After an hour or so the mystery deepens, but the lightweight tone, as Woody Allen has found out before, robs the plot of any drama. The ho-hum sub-Gone-Girl resolution fails to convince and is eventually played for laughs, with lots of shots of Kendrick vlogging to camera. The alternative ending on the DVD even develops into nauseating musical theatre.

You may well feel short-changed, especially if you’ve been enticed by the brilliant British trailer, which plays mostly without dialogue to an evocative Coeur de Lion song. The song, which isn’t in the film, adds an air of darkness and sophistication that’s at total odds with the film itself. Listen to the album instead.

great murder mystery - A Simple Favour review by DR

Spoiler Alert
31/01/2019

Beautifully filmed , it reminded me of how Tom Ford concentrates on every shot having meaning.Also great music , really nice twist to have so many French songs.The plot has enough twists and turns to keep you guessing throughout although the ending was slightly contrived. Although I wouldn't say I was a fan of the Anna Kendrick films I have seen up to this one, she plays the part to perfection as does Blake Lively.
