Lisa (Regina Hall) is the last person you'd expect to find in a highway-side “sports bar with curves,” but as general manager at Double Whammies, she's come to love the place and its customers. An incurable den mother, she nurtures and protects her girls fiercely, but over the course of one trying day, her optimism is battered from every direction. Double Whammies sells a big, weird American fantasy, but what happens when reality pokes a bunch of holes in it? The Wall Street Journal writes: “Andrew Bujalski’s remarkable movie — with its killer performance by Regina Hall — is not just about women. It’s about men being idiots. And no one is arguing ownership of that narrative…. Without taking any credit away from the rest of the cast, Ms. Hall owns the movie and her performance is a tour de force.”
