Goofs

At the 12:34 mark when Elisabeth Moss' character leaves the diner, an address number next door shows 6920. That shows that the shot was nowhere near Hell's Kitchen. (Actually it's 3rd avenue in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn.) See more »

Quotes

Kathy Brennan: Bunch of men that have forgotten what family means.

The kitchen - Melissa McCarthy should stick to comedy roles
24 September 2019 | by brankovranjkovicSee all my reviews

Violent crime drama.

Set in 1978, 3 wives of Irish mobsters take over after their husbands are imprisoned for armed robbery. After a weak start the movie progresses at a better pace although I couldn't help thinking Melissa McCarthy was badly cast and her rise to power was all too easy.

The movie made me think of 'Widows', which I didn't enjoy much either. The whole movie is pro extortion, murder, and corruption in the manner of Scorsese but not really made in a way that can be compared.

Probably not one to watch.
