"Lisa (Regina Hall) is the general manager at Double Whammies, a dodgy sports bar where the waitresses must dress in revealing clothing, and deal with the leering clientele. Despite the circumstances, Lisa loves her staff and the customers and has an infectious optimism. She is also fiercely protective of her employees, helping them deal with absent babysitters, money problems and abusive boyfriends. The film takes in one particularly awful day that cruelly tests Lisa’s optimism." (Sydney Film Festival)Hide
