A Simple Favor

Criminally underrated.

Comedy mastermind Paul Feig scores with a sensationally sinful tale of murder and intrigue most slick, in this hyper-stylish tale of two very different women (Anna Kendrick and Blake Lively) both looking to score big time.

The former is a vlogger most at home in the kitchen, the latter a femme fatale seemingly plucked from film noir days, slinky and devious and full of surprises.

Twist upon twist lands with a satisfying thunk, as the plot loops around and around, before everything clicks into place in the torrid, and unexpected, finale.

This is as good as it gets.
