Synopsis: Lisa Conroy 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.
“Bujalski has an incredible ability to take situations that would be sitcomish in someone else’s hands and make them feel genuine and character-driven” – Brian Tallerico, RogerEbert.com
“It’s a biting commentary on American labor and capitalism in the form of a mainstream crowd pleaser.” – John Fink, The Film Stage
