A Simple Favor
LOVED IT!!!! #LINDA CARDELLINI!!!! AND 4 STARS
What started off interesting ended up stupid.
An intriguing, very different movie -- kept you wondering just what was happening and what would happen next! Anna Kendrick ("Stephanie") did a great job.
Stupid. Contrived. Boring. Check your brain out with your jacket and get ready to euthanise 2 hours of your life.
Hated if but tolerated if only bcoz my wife made me go.
From the opening titles to the tune of "Watching The Girls Go By" (in French) I knew I was in for a fun ride and I was NOT disappointed.
Kendrick was perfect as the frenetic single mother, determined to fit into the much more worldly (and deliciously wicked) Lively's world.
I like a film I cannot figure out in the first 20 minutes and this one had me guessing and re-guessing as I tried to untie the tangled web of lies and half-truths, while trying to figure out exactly whose lies they were.
My advice; don't read too much into this one. Simply make a really stiff martini, strap in and enjoy the ride!
Slow to develop, gratuitous bad language, long and boring monologs and unconnected music score; wasn't sure where the story was going or if it was supposed to be a comidy or a serious drama. Left theater after the first 30 minutes and fortunately found a nearby watering-hole to make up for a busted evening at the movie.
It’s worth seeing - yes, a bit quirky, and seems convoluted in the storyline, but the ending is great and overall, is entertaining
Great subtle humor. Acting superb. Plot surprises every moment.
I didn't expect the humor and the suspense to work so well in this feature. Both actresses added their own magic and mystic to the plot to make it a hit on my list.
What started off as a strong film became foolish. The french all sounded japanese.
