This is a clumsy, oddly patronising and disappointing project. Comparisons to last year's mostly superb Widows are damning.

McCarthy, Haddish, Moss - Oh, what a movie The Kitchen could have been. But oh what an unholy disaster it is. An early contender for worst of the year.

The Kitchen offers nothing redeeming to cling close to our chests, nothing warming nor interesting nor worth investing in.

An offense against feminism, narrative logic and Fleetwood Mac, "The Kitchen" is a terrible, witless mess.

The plot of "The Kitchen" twists and buckles but it never fully breathes.

It wreaks of studio interference, a film that feels pulled apart and then haphazardly restitched in an editing suite by a committee of people desperate to get it released before swiftly moving on and all agreeing to never speak of it ever again.

The women are game, but there's not enough heat in "The Kitchen."
