As soon as A Simple Favor hit theaters, I had friends texting me, calling me, and just telling me I needed to see it. Anna Kendrick is one of the stars and she is a vlogger in the movie. I am sure that is one of the main reasons I had friends and family relating me to the movie, since I am a blogger/vlogger. But I am also a huge thriller and mystery movie fan, so this was right up my alley. I finally got to watch it and boy am I glad I did!
Anna Kendrick & Blake Lively
Anna Kendrick and Blake Lively make a great team in A Simple Favor. I immediately wanted to be friends with them – and started comparing their friendship to all of mine. Their chemistry in this movie is so great. At times they were friends, at times I wasn’t sure if they were going to make out, and at times I thought they might strangle each other. It really was great to see them on the big screen together, and I would love to do so again!
The Twist Was Great (Though Predictable)
There is a major twist in this movie and I did not see it coming. Of course my husband did. And he blurted it out. From that moment on I could tell that he was right. All the pieces of the puzzle were being put together to prove that. However, there were a couple other small twists that came out of the blue for both of us, which made me enjoy the movie more.
The Ending Was A Little Off
Now I admit, the first time I watched A Simple Favor, I totally loved it. It wasn’t until talking to some of my friends who watched it as well, that I realized I should re-watch the ending. When I did, I noticed it was a little off. There was a lot of out of place comedy – but it did not take away from the movie to me. I still really enjoy the film, so much so that is almost broke in to my top 10 favorite movies of 2018. It didn’t, but almost did.
Overall, I really enjoyed this film, and so did my husband. I am super excited that I received a copy of the book as well, and I cannot wait to dig in to it!
