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

User Reviews

Another solid step for Richardson
1 September 2018 | by TheBigSickSee all my reviews

From The Edge of Seventeen, Split, to Columbus and this Support the Girls, Haley Lu Richardson is consistently shining in critically acclaimed features and constantly making progress in acting as a young rising star. In this movie, her role is totally different from her previous ones and she is simply unrecognizable. The performances of Regina Hall are also memorable. This is a hilarious comedy for female audiences.
