Not sure why this got so much hate but I believe it was a serviceable crime movie.

I liked this movie because of the entertainment value. For this flick, one might say, "Only in the movies," simply because there were some elements about it that made it totally unrealistic! However, I think that when movies are like that sometimes (for example, this one), it makes it more exciting and/or captivating, versus becoming flat out stupida! I can genuinely say that I really liked the cast as well, because the acting was very good.

What's missing in this Kitchen is heat. A B-movie summer diversion at best, it's more a collection of genre tropes than an involving crime drama.

The Kitchen may prove to be a meaningful time-capsule document, but is far less successful as broad entertainment.

I felt resentful of my own feelings of gratitude while watching The Kitchen, a joyless and exhausting movie that squanders the talents of a dream trio: McCarthy, Tiffany Haddish, and Elisabeth Moss.
