A Simple Favo(u)r is what happens when Paul Feig watches Gone Girl and tries to do it himself but gets a bit too excited and carried away and forgets to forget that he’s Paul Feig. You’d think after the travesty of the Ghostbusters remake (fe-make? Did anyone invent that term already or did I just do it?) he’d be banned from making any more films but apparently not so he went and made this one. It’s a pretty good one and thingy and thingy are mostly great but it’s just a bit goofy and, as trendy folk are wont to say these days, extra.

I rate it some smaller quantity of something out of some more numerous quantity of something vaguely similar to the first something.
