“A Simple Favor” is a splashy, thrilling and eccentric film that leaves the gates at 100 mph and refuses to slow down. It is the perfect blend of rom-com, mystery and psychological thriller. “A Simple Favor” may not, however, be everyone’s cup of tea. It is rated R and earns its rating within ...

When my mom told me that was the movie we were going to see, I was not especially looking forward to it; the previews made it look extra-childish and over-dramatized.
