      Tricia Olszewski TheWrap Heslov largely does an impressive job balancing the contestants' deeply disturbing stories with the near giddiness they express while getting dolled up. It's infectious. Aug 25, 2017 Full Review Katie Walsh Los Angeles Times A truly inspirational, emotional and profoundly moving film. Aug 24, 2017 Full Review Andrew Barker Variety An unusual beauty pageant offers an emotionally vivid look at the lives of female veterans. Aug 24, 2017 Full Review Glenn Garvin Reason Online [It is a] peculiar but ultimately endearing tale of women back from the front. Jun 1, 2018 Full Review Christopher Llewellyn Reed Hammer to Nail The film, just by putting its characters on screen for all to see, is [a] ... stirring tribute to their service. And that makes it well worth watching. Feb 25, 2018 Full Review Oktay Ege Kozak Paste Magazine Served Like a Girl manages to inform the audience about its important subject matter in an always engaging way while also telling an entertaining story with as many twists and turns as one might find in a fictionalized counterpart.

      Audience Member I laughed, I cried, and I got angry. This film may only been about the few women onscreen who has served in the military, but it's a story that resonates with nearly every woman who has ever served and understands the difficulties of coming back home. As a veteran myself, I am thankful for this story, to show that we served too, and women in the military are badass, willing to step up and get the job done and still want to feel pretty and be taken seriously. As a former homeless veteran, I appreciate that this film talks about the sad side of returning from service and what women often have to endure long after leaving. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/15/23 Full Review Audience Member This is a tough subject to tackle as a first-time director. This film tells a story woven from the experiences of several women competing for the title of Miss Veteran America. It's hard to capture all that goes into a pageant, and this film also explores the families these women have come from and have made, the service they have rendered to their country, the sacrifices they have made on the frontlines and in their own barracks, and the struggles and successes they have borne since coming home. The moments we witness with these women are extraordinary, powerful, heartwarming, and heartbreaking. From the first time we see all these women together at the pageant's finals in Las Vegas, we understand that the tiara is not the highest stakes for those involved. Love, acceptance, support, and recognition are all higher priorities for these women, and it is a final gratification to catch up with these women after the competition is over in a last series of the small moments and big triumphs that make up their lives. These women are absolutely remarkable and inspiring and so is this film. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/05/23 Full Review Audience Member I decided to watch this documentary because I love the Pat Benatar song "Dancing Through the Wreckage". The film follows a group of female veterans and their struggles. It is moving and insightful. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/09/23 Full Review Audience Member Moving documentary with ups and downs. Loved all the women in the film. Has a true message and we can not leave women veterans behind. You should watch it many times, and you will see things you didn't see before. I? only hope to make to Vegas and watch this in person. Thank you for your service ladies!!!! Keep doing what you are doing! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/01/23 Full Review Audience Member Phenomenal movie highlighting the woman behind the uniform! This is a must see film for everyone in America. It'll open your eyes, mind, and heart to what women in the military experience and is a testament to their resiliency and strength! SLAG will leave you feeling deeply thankful and appreciative for all our military women and their selfless service to this nation - all because they felt a calling to serve in a capacity far bigger than themselves. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/09/23 Full Review Audience Member Amazing, inspiring and real.. the best documentary I have ever seen. I laughed, cried and all the while found myself just wanting more . Congratulations to all Involved and for bringing awareness to a topic that needs more attention! So so proud! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/23/23 Full Review Read all reviews
