Warner Bros.

Tiffany Haddish has suffered her first box office flop. Her new movie, The Kitchen performed so poorly at the box office that Warner Bros. pulled the flick from theaters after just two and a half weeks.

The Kitchen also starred Saturday Night Live veteran comedic actress Melissa McCarthy and Elizabeth Moss. The movie stars Haddish, McCarthy and Moss as the wives of New York gangsters in Hell's Kitchen in the 1970s. After their husbands are locked up in prison, the wives continue to operate their husbands' illegal enterprises.

According to Showbiz411, The Kitchen earned just $11 million in its two and a half weeks.

It's a major disappointment for Warner, as reviews were terrible and it had a very low 22 rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

Question: Why didn't you go to see Tiffany's new movie?

  • ShelbyMoore

    1. Didn't know about it; and
    2. Tiffany is without talent. Not as an actress and most definitely not as a comedian.

    Never heard of the movie and Tiffany just doesn't do it for me.

  • xxxgracious

    Well last year I paid to see Tiffany and Tika Sumpter and was not impressed. I hate making the same mistake twice. Sorry Tiff ?

  • KarmaBackAround

    It wasnt marketed very well... i think i saw the commercial for it once!

  • KarmaBackAround

    Ur profile pic made me HOLLLLLLER okay?! ??

  • Chaseboogie The Prince

    Unfortunately this movie has the same story line as Viola Davis's movie Widows. People probably felt like it has already been done. The commercials didn't look good either.

  • KarmaBackAround

    I got that vibe of WIDOWS as well

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    Widows is good....not too much action but the character development is everything...

  • Karen Brady

    No sex appeal in this movie. And the trailer on tv SUCKED. Especially Haddish who does not appear to act well.

  • Chaseboogie The Prince

    That's probably why 'The Kitchen' marketed their film right after. But it was tooooo soon after. Plus Viola is a beast when it comes to acting. Widows also had Michele Rodriguez who can also act.

  • Karen Brady

    I saw it too damn much.

  • Dowoop

    I didn't see it once.. ?

  • Chaseboogie The Prince

    Yeah, when Tiff plays serious roles, it doesn't suit her. She loses personality. Her face lights up and you are drawn in when she does comedy and smile. She has one of those faces that sorta loses it's appeal without a smile. I hope I'm explaining it right.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    I didn't go see the movie because I do not support Tiffany Haddish ..... she a hexanbeast .... I don't support hexanbeast Sandra ... same reason why I didn't see the Lion king ! ....

  • Dontgetdraggedputa??

    They barely promoted it!!!!!! Come on! Times are rough people are not pay $14 a pop for a ticket plus snacks unless theyre excited af about the movie not just whos in it. Do better

  • the guest

    I feel bad for Tiffany Haddish because she’s in over her head. Her management did not prepare her well to transition from comedy stage to motion pictures. People forget acting in movies actually takes some skill.

  • Renee26

    Haven't been to the movies all summer. I'll watch it on the firestick

  • KcoolMuziq

    I was suppose to attend an ULTRA private screening of "The Kitchen" last week. But opted instead to go to the premiere of Marlon Wayan's movie "Sextuplets". Although I already saw an unedited version earlier this year .

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    It was an amazing movie Brian Tyree Henry and Daniel Kaluuya did their thing too!!

  • thatonechick_

    I didn't even know she had a new movie out lmao

  • Bossy704

    Good choice!

  • Chaseboogie The Prince

    Yep, Daniel was very convincing as an evil, bad azz.

  • Chaseboogie The Prince

    Was Sextuplets good?

  • shalynneb1

    That the best way to watch.

  • Gamer????? Chick

    I followed my instincts...

  • Chaseboogie The Prince

    How does firestick work?

  • SaltineCrackers

    Did you like Sextuplets? I thought it was horrible.

  • Republican Dude

    It was booty sweat!

  • KcoolMuziq

    Absolutely LOVED it! Marlon worked VERY hard on it.

  • joel adams

    That movie was so dumb. I don’t know if it was the script or the two main leads who are comedians that couldn’t pull off a serious role.

  • Chaseboogie The Prince

    Okay, I'll check it out. Thanks.

  • joel adams

    I didn’t care for sextuplets until like the middle. It was ok

  • Gamer????? Chick
  • Renee26

    Same... Snore fest, didn't even finish it

  • SaltineCrackers

    White Hollywood puts out horrible movies unless they're remakes, which don't count on my book. Thank God for Netflix and Amazon Prime. Hell, even Redbox is better.

  • Renee26

    I have a couple of apps added onto it... Plug it in and watch. Don't have to pay for anything

  • KcoolMuziq

    I thought Marlon(whom was very emotional at the premiere) was BRILLIANT!

  • Chaseboogie The Prince

    You get it from like Bestby right? (I deliberately spelled it wrong.) But you just kinda hook it up to the tv or something right? I've been tempted to get firestick.

  • Bossy704

    I do not find Tiffany attractive and I don't relate to her persona. If it were Rihanna or Nicole Scherzinger things would be different.

  • Scromes1212

    Tiffany will be fine. I think she knew she was taking a chance with a more serious role. She is going to have to be particular about the serious roles she takes cause she is a comedian.

  • SaltineCrackers

    Ugh it was boring and embarrassing. I was watching like damn Netflix could've given Monique some more money, she would've put something out better than this.

  • SaltineCrackers

    Brilliant? In what way? Can you provide your definition of Brilliant, maybe I'm thinking of a different definition. Are you using Brilliant the way the British use the word?

  • KcoolMuziq

    From an artistic stand point. Knowing what Marlon put himself through what it takes to prepare and develop FIVE DIFFERENT characters in ONE MOVIE .

    YES BRILLIANT!

  • Ryan

    I don't wish bad on people but THANK GOD

    Let's keep the same energy for pocket-sized coon Kevin Hart!!

  • Renee26

    Yeah, I'm not a fan of real stupid goofy comedy like Marlon does. The Wayans bros hit and miss with me.

    I loved the many characters played by Martin and Eddie in Norbit and the Nutty Professor movies.... I was expecting something more along those lines.

  • Renee26

    Yes, or order them off Amazon site. Get the voice remote kind then go to youtube and find out how to load the apps. Search jail break firestick or something close to that ?

  • GAPeach

    Renee, that was Eddie in Norbit too. He's very good at playing multiple characters.

  • SaltineCrackers

    OK so you felt there were actually 5 different characters and that he worked hard to prepare for the movie, but people prepare for bad movies all the time. I'm asking you like, did you think it was funny? Did you find the story interesting?

    I'm just asking again because for the people who do like it, it sounds like most like it out of support for Marlon as opposed to it standing alone as a cleaver little comedy.

  • Chaseboogie The Prince

    Thanks!!!!

  • Renee26

    Yeah... ? I'm special

  • Renee26

    Giggles

  • Renee26

    I had to edit it to what I meant to say ?... Martin's characters from his show

  • Shenanigans1

    I wanted to give it a shot. But when I was unable to find it at one of my favorite cinemas I was a bit confused. Also it had very limited showings.

  • yvette46

    Should have released movie when Tiff-Tiff was HOT....

  • WhoKnew

    I saw TiffHash loud ass on Ellen last week and she stood out like a loud and painful sore thumb. Whoever is managing her is telling her being "loud and ghetto" as hell is working for her and she needs to be that way during interviews, red carpets etc. It ain't working and it's hard to watch.

  • KneeSee

    I saw little to no promotion for this movie.

  • Carrington

    Never heard of it... on another note, I think Melissa is hilarious.

  • WhoKnew

    Marlon actually has a movie on Netflix called Sextuplets where he plays all 6 characters. I was surfing last night and happened upon it and watched it. It was goofy like you said but there were a couple of times I was actually cracking up laughing.

  • WhoKnew

    I liked Sextuplets. It was goofy but as I was just saying to @renee26 there were a couple of times I was cracking up LOLing.

  • LeeSeeCee

    The promotion for this sucked anyway.. I'll wait until they release on video.

  • Bree

    For some reason I can not get with Tiffany Haddish. I don't think I have seen anything that she has ever been in. I can't get with the loud, ghetto, trash talking black female. Makes my wig itch and I don't wear a wig!

  • I Run New York

    I saw it. It was awful. Scenes were painfully boring and stupid. Acting was flat.

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    I saw the preview and the point of the movie wasn’t really staged and it didn’t make me want to go see it

  • Seldomseen

    What movie

  • Nik

    Daniel Kaluuya was so good in his role.

  • Chaseboogie The Prince

    Off to google hexanbeast...

  • Nik

    Same. It had potential but scenes were dragged out. I did like the werewolf scene.???

  • Soda

    Or buy it from Amazon. Yes, you hook it up to the tv, set up your account, then add apps or log on to the ones you subscribe to like Netflix, Hulu, HBO, etc.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    It's a Jezebel Its their knew nickname that I gave .... in short a covert Narc!

  • Chaseboogie The Prince

    Okay, thanks.

  • 2gr8ful

    Too much was shown in the preview after watching it I was good. Next.. ??

  • Chaseboogie The Prince

    What about regular tv shows? Same thing, just hook it up to the tv? Is it like a dvr type thing or no?

  • Nik

    Yep, Jezebel: controlling, manipulative, conniving, liar liar pants on fire, delusional, and too dayum self-important.

  • Renee26

    Yes, that's what we're talking about. It wasn't good to us ?

  • Soda

    There are some services that offer local tv but they usually charge a monthly fee. Some developers have the option in what is called a build, which has different categories, such as sports, music, exercise, adult entertainment, but it isn't always reliable.

  • Chaseboogie The Prince

    Got it! Thanks!!!

  • Soda

    ?

  • Wreckognize Game

    Thank you for explaining my feelings about the movie. The other part is that I’m over Tiffany and Melissa too if she is playing that same fat comedic role.

  • bb1812

    I had seen too much of Elizabeth Moss' face due to binge watching all 3 seasons of The Handmaid's Tale recently. Lol. Tbh it just didn't appeal me, tho I like all 3 ladies.

  • ClaireHuxtable

    That sounds a lot like that movie Viola Davis was in. The husbands were crooks and the wives had to take over.
    Can't think of the name...it was out last year...

  • Junkanoo

    Well done movie goers now people need to keep the same disinterest for the Jennfer Lopez movie with Cardi B coming in September

  • Phillybruh

    This was oscar bait for Mellissa McCarthy more so than it was a Tiffany Haddish Movie.

  • hottlanta

    Lets see Tiffany movie flopped while Steve over in africa claiming the ancestors he said he didnt wanna talk about. Monique tried to tell ya. Tiffany let folks tell her u bigger than just being in all black films u need to cross over 2 a wider audience. She came in trying to cross over saying she had a crush on brad Pitt n he still hasnt responded.

  • Li-Wright

    Hmmm....why is this Tiffany's movie and not Melissa's? I saw it. Not worth the money.

  • Li-Wright

    There are a bunch of all women movies coming out this year and none of them are hit movies. That ride with women has stopped. The all-female starring movie is over, and maybe the women should team with the male stars....just saying.
    The kitchen was poorly written. Period.

  • Li-Wright

    Widows. I saw that too, and didn't like it.

  • Li-Wright

    It was based on a graphic comic book the Kitchen, but the movie didn't translate well. None of the actors did anything that warranted an award. The script was just poorly written. And I didn't believe Tiffany's storyline.

  • Just Me

    I did not go see it “Cause ion like ha!”???

  • Li-Wright

    She's still hot. She has a Netflix series.

  • Li-Wright

    ^^ THIS.

  • Li-Wright

    ^^ WHAT???^^

  • Let them eat cake

    yea its weird they do that nowadays. show the whole movie in the previews...

  • Miss Lady

    I had actually planned to see the movie but they started advertising it months before it came out so when it did, hell I felt like I saw it already.

  • ClaireHuxtable

    Yep that was it. I gave it a solid B, but didn't recommend anyone go see it.

  • Kanyade

    I typically see very few features at the theater; I will rent/Netflix this one, though.

  • Junkanoo

    Ghost Busters the all womens version was a bust so was that female Ocean 11 but their still churning them out. Hollywood gets caught up in trends it's the rise of the women these days. If movies are poorly written release them to DVD instead of trying to dupe the public into spending hard earned money on some bullcrap.

  • morenYAHdelsur

    People don’t flock to the theatre like they used to. With the exception of Marvel movies, which already have strong bases.

  • Gloria

    I have invested money and time into my personal home theater. Unless its a "must see right away" type of movie, I'm likely going to wait to watch it in my own theater. Plus, I'm not a fan of any of the women in the movie like that.

  • T Willis

    For some reason when Hollywood green lights a predominately minority cast, they hire the worse writers to write the script. I saw the preview months ago and it seemed interesting. I like Elizabeth Moss, Melissa M, and I do want to support Tiff, but I honestly forgot it came it out

  • Scorpio

    I actually saw this movie last weekend and honestly it wasn't bad. For a first performance non comedy Haddish I'd give a grade of B. I preferred her in this role over her comedic roles.That's too bad, because I think people would have like it had they gone and seen it, especially with the non suspected twist at the end.

  • Miss Thang

    Her acting in it was good.

  • Reenaface

    People are tired of the same script. The movie sounds like a follow up to the movie Widows. And Melissa with that bad force NY accent. I wonder how Hustlers will fare?. I'll wait until I can rent The Kitchen for $1.99 off Google play movies.

  • Truth ???

    I didnt even hear about this movie.

  • Reenaface

    She tried it with Leo and he curbed her too. She said that she wanted him to have sex with her in his 'What's eating Gilbert Grape" character. Um, Gilbert was a mentally challenged kid in that movie.

  • Reenaface

    I still can't believe I paid to see Ghostbusters, but there was nothing else out that was interesting. I made a mental note to skip Oceans 11.

  • Reenaface

    I didn't like how Chris from " Get Out" was acting so sinister just going around shooting folks to death.

  • Sokka

    Im just hearing about this movie seriously I've seen previews to power , shameless, and even the flash new seasons I blame Warner Bros themselves for not promoting this movie properly.

  • MsPam

    Some people are comparing it to the Klumps. ?????

  • ClaireHuxtable

    I was wondering why she took so long to k1ll her lowdown husband.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    Studios don't do a good job of transitioning talent. Tiffany, comedian. Melissa, comedian. You cast comedians in the lead roles of a thriller? I knew it would flop.

    Night School, starring with Kevin Hart, was also a flop. She also bombed on New Years in Miami.

  • Junkanoo

    That is annoying when you go to the theather expecting some entertainment pay your money and the movie doesn't hold your attention. After ten fifteen minutes if it looks lame I walk across hall into another movie but that doesn't always pan out.

  • SaltineCrackers

    ? lies! At least Eddie Murphy made himself look like the different characters. I don't want to be mean, but I think this movie is 20yrs after its time. Even his show Marlon was terrible. That corny funny doesn't work anymore.

  • Junkanoo

    With a good script it may of feared better I thought the cast was a motley crew lazy casting did they even have any chemistry rehashing films we've already seen is getting old. The Female version of Oceans 11 was just tired they could of cooked up an original idea for a all female heist film. I havent even watched the ones with the men they don't look that interesting

  • Bonita

    "Question: Why didn't you go to see Tiffany's new movie?"
    The same reason I didn't go see Girls Trip, and have yet to watch it on Kodi. Tiffany Haddish is a loud, over the top cornball, who is not funny to me.

  • Real Proper

    They didn’t promote this one at all

  • Raquelle Dellaghetto

    What the hell is Offred doing in this movie?

  • I Run New York

    Widows was way better.

  • Society has changed

    The preview looked like a flop! Plus, last time I went to the movies that crap cost $100! Thanks, but no thanks! I’ll wait....

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    Not funny AT ALL!

  • Society has changed

    Exactly

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    I KNOW thats right!

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    ??

  • Reenaface

    The men's version was okay, Bernie Mac (RIP) made it more funnier. I know Steve Harvey thought that the role should have went to him instead of Bernie, this where their beef began, but they made the right choice with Bernie.

  • Reenaface

    I couldn't believe her husband had a whole ass family on the side and that his ass was really alive .?

  • I Run New York

    Looks like trash. I won't be checking for it.

  • AveIvy

    I knew this would happen with this movie. Her career is a wrap! She fucked up by doing that Hollywood Reporter interview announcing she secretly video tapes every audition. Bitch what??? That's the last thing scandalous nasty ass Hollyweird wants to hear. It was at that moment, I knew her phone would stop ringing. It's either Tyler Perry movies or back to the comedy club circuit. Bye Tiff!

  • Jimmy L. Marsh

    I'm sure she's a whole lot more funny and beautiful in any Of you heifers . Oh by the way jealousy is a ugly trait but some of wear it so well.

  • hottlanta

    Naw she didnt. Brad hasnt claimed robin givens n they actually dated what makes u think he is gonna respond to you. I bet somebody told frankie beverly n maze to change their music so they could be bigger n cross over for universal appeal. They said fyck that. They havent made a new album in 70 years got the same sound n stlll kicking.

  • NaeNae2015

    Why does it have to be jealousy? I can give you an entire list of talented amazing actresses including but not limited to:

    Viola Davis.
    Kerry Washington.
    Taraji P. Henson.
    Angela Bassett.
    Regina King.

    Tiffany Haddish is not on that list because I don't think she's a good actress, not because of jealousy.

  • Junkanoo

    I think Berine is funnier than Steve Harvey and more likeable

  • rayne215

    its 2 other well known actresses in this movie but its Tiffany that flopped? ok

  • MistaO

    These fantasy "I am female hear me roar" movies are s hit. Nobody, not even flame throwing feminist lesbians buy this s hit.

    Yea, three washed up broads gonna be calling shots, s hits laughable...???

    Hollywood is becoming one big joke with this feminist bs..

  • dazja

    Last time I checked Melissa McCarthy is a two time Oscar nominee and the bigger star, if anyone should be blamed for this "flopping" it would be her, not Tiffany Haddish. Isn't this a black blog, why the hate for the black woman?

  • rasan8250

    I mean it should have worked. The graphic novel was real good. Only thing is I could not figure out which Character Tiffany was gonna play. Studios don't promote things like they use to.

  • The Chosen 1.

    You took the words out my mouth.

  • The Chosen 1.

    Just like Kevin Hart, they ARE NOT funny.

  • lovelygamour

    tiffany i am going to write to you like i did leslie jones. dont let them make this your movie. this movie belonged firstly to melissa McCartney. you and elisabeth moss was just rounding out the cast.

    the studio didnt know how to promote the movie. it would be a great second run movie or tv movie. i think they will make their money back but it will be slower then bridesmaids and girls trip.

  • lovelygamour

    even the trailer didnt really say what the movie was about.

  • lovelygamour

    I think melissa flopped worst. she needed an acting and voice coach. she is just too jolly. she shouldve went method acting for this.

  • lovelygamour

    i think jennifer lopez will buy a lot of tickets other then that it will flop.

  • lovelygamour

    ghostbusters couldve worked but it was too *saturday night live*.

  • lovelygamour

    i thought they was beefing over kings of comedy. steve harvey is a smart man. he had to have known bernie was a better actor. steve couldnt pull off the tone of the movie. even al pacino had trouble keeping that vibe in his ocean movie. i look at steve a whole different way now.

  • lovelygamour

    spoiler alert.

  • Eileen

    Her voice annoys me

  • LoveChild

    I can’t stand her pop eyed loud black women act I don’t even watch her movies for free on Amazon!! She is a one trick pony the quickly upset black woman how boring.

  • leapyearpisces

    Some of yalll may come for me over this comment, but imma state a fact that is not being said: The reason this movie failed is because none of the the lead actresses are considered attractive, or sexy. That's what it all boils down to. I GUARANTEE that if the leads were Beyoncé, Zendaya, and J-Lo, this movie would have been a number 1 hit! Sex appeal, and noteriety play a BIG part in movies like this.
    People go see movies for fantasy, and seeing 3 attractive and notable's actresses would have fufilled this fantasy, therefore making this movie a hit.
    That is why even though Hustlers look like a straight to DVD movie, it's gonna do good at the box office because of the cast (imma wait until it hits Netflix though :-)).
    Chile, yall (warner brothers), know we Americans are shallow as FUKC and knew DAMN well didn't NOBODY want to see them 3 basic broads running around town playing gangsta- STOP PLAYING. Being male-identified ONLY works for pretty / beautiful, sexually attractive women.

  • Rent em Spoons ?????????

    To be honest I didn’t know the movie was out , it looked interesting, but nothing to rush to the movies for. That’s crazy it only pulled in less than 20 million.

  • Rent em Spoons ?????????

    Good to see her showing some range outside of the typical roles for her.

  • Rent em Spoons ?????????

    Indeed , this looks like an interesting movie just not a blockbuster. This is why more and more are turning to outlets like Amazon and Netflix .

  • Rent em Spoons ?????????

    Right , this shouldn’t do anything to get Career, many top stars have duds . If anything it’s more concerning to Melissa

  • Bonita

    ?

  • Bonita

    Me too.

  • Bonita

    Black folks always wanna call each other jealous when there's a difference of opinion as it relates to another Black person. LOL

  • Harley

    Yep so true

  • Harley

    Self hating bloggers

  • Bonita

    Girl, let Jimmy L. Marsh tell it, we're some jealous heifers for not thinking she is. lol

  • Jimmy L. Marsh

    The truth of the matter is she is a good actress along with the list that you just listed. For whatever reason you don't like her you should keep to yourself, no one really cares what you think about Tiffany. Maybe u should focus on the inconsistencies in your own life and what you're missing in your fractured
    existence that would cause you to wanna have negative thoughts and or words about other people that u don't even know. Remember the bible reads, "as a person think's in their heart, so they are". In other words whatever negativity or positivity that you have about others it is the same that you think about yourself

  • Reina1718

    Ppl jus over her... she been so loud that a non funny role doesn’t look good ????? My opinion

  • MrsSpice1

    Im surprised it actually looked kind of good!! I can see that Tiffany is trying to expand her acting and thats cool, I honestly do not go to nasty azz movie theaters anymore. Either im hitting up the drive in or ill wait until it comes on demand!!! I wonder if oldazz wanna be a stripper jlo movie the hustlers will do any better? ?

  • MrsSpice1

    Lol..smh i still havent seen Girls trip either ..another bs movie im not pressed to still see is think like a man 1 or 2...its just some movies i can pass on for life!! If i see it itll probably be by accident ?!!

  • Love Luv

    Tiffany is the female version of Adam Sandler, and the missing height footage of Kevin Hart. So no, I’m not interested.

    https://media2.giphy.com/media/13l7w7N4Vr1dw4/giphy.gif

  • Black Dynomiiiite!!!

    Facts! I totally agree with you, even though I personally thought having basic looking made it more believable. Especially Melissa's character. I still want to see it, but I was never planning on going to the theaters. I will catch it on the firestick.

  • Mama Dee’s Wig Maker

    The promotion for this film was weak. They didn't push it hard enough.

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    He's so fine to me...

  • TransMichelle
  • T Willis

    Naw, it boils down to the fact that none of the actresses had large enough fanbases to receive top billing. They needed to add an A-list celebrity to the film. Like Angelina Jolie or Charlize Theron.

  • Reenaface

    Oops... lol!

  • T Willis

    I barely remember that quote. Tiffany was never going to have a long lasting career in Hollywood. Too many blacks are intimidated by her. That loud, brash, stereotypical, no-nonsense, only works for the unattractive/obese blacks. Tiffany is attractive, but she’s loud mouthed, and there is no bigger threat than an attractive slender black woman with a mouth on her. The archetype that they’re trying to fit Tiffany into just wont work.

  • Reenaface

    Steve was going around trying to talk producers out of hiring Bernie for Oceans 10? that along with the other underhanded stuff he was doing behind the scenes.

  • Reenaface

    Oh yeah.... I forgot that half the cast was alumni SNL.

  • T Willis

    It took me a long time to watch Girls Trip, and it’s actually pretty good. Tiffany wasn’t as overbearing as I thought she would be. I think she’s a good comedic actress. Reminds me a lot of Jada Pinkett in the early 90s.

  • Reenaface

    I'm predicting a flop as well.

  • Reenaface

    He's the only Kings of Comedy person that I didn't go to see live. I've seen the others, Harvey, Ced, DL, before.

  • Reenaface

    Yes she did, it was in the blogs about her propositioning men in Hollywood for sex.

  • T Willis

    None of those actresses have been given the opportunities that Tiffany has. Tiffany is definitely more mainstream, a lot younger, a lot more sass, and she’s attractive. The closest on the list would be Taraji, and she’s been regulated to hood pictures. I do think there’s an element of jealousy. Not a whole lot, but there’s definitely a little bit of jealousy - mainly because of the opportunities that she’s being given. I mean, the girl has a sitcom that’s doing well, put out 2-3 films in one year, and didn’t she host an awards show with Kevin Hart? That’s a major feat for a black woman in Hollywood, so, yeah, there’s definitely jealousy.

  • T Willis

    Melissa M has many flops under her belt too. The flick she did with Susan S flopped. The buddy cop comedy that she did with the yt girl (who’s name I can’t think of lol) flopped, and now this. This isn’t Tiffany’s loss, it’s Melissa’s.

  • R in NYC

    I'll just wait to see it for free.

  • T Willis

    Because Tiffany’s PR is worse - mainly due to vocal black people. Melissa M has had way more flops than Tiffany, and she’s the bigger star, but notice that after every movie bomb, the yt blogs weren’t dragging Melissa. Nobody probably remembers all of Melissa’s flops, but I bet every yt/black/Asian can name Tiffany’s. Yt ppl are already going to drag us when we don’t perform well, there’s no reason to add on to it. The negative publicity affects not only Tiffany, but future black actresses that come after her. They’ll use the negative media exposure for why they shouldn’t hire another black actress... meanwhile, Melissa has just as many (if not more) flops but she doesn’t have the negative publicity. I think folks need to chill. If you don’t like Tiffany then keep it to yourself lol. Yt ppl pick up on the negative things we say about our artists and use it as a reason to not hire us. Just give the girl a chance.

    It didn't look interesting to me.

  • Logan Roberts

    Who thought Tiffany could open a weekend movie without additional celebrities anyway?

  • NaeNae2015

    This list is partial....and I can only speak about myself when I say there is no jealousy over here when I think about Tiffany Haddish. She's just not my cup of tea and that is okay. I'm sure you don't love every actress (or actor) out there. Does that mean you're jealous of them?

  • Allergic2dumbstuff

    I couldn't figure out if this movie was a crime-drama or a comedy. I couldn't see Melissa nor Tiffany pulling off a crime-drama, imo these A list (?) comedians can barely handle ensemble comedies.

  • MsVAllDay

    I didn't even know this movie was out.

  • Junkanoo

    3 out of 4 you did good . I never think of going to see stand up comedy routines I usually watch them at home. Being in a space with a bunch of other people laughing out loud wouldn't work for me.

    Nobody really cares about this self-important soliloquy you've unleashed as we're all ADULTS and can proceed to express whatever opinion about anyone freely.

  • ?Patty Kakes?

    Don't put it all on her. Melissa played a big part in that too lol

  • Daryl Campbell

    Hollywood is out of creative ideas, there're releasing products to see what catches.

  • Bonita

    But T. Willis, are you saying that we commentors that aren't feeling Tiffany Haddish are jealous of her, or her colleagues? Because Jimmy L. Marsh is accusing us commentors who have a differing opinion from his as being jealous. And if I were the jealous type, in which I could never be, I'm just trying to figure out how, when we're not even in the same profession. Somebody make it make sense.

  • T Willis

    Hi Bonita ?....
    I think it’s subconscious, but, yes...

  • onelove

    should have went to netflix would have made a killing

  • NaeNae2015

    I GUESS I understand the Tiffany Haddish obsession some people have. I LOVE Idris Elba and I do have the urge to want shank people who don't agree with me on that.......

  • Bonita

    Child bye! LOL Y'all sound ridiculous.

  • LotusFlowerBombOne

    They just did that cause a lot of yt people spoke out and were outraged about it. They said the movie was immoral... You see what they gave it on rotten tomato's. I'm a watch it on the firestick eventually if it's still there.

  • LotusFlowerBombOne

    She just dropped a comedy show on Netflix. I don't think I even cracked a smile. Not funny...

  • LotusFlowerBombOne

    She's right tho Tiffany isn't funny.

  • dazja

    Melissa McCarthy is too, why just call out Tiffany?

  • Jamillah Zeigler

    I did see the movie, it was rather good for a girls night but then again we will go to any movie for a break and a chance to hangout.

  • Jamillah Zeigler

    So true

  • Guest©

    I told a coworker that Kevin was wack to me and he tried to shame me. I politely reminded him that comedy (along with many other things) is subjective. He then asked what subjective meant. After that question, I see why Kevin is great to him, lol.

  • LoveChild

    I can’t stand to watch her. To me, her character ruined Girls Trip. The psychotic quick to anger hood chick. That is a very damaging stereotype for black women.

  • Soon2BWife

    Widows was already done.

  • LotusFlowerBombOne

    I haven't seen it but I believe you.

  • LoveChild

    Exactly everybody here is grown with their own independent thought

  • LoveChild

    If you do decide to watch it you will cringe. Her character is over the top breaking bottles wanting to fight in restaurants getting loud acting crazy.

    Nobody really wants to see that.

  • Bonita

    First off, who is this post about? Last I read, Melissa McCarthy wasn't in the title of this post. Second, if I just responded that I didn't watch it, how the heck would I know how Melissa McCarthy acted in the movie? Third, I don't know who a Melissa McCarthy even is. I couldn't tell you what other movies she's starred in. And lastly, I don't come on Black gossip sites to read and discuss Anglo Saxons. If I cared to discuss them, I'd go to TMZ or The Blast, or some isht. A lot of y'all don't think before y'all comment within someone's thread. Make it make sense.

    Don't care for Tiffany as a entertainer but i really suspect she's a nice, down to earth person. Having said that, i wish her the best in her endeavors.
    She had to get her feet wet... hopefully we can see some growth somewhere down the line.

  • Bonita

    lol

  • Bonita

    I used to love me some him back when The Wire came out. I don't find him as attractive anymore as he was back then.

  • The Chosen 1.

    LMFAO. That was a blow. Thoughtful talk, they are not funny at all.

  • AveIvy

    Intimidated? I don't see this and especially in Hollywood. More like annoyed. What intimidates people in Hollywood is brains and assertiveness, that's what they fear but someone who is lightly attractive, very ghetto and loud is nothing new.

  • DeNice82

    Tiffany Haddish should not have pulled out a glad lock bag full of chicken wings at the Met Gala...shidd,, embarrassing good black folk

  • Antuan Wright

    I like how the blame is all on Tiffany. That's some bullshit. So the other 2 actresses have nothing to do with the flop? Blame it on the black guy as Hollywood will do and society will eat the shit up

  • Jade

    I loved it

  • Kimocha

    I'm not a Tiffany fan... But it was more ab the previews to the movie... They just didn't grab my interest... (Shrugs)

  • Reenaface

    Believe me it's a struggle sometimes to be in public amongst other people. But, I got to see Charlie Murphy before he passed so that turned out okay.

  • LaTonya Tribitt

    I thought the movie was good. But if you call it a flop, all 3 ladies are responsible.

  • Lovely517

    Ctfu! I just went to see the lion king yesterday. Ordered a flimsy hotdog and a slurpy. Cost me $17. Highway robbery!

  • Nik

    When I saw him on Jimmy Kimmel I fell in love. He has such a great personality.

  • LoveChild

    Was that some crazy shit or what?? We said she must’ve been high when she did that. Acting like a goofy mammy praising the white female eating fried chicken like white people aren’t all up in Popeyes 24/7.

  • DeNice82

    Mammy praising and buck dancing for butter biscuits ??...

  • LoveChild

    And look at her last two movies they bombed. Night school and this new one. The backbone of the black community, the black woman, isn't interested in supporting most mammy stereotypes anymore.

  • LoveChild

    I see Tiffany as a very damaged individual. She had a toxic background in the foster care system so you know she went through some deep shit. Which is why she’s high as hell nowadays.

  • Surprise2017

    I saw it and it was slow going but I ended up loving it once I figured out what the hell was going on. I love Melissa McCarthy anyway. However, it was a nice change to see Tiffany not be so silly. I wouldn't think it would be a flop either.
