A Simple Favor ★★★

A Simple Favor brings a delightfully twisted mystery that mostly succeeds, thanks to a wonderful cast. Anna Kendrick is always excellent.‬

‪The movie is a tonal mess, blending comedy and drama to puzzling results, but the story is entertaining and keeps you reeled in.‬ It works in spite of a bland visual style, uneven pacing, and a really ridiculous third act.‬

‪There are plenty of problems to complain about with this movie, but I was honestly entertained for the most part.‬
