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

Why?
29 August 2018 | by crosbyp12003See all my reviews

I love Regina Hall but what was she thinking.....this needed to be a lifetime movie. Everybody has bad days regardless of where they work. Didn't get it. I gave it 4 stars because of Regina. You do these type of movies when you're trying to make it. Mediocre
