THE KITCHEN is a crime drama in which three women attempt to take the reigns of their jailed husbands' crime operations.

Language

There is infrequent use of very strong language ('c**t'), use of strong language ('f**k', 'motherf**ker'), as well as milder terms including 'damn', 'shit', 'ass', 'bitch', 'balls', 'screw', 'piss', 'God' and 'Christ'. There is also use of discriminatory language ('nigga'), but the uses are not endorsed.

Violence

Strong violence includes shootings which result in bloody aftermath detail. There are also scenes which imply that bodies are being cut up in a bathtub, but no strong detail is shown.

A scene of sexual threat shows a man grabbing a woman in an alleyway. He forces his hand underneath her dress and pushes her against a wall as he positions himself behind her. The woman is immediately rescued before the rape takes place.

Theme

There are scenes which imply that a woman is beaten by her husband. There is sight of her bruised face and references to her husband killing their baby as a result of the beatings. There is also a sequence in which the man punches his wife in the stomach.

There is a moderate sex scene, infrequent sex references, and an undetailed reference to a teacher overdosing with a needle in his arm. There are also references to drug pushers.
