Regina Hall (Girls Trip) gives a terrific performance as Lisa, the empathic general manager of Double Whammies, a tacky Texas highway-side “sports bar with curves,” who has a can-do knack for solving everyone else’s problems, while avoiding dealing with her own. An incurable optimist and den mother, she nurtures and protects her girls fiercely—but over the course of one long, strange, trying day, her optimism is battered from every direction. Her number one rule for the girls, “NO DRAMA,” gets broken a lot. She clashes with the racist owner (James Le Gros) who enforces a “Rainbow Policy:” no more than one African-American woman per shift. Double Whammies sells a big, weird American fantasy, but what happens when reality pokes a bunch of holes in it? A comedy as generous as its leading lady, Support the Girls delivers laughs and plenty of heart. The wonderful ensemble cast includes Haley Lu Richardson (Columbus), Shayna McHayle, Dylan Gelula, AJ Michalka, Brooklyn Decker, Jana Kramer, John Elvis and Lea DeLaria (“Orange Is the New Black”). Written and directed by Andrew Bujalski (Computer Chess, Mutual Appreciation, Funny Ha Ha).
