If there's a reason to see "A Simple Favor," it's to watch Lively slink into a (seemingly) femme fatale role.For the big tonal swings in "A Simple Favor" to work, the characters needed to be more plausibly grounded. Lively and Kendrick's early scenes ping-pong nicely with odd-couple chemistry, but "A Simple Favor" loses the thread, and never shakes the feeling of a rushed Gillian Flynn knockoff.The material of "A Simple Favor" isn't quite up to Feig's high standards, though."A Simple Favor" is screening in Beirut-area theaters.
