An Irish mob story set in 1970s Hell's Kitchen. After the mobsters are sentenced to jail, their wives take their place — and do as good of a job, if not better.
"An offense against feminism, narrative logic and Fleetwood Mac, “The Kitchen” is a terrible, witless mess. Set in New York in the late 1970s, it spins a pandering story about three wallflower wives — played by Melissa McCarthy, Tiffany Haddish and Elisabeth Moss — who transform into crime bosses after their gangster husbands are sent up the river."
"The Kitchen, a late summer, female-led adaptation of a little-known DC comic, is the worst kind of bad movie. That’s because it has all the ingredients of a good movie, from a juicy premise to a stellar cast, yet it’s assembled with such staggering incompetency that from the very first scene it boils over into one star territory, all promise evaporating from the screen."
