A DELIGHTFUL, SOMETIMES PROFANE, OFTEN PAINFULLY HONEST ENSEMBLE COMEDY. THINK EMPIRE RECORDS, BUT WITH LESS 90S JEANS AND A SMALLER SET. THE COMPARISON RINGS TRUE NOT JUST IN THE FACT THAT BOTH FILMS HAVE GREAT ENSEMBLES OF YOUNG, TALENTED FUTURE-STARS, BUT THAT BOTH FILMS FEATURE A SOUNDTRACK THAT ROCKS.
CLEVER AND FUN."

- OFF TO THE FILMS
"INEBRIATED INSANITY... THE KITCHEN FOLLOWS IN THE GRAND TRADITION OF ENSEMBLE COMEDIES. THE BEAUTY OF THE FILM'S CINEMATOGRAPHY AND ITS SCRIPT IS THAT ABSOLUTELY NONE OF IT TRIES TOO HARD. FILMING THE KITCHEN MAY HAVE BEEN A CHALLENGE FOR THE DIRECTOR AND HIS CAST, BUT IT'S CERTAINLY NO CHALLENGE TO WATCH."

Starring:Laura Prepon ("That 70's Show",; Karla, Orange is the New Black, (2 time Teen Choice Award nominee), Dreama Walker ("Don't Trust the B in Apt. 23", Compliance; Gran Torino), Bryan Greenberg ("How to Make it in America"; Friends With Benefits)
Jennifer (Laura Prepon) is turning 30 and her best friend, Stan (Matt Bush), is throwing her a party. But she is in no mood to celebrate. She just left her job, as well as her cheating boyfriend, Paul (Bryan Greenberg). Her cynical little sister Penny (Dreama Walker) is threatening to overshadow the whole affair with the most inappropriate party announcement. And she is pretty sure she's too old to still be living with her creepy roommate.
What starts out as a well-intentioned day of celebration quickly spirals into a most ill-fated disaster, from an ex-boyfriend who can't "get enough" to the bands dueling in the backyard and from disloyal friends showing their true colors to a manic-depressive party photographer who may have forgotten to take his meds.
In this hilarious ensemble comedy set entirely inside a kitchen, turning 30 has never looked this chaotic!
