A Simple Favour - CATCH IT (B+)
In recent times, its rare to watch two genres getting mushed into one and still work. A simple favour took the thriller genre and added comedy in a very subtle way. I believe the work works better because of perfect casting of Anna Kendrick and Blake Lively. Both girls nailed the part and their chemistry is palpable.
Its a perfect movie for a fun night out. The girls are amazing and movie is a complete fun to watch. Go See It!!!
