“As bright and bracing as an ice-cold gin martini with a lemon twist, and just as satisfying.” LA TIMES
“Sly and sweet with an acid finish, "A Simple Favor" is a female-friendship comedy with neo-noir ambitions.” NEW YORK TIMES
“Thanks to the stylish direction by Paul Feig, a whip-smart screenplay by Jessica Sharzer (adapting Darcey Bells’ novel) and performances that pop from the screen, A Simple Favor is a sharp-edged delight.” CHICAGO SUN-TIMES
