Excessively misandrous
30 August 2019 | by FrenchEddieFelsonSee all my reviews

A dynamic introduction in the form of a icebreaker with 3 women married with 3 pathetic Irish morons, in the neighborhood of Hell's Kitchen, on a music of It's Man's Man's Man's World. Right from the preliminaries, the movie deliberately rhymes with misandry to high heaven, without any subtlety. These 3 women who followed an orderly life, by tradition or obligation, will then take over from their 3 indelicate husbands being behind bars for 3 years.

The film is nice thanks to a neat photography, a nice casting (especially men's, paradoxically), an excellent atmosphere of the 70s. But the script is desperately weak and the dialogues are appallingly standardized. A male movie with three women behaving like men: is this the cinematographic originality of today?!?
