A Simple Favor – a lightweight mystery

This movie is in the same vein as those sleek French mystery/dramedy. It even utilize mostly French songs in the soundtrack. This movie definitely does not take itself seriously by mixing the cute quirks of Anna Kendrick’s persona with the arrogant + vulgar persona of Blake Lively’s character in the movie. Actor Henry Golding (the lead from Crazy Rich Asian) rounded out the trio of the lead cast. Watching this movie is kinda like taking a gondola cruise around the river  canals in Venice or cruising on the beachside drive in Pacific Grove with the top down. A leisurely outing, to be precise. Not a bad way to pass 1 hour and 40 minutes of your life, if you have the time to spare.
