A Simple Favor

A Simple Favor

A slight divergence from my usual dog post but, last night I went to the movies and watched A Simple Favor. WOW! That was the most interesting yet confusing movie I have ever seen. Once the credits started rolling, my friends and I just sat there for about five minutes processing our thoughts. Twenty four hours later and I am still processing.

I am not going to give any spoilers about the movie, just a few of my thoughts. Going into the movie I really didn’t know what it was about other than it had Blake Lively who I love and Anna Kendrick who I do not like. They both played their roles perfectly and I left the movie loving Emily (Blake Lively) and hating Stephanie (Anna Kendrick). The plot twist and turns were so unpredictable. I never saw any of the events coming. Especially the ending! In fact, my friends and I kept trying to predict the next plot twist and never got one correct. I also really liked that the movie was different from the book. I feel like a lot of times when making a movie it is very similar to the book so it was exciting to not know what to expect.

I love going to a movie and it being such a surprise. I really hope that movies like this will continue to be made as going to the movies is such a fun past time. I also really hope that theaters can stand the test of time and survive the ever increasing use of technology. All and all I recommend everyone go see this movie!

I also was a big fan of the movie! I thought it was a great tactic for Blake Lively to advertise it so heavily on her Instagram the way she did, as she does have such loyal followers. If more production companies do this then they would save a ton on marketing!

I’ve been wondering if people would recommend seeing this movie, so I’m glad to hear that you enjoyed it. I love a movie where you cannot predict the plot! I also love that you added your hopes that theaters continue to survive because going to the movie theater with friends can be so fun, and I hate that movie-streaming has so negatively affected this industry.

This was so exciting to read! I have been seeing commercials for A Simple Favor for weeks now, and have been debating if it would be something worth the time, money, and effort to go see. I am also a huge fan of Blake Lively, and thought that the movie would be worth seeing solely because of her. Blake has been taking to her social media a lot lately to promote the movie, and she has definitely created a lot of buzz and interest in the movie. Thank you for your review! I am excited to check it out.
