The Favor is a pleasant romantic comedy, aimed at thirtysomethings and younger, and it affords solid roles for Harley Jane Kozak and Elizabeth McGovern. [29 Apr 1994]

When all is said and done, The Favor is just another comedy about comfortable yuppies wondering what they might have done differently, dipping a toe in adventure, then returning to the cocoon of yuppie comfort. [03 May 1994]

The movie is never much more than fluff. But, like director Donald Petrie's previous film, "Grumpy Old Men," it has an honest core that enables it to keep its balance. [29 Apr 1994]

The Favor is a sex comedy without sex-and pretty much without comedy. [29 Apr 1994]
