Honestly, the first film was one of my favourite films to come out in 2018.
It was great fun and both Blake Lively and Anna Kendrick perfect in the film.
The first movie follows a single mother, Stephanie, played by Anna Kendrick who runs a parenting vlog.
She ends up befriending a secretive upper-class woman, Emily, played by Lively who has a child at the same elementary school.
When Emily goes missing, Stephanie decides to investigate and find out where she’s disappeared to.

The film ended up making more than $97 million at the worldwide box office which is pretty good for a film which was made for $20 million.
A Simple Favor was also Certified Fresh status on Rotten Tomatoes and ended up attracting a strong fan base.
This fan base is what Lionsgate will be hoping will result in a lot of people going to the cinema to watch the sequel.
