Slick style and ludicrous plot twists.
|A Simple Favor is an entertaining, wild ride of twisting madness. It’s a movie full of contradictory tones, styles and characters none of which should be in the same movie, and yet they all belong in this movie. Director Paul Feig had a very clear vision, something like Gone Girl meets The Stepford Wives and it all worked. It mostly all worked. The maddening heights that the madness reaches can be maddening, but before we get there it’s a funny thriller about interesting people.
