Highly Suspect Reviews: A Simple Favor

Anna Kendrick plays Stephanie, a widowed super-mom who manages to do it all for her son as well as run an instructional mom vlog. She strikes up a strange opposites-attract friendship with the wild Emily (Blake Lively) but before you know it, this other mom that is breaking Stephanie out of her normal routine mysteriously disappears. Stephanie isn’t exactly the laid-back and don’t worry about it type and she goes full Veronica Mars trying to find out what happened. And that is one seriously twisty and wild path. Director Paul Feig breaks away (not completely, but a lot) from his usual style of film with this comedy-thriller that we have a feeling will surprise you. But what will really surprise you is the strength of feeling coming from all of our critics (Chris, Aaron, and Beau) on this review.

Born in the wilds of northern Virginia, in 1992 Chris managed to put all of his survival skills to use and barely escaped with his life to Austin Texas, where ever since he’s dabbled in everything from plumber’s assistant to sandwich maker, from band to bar management. An opportunity to see theatrical release films for free, by becoming a critic on a local public access show called “The Reel Deal”, turned into a full time job when Chris and his friends decided to take it to the internet. They built the site Spill.com, adding multiple podcasts and animated features, to no small amount of success. During this time, a fortuitous friendship sprung up between Chris and young Brian Salisbury, who was also a local film critic, and they merged their forces of will, and their laundry list of ideas for shows, to eventually build this paradise you see before you.
