One-line Reviews (102)

Plenty of plot twists that break away from the formulaic scripts that Hollywood can't seem to stop making.

Like I say, one helluva ride, and entertaining through and through.

then I fell asleep .

Waste of time .

Predictable, poorly written, and ridiculously unrealistic, The Kitchen is one of the worst, and most disappointing films of 2019.

So today's movie had me concerned that a political thriller was on our way and potentially a slow-moving film like Widows before it.

As such, waiting for the ending was a little boring, stuck in the artistic and political components that it was a little slow and drawn out for me.

Don't waste your money seeing this movie.

Total waste of money.

It's amazing how she went from getting an Oscar nomination for Straight Outta Compton to making one of the worst movies of the year.

I enjoyed the 1970s fashion the ladies were stunning the cinematography was good, the storyline was kickass.

It was just supposed to be an enjoyable movie.

Widows is a slow burn psychological thriller.

I now understand why I kept falling asleep.

Strange but engrossing hard to peg .

It was a colossal waste of time and money.

So boring.

Excellent cast, really entertaining movie.

The aforementioned issues really hamper the piece, though, as they ensure that emotion is always kept at arms length and that you're never really engaged, leading to a repetitive and ultimately boring film.

Not too too bad, but gets rather boring .

Strange mix but worth watching.

The script and direction is boring and dumb.

This movie was kind of like "Widows", but somewhat hard to follow (at least for me).

Elisabeth Moss was so intense.

We're all gonna wake up one day hungover from the age of PC agenda flicks and we'll look at them as anomalies in the sense of the Goebbels propaganda machine.

Refreshing and Entertaining .

The direction is boring and filled with lots of mindless chase down a gangster and shoot them in broad day light with lots of witnesses.

This had great potential with amazing female leads however, script was off, confusing and lacking a storyline.

Honestly, I think that was the worst movie I've ever seen.

Sadly some writing of the movie is too bland.

Don't waste your time or money.

Great choice - twistedly enjoyable.

Very boring and promote hate toward men.

I beg you do not waste your money or time, my girlfriend even hated it and she is the worst movie reviewer ever.

Every twist and progression in the story and character arcs feel both unexpected and rewarding.

First off, the movie suffers from linearity and predictable components.

Why the 2 stars you might ask; well I enjoyed the way the film looked cinematically, besides that; a complete waste of time and effort.

Bad acting from McCarthy and crew make this a long boring snoozefest.

The plot is boring and dull from the script by Andrea Berloff.

The gals all played their roles well, but their story was just bland and unconvincing from the start.

Bored to freaking death.

Funny how putting female faces on done-to-death stereo type male roles, in done-to-death male centric stories, shoots a whole new flavor of adrenaline off the screen.

Disappointing waste of time and talent .

I enjoyed it.

Totally unwatchable and unbelievable.

Boring .

;) I got bored in the second half.

and enjoyable to boot.

Has some plot twists but are predictable and every life changing action takes 30 seconds to happen in this film.

Generally, I enjoyed it.

I rather watching paint dry like a guy saying in the film!

I was bored the whole time watching this disaster.

Wow, that was the worst movie I've seen in years.

The tone was very confusing to me.

I was excited as the actreses are awesome but the direction was terrible, this movie was boring predictable and they tried to glamorize or normalize sick behavior!

The story is just generic and, thus, predictable right the way through.

Stunning and fierce.

No story.. boring, so long not worth it , I don't get the points or the meaning

Snore fest .

Engaging .

This is so bad it's unwatchable.

My husband and I just watched this movie and really enjoyed it.

Worst Movie Of The Year .

But just taking the movie as it is , I really enjoyed it.

Approaching this movie with some trepidation since it was both a critical and commercial flop, I ended up being pleasantly surprised, as The Kitchen turned out to be a pretty entertaining watch.

Yes, crime is wrong, but this story was compelling and drew us in.

This is now the worst movie for me of the year.

An interesting and engaging watch.

Melissa McCarthy is stunning .

'The Kitchen (2019)' is a tonally inconsistent comic-book adaptation that's as frustrating as it is dull; its behind-the-scenes talent are all top-tier, from Oscar-nominated writer-director Berloff to Oscar-nominated editor Tellefsen, and its on-screen stars are just as acclaimed, with Oscar-nominated McCarthy, Golden Globe-winner Moss and Emmy-winner Haddish making up the leading trio.

I left the film just feeling empty and would probably forget about this film after watching it.

it is well acted and enjoyable.

Out of the three women, Elizabeth Moss's character was the closest to entertaining to watch just because she has a troubled past.

I enjoyed it.

Waste of time, bad acting, bad story, boring, stupid, predictable...

It's mostly just forgettable and bland with some great actresses in an underwhelming movie.

Very entertaining - great actresses, interesting twist .

This started out very good with a lot of potential and excitement but got really boring by the end, which should have played out differently.

Seeing her discover new talents and her true persona is as exciting for us as it is for her.

This movie was entertaining and we'll acted.

The writing in this film is messy, uneven, and somewhat bland.

Robbie is back to give you another review and this time on:Movie: The Kitchen (2019)Director: Andrea Berloff Writers: Ollie Masters (comic book series), Ming Doyle (comic book series) Stars: Melissa McCarthy, Tiffany Haddish, Elisabeth Moss LIKES:Setting Story telling Component The Drama and Twists Acting The Sound TrackDISLIKES: Predictable A Little Boring Longer Than It should have been Political overshadowing The Non-Centered AntagonistSUMMARY:For a movie set in a specific time and place, The Kitchen accomplishes the task of stepping back into the past.

All in all, "Kitchen" is entertaining to a fault with its three female leads going dark side and strutting around like the three sons of Corleone.

Engaging movie if you like organized crime movies .

it's a dumbed down version of Widows, albeit still enjoyable - if there's nothing better to watch.

Unexpected twists in store.

The 102 min length felt longer with the slow pacing and some dragged out and unnecessary scenes, especially towards the end.

But saddled with dull, lacklustre writing and direction, 'The Kitchen' is an overall letdown.

I really enjoyed it.

Her character is veryTarantino esq and Elizabeth Moss is one actress I'd pay to see in any movie Her character in The Kitchen is the most compelling and believable .

Otherwise everything else was long, boring, and most of the time not important to the plot.

The music score is dull.

Very funny moments that are unexpected as they come from the non-comedic actors.

Don't waste your time .

Entertaining and enjoyable .

The characters are uninteresting.

The scenes just dragged out so long and we're boring to watch.

What a waste of time!

She is stunning in this movie.

This is an enjoyable movie.

Though a couple of dialogues stand out and a romantic subplot just about makes the cut, the screenplay on the whole is mostly predictable and doesn't hook you.

If you want to watch a well made film about women becoming powerful, feared, and independent in the world of crime, then ditch Kitchen, and seek out the movie Widows, a superbly made and immensely entertaining film that was released in late-2018.
