The delicate balancing act that is “A Simple Favor” is quite impressive.

A Simple Favor Movie Review

It’s a suspenseful thriller with a broad sense of humor (even slapstick at times). One wrong decision could have been fatal; resulting in a self-aware film; one that strained to be “current,” or; worst of all; one that was just plain dull. However; Paul Feig’s film “A Simple Favor” has its cake and eats it too.

It’s thrilling, but also hilarious. It’s informative about the mind games women sometimes engage in with one another, but it doesn’t strive to be “important.”

It isn’t attempting to “say something” about “how we live now” or anything along those lines. What a relief to see a film that isn’t scared to let its hair down.

The quirky, stylized credits sequence (created by David Clayton) instantly tells us that this isn’t going to be a dismal, by-the-book thriller.

The credits feature single-color graphics of stilettos and purses moving about in geometric cut-out forms; a collage of ostentatious consumption; with one of the many great French pop tunes screaming behind it; a throwback to 1960s comedies or spy capers.

Emily’s most well-known remark. Emily Nelson (actual name: Hope McLendon) is the major antagonist in both the film and the novel A Simple Favor.

“A Simple Favor;” Says the Author- Anna Kendrick and Blake Lively Bring a Mystery-comedy Made of Plastic to Life

Anna Kendrick and Blake Lively’s performances in the mystery-comedy “A Simple Favor” are so energizing, so rich with keen inflections and snappy gestures, that they fill the film’s good-humored; abundantly structured void.

A Simple Favor Movie Review

Kendrick twirls lines of dialogue with a lilt and a spin keeps them up in the air for an instant before landing; twirls lines dialogue with a lilt and a spin that keeps them up in the air for an instant before landing; lines of dialogue with a lilt and a spin that keeps them up in the air for an instant before landing; Lively has a melodramatic mystery about it that tells in a glimpse what others struggle to say in a tirade.

The film’s quick and detailed action, set in a cozy Connecticut suburb, allows them to strike people with a gaudy, euphoric diversity of notes, which hang on the busy framework of the film like baubles on a Christmas tree, concealing the fact that it’s made of plastic.

Stephanie Smothers, played by Kendrick, is the widowed mother of a first-grader named Miles (Joshua Satine).

She’s a stay-at-home parent with boundless energy and blithe enthusiasm, who volunteers copiously for community and classroom activities and works tirelessly on her vlog for mothers, which focuses on cooking, crafts, and homilies.

Stephanie is thrown into the overwhelming company of Nicky’s mother; Emily Nelson (Lively); a flamboyantly chic public-relations executive for a New York fashion firm who lives in a high-styled house with her husband; Sean Townsend (Henry Golding); who published a best-selling novel a decade ago but hasn’t written much since and is teaching at a local college.
