Lisa 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?Written by
downbeat slice-of-life drama doesn't have much point to it.
This movie starts pretty well as a mildly comedic indie movie about Hooters-style restaurant manager Regina Hall (excellent) dealing with her job and her messy personal life. But in spite of bright spots, like Haley Lu Richardson as a sweet, somewhat dim waitress seemingly born for the job, the movie becomes increasingly dour.
The closest thing to a message this movie has is, "good managers are rare and necessary," but really, it just goes on and on without getting anywhere.
