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
I really enjoyed this and was very surprised when I saw the negative reviews here. I worked in the service industry when I was younger and so the movie felt very real - it is hard to explain how close you get to others in the team in that sort of workplace, and this movie did an amazing job at presenting it. The acting was wonderful, and each character brought something interesting to the table. However, the pacing is slow, so will probably not please everybody. Recommend to anyone who's ever worked in the service industry before and is looking for a solid drama movie.
