A Simple Favor ★★½

I’m sorry, but this tonal mishmash of a mystery—which appears from the reviews to be custom made for audiences who either (a) didn’t get Gone Girl or (b) didn’t agree with Gone Girl’s gender politics*—is ultimately betrayed by its cliché of a twist ... You know what, I’m not sorry.


(* And I’m sorry, but characterizing this  as a parody would be giving the filmmakers way too much credit.)
