Storyline

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 Magnolia Pictures

Likable workplace comedy drama

Follows the workplace of a female manager at Hooters like bar restaurant played to perfection by Regina Hall. Great first half as you follow the training of new waitress. Second is more serious and more uneven. Between this and 'Columbus', Haily Lu Richardson is my new favorite young actress. If you think you would like this you almost certainly will
