      KB B It's a pretty slow, shallow film; they used to call these B movies. I can't recommend it and would never watch it again. 91%.....Mmmmmm Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 03/13/24 Full Review Corey B I love when films show you don't need a big budget, or, even a decent budget to make a good movie. Think; Office Space with hard-working women who put up with far more than they should have to at work. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/23/23 Full Review Drew F this lovely, hilarious, and sweet little movie will make your heart melt. regina hall is an icon and haley lu and junglepu$$y are scene stealers. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 11/19/22 Full Review isla s First off, I see this is categorised as a comedy film - I fail to see where the real laugh out loud typ comedy is in this film, as it tackles some important themes, though there are ocassionally very slightly amusing moments at a stretch I suppose. More than that, I definitely respected the main character, bar manager Lisa (played very well by Regina Hall) who really seems to have her colleagues/co-workers backs, as it were. It's fair to say she's tested by what she faces on the day this film covers and themes covered include sexual assault and violence. This is very much an American film, culturally speaking, set in a 'sports bar with curves' (think a 'Hooters' type bar). I enjoyed seeing the way the girls open up to one another and how Lisa dealt with things. This is a part sobering, ocassionally amusing watch, which is memorable and stands out for one main reason - the way the main character, Lisa, defends and supports her employees and how they help her. It felt somehow refreshing and re-assuring. It isn't a film I'd recommend from a comedy point of view but generally, as a character based drama about female independence, I'd say yes, its worth seeing, so I'd recommend it in that way, yes. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review tony h This film offers great insight into the modern experience of life, its highlights and low-lives. It's a parable, really. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review wayne m Support the Girls is a beautifully quiet statement about feminsim. It's realistic, pragmatic and very human. Lisa is the manager of a sports bar in Texas named Double Whammies. It features skimpily dressed waitresses but she makes sure there are standards in place and treats the girls very well. It's like a family but like most families there is drama. Set over one day we go through the trials and tribulations of Lisa and her girls. She is under threat of firing from a petty owner and are enough little dramas to keep the day interesting. The film has a beautiful energy and as said it stakes its claim for feminism without hitting you over the head. Regina Hall is excellent as Lisa in a sea of good performances. A film to enjoy and admire in full. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      J. R. Jones Chicago Reader The story meanders near the end, but the anticlimax can't quite dispel the movie's warm eccentricity. Mar 24, 2020 Full Review Clarisse Loughrey Independent (UK) A remarkably compassionate portrait of American womanhood that inspires hope without denying reality. Rated: 4/5 Jul 8, 2019 Full Review Mark Kermode Kermode & Mayo's Film Review A kind of social realism...there's a real feeling of family, but it's also a workplace, where it's possible for people to be mistreated...stripped-down and unexpected. Jul 2, 2019 Full Review Keith Garlington Keith & the Movies The opening credits lets you know that the film is operating on a shoestring budget, but within five minutes I was already invested in this slice-of-life working class comedy. Rated: 4/5 Aug 25, 2022 Full Review M.N. Miller Ready Steady Cut Who knew Hollywood could come up with a slice of middle America that isn’t a retread storyline and that comes from a fresh perspective. Rated: 4/5 Aug 16, 2022 Full Review Brian Eggert Deep Focus Review Support the Girls is a considerate and understated indie comedy, capable of drawing out empathy for women, whose situations are less than ideal, by giving them an intimately human face. Rated: 3.5/4 Mar 11, 2022 Full Review Read all reviews
