The film is essentially a (wo)manhunt for Emily (Lively) after she goes missing one day. Stephanie (Kendrick) is a vloger, and take it upon herself to search for her missing friend, discussing the details of her case with her subscribers.
There are many twists and turns during the course of the film, and you're never quite sure where it is going. The director Paul Feig is a comedy genius, and brings an excellent edge to the film, that livens up what could have been a super serious film. He finds a perfect balance of seriousness and comedy.
I really enjoyed the film, the three leads, Kendrick, Lively, and newcomer Golding are all great. I really do recommend A Simple Favour 8/10
In my opinion, this may be Paul Feig’s crowning achievement.
Kendrick’s character Stephanie does seem to have rather a large character change but manages to stay smart and likeable (the scene with the young boy at the funeral for example) and seriously funny at the same time whilst Lively’s uber-glam Emily is equally watchable, a kind of Cruella de Ville "sans chiens". The three other “mom’s” give some good comedy backup too with razor sharp asides and the plot whilst a bit far-fetched keeps you guessing too.
I would definitely recommend - it’s a very stylish, dark and entertaining film that doesn’t take itself too seriously.
PS Look out for Homelands's Peter Quinn back from the dead too !
