“A shrewdly observed, day-in-the-life-style portrait of a woman under pressure. It’s way too early to be thinking about awards season, but Regina Hall could be in line for some silverware.”
Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

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?

Regina Hall leads a star-studded ensemble in this working class comedy written and directed by “mumblecore” pioneer Andrew Bujalski (Computer Chess, Funny Ha Ha.)
