weekend box office the kitchen

The weekend box office results are in, and things didn’t turn out so well for The Kitchen. The Elisabeth Moss, Melissa McCarthy, and Tiffany Haddish comic adaptation flopped, as the paltry summer movie season keeps on devouring non-franchise films whole. The only new title to do well over the weekend was the horror adaptation Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark, which came in second to reigning box office champ Hobbs and Shaw.

The Kitchen trailer

Halfway through the new period crime drama The Kitchen, the three leads stride confidently down a New York street towards the car driven by their muscle. They get to the car, and two of them get in; the third tries to open the remaining door, before snapping to the driver, “It’s locked.” The driver unlocks the door, letting the third lead in, and they drive off. There’s literally no reason for the door to be locked — it’s a weird stumble in a short scene that serves as a microcosm of the utterly nonsensical pacing, tone, and character motivations in The Kitchen. This film has a killer cast, and wastes them in a baffling, atonal mess.

Melissa McCarthy, Tiffany Haddish, and Elisabeth Moss seem like an odd combination for a ’70s mob drama, but The Kitchen might be the perfect melting pot for these two comedians and the Emmy-winning actress.

Anyone looking for the physical comedy we’ve come to associate with Melissa McCarthy or the over-the-top antics we often expect from Tiffany Haddish should look elsewhere, because this 1970s mob thriller teams them with Elisabeth Moss and trades jokes for straight-faced, no-nonsense drama. Check out the trailer below. Read More »

The Kitchen Movie

After starring in Girls Trip this past summer, Tiffany Haddish is on the rise to becoming quite the comedy star. She already has some promising movies coming up soon, such as the Thanksgiving comedy The Oath with Ike Barinholtz and John Cho and Night School with Kevin Hart and Taran Killam. Her next big project, however, will take her into new territory.

Tiffany Haddish is slated to star in The Kitchen, an adaptation of the Vertigo comic book of the same name that is set up at New Line Cinema and DC Entertainment. Now Melissa McCarthy is finalizing a deal to join her in the project, which is a gritty story about three Irish mob wives who take over the criminal business in Hell’s Kitchen after their husbands are captured by the FBI.
