Andrea Berloff did a fantastic job writing and directing the Kitchen. There are no wasted scenes in this tightly edited film. Everything follows from one step to the next. The characters are very well defined, and evolve during the movie for obvious reasons.
The three actors — Melissa McCarthy, Tiffany Haddish, and Elisabeth Moss — headlining this movie were fantastic. Each totally sold their characters as fearful timid women to begin with, that became powerful confident women later…and in McCarthy’s case oscillated back and forth a few times, all with good reason.
The plot isn’t as predictable as the trailers might suggest. There’s a few enjoyable twists and turns I didn’t expect.
About The Peetimes: This movie is very well edited. There were lots of Peetime options early in the movie to select from, but were all very short. I recommend the 2nd Peetime. It’s near the middle of the movie and doesn’t have much dialog. The 3rd Peetime is for Emergencies only. There’s a big plot development, but it’s the only describable scene in the last 3rd of the movie to pick from.
There are no extra scenes during, or after, the end credits of The Kitchen. (What we mean by Anything Extra.)
Rated (R) for violence, language throughout and some sexual content
Genres: Action, Crime, Drama
Creator and developer of the RunPee app. When something doesn’t work right in the app it’s pretty much his fault. 🙂
Aspiring author. Would like to finish his “Zombie Revelations” trilogy if he could break away for working on RunPee and the cottage he’s building for RunPee Mom.
