Support The Girls Review

Hey Lovelies, 

For many years, people knew Regina Hall as the loud, funny comedian from the Scary Movie franchise. This is changing though. With a fabulous turn in Girls Trip, the star has now created Support The Girls, out today on DVD and digitally. A feature that has been praised around the world and rightly so.

Directed and created by Andrew Bujaki, the man behind Funny Ha Ha, the film is a glorious telling of how the staff at a local sports bar decide to turn the tides on the world around them. Hall plays Lisa, the general manager of Double Whammies, who leads the waitresses and their daily duties.
With an optimistic attitude and outlook on life, Lisa soon finds that one-day changes that for her. Taking matters into her own hands, she protects her staff, who have long been forced to dress skimpily, in a battle against those around them.

Support The Girls takes audiences back. Back to a time, when there was a battle to be had. A time when cinema showed this and made sure everyone was listening. The women in the feature are like the fierce women that were in the 80s classics that still reign supreme today and Hall is the stand out one amongst them. Her fellow cast members are equally as brilliant though, with Hayley Lu Richardson, Dylan Gelula and Lea DeLaria owning the camera and storyline too.

Full of wit and humour, the film also mixes in devastation, with the tough home life Lisa is living with. As a bright and encouraging person, seeing this side of her shows that you never really know a person. A smart move on Bujaki’s part when it comes to showing that everyone is fighting something, even if they seem like they have it all together.

A film that is full of open and honest moments highlighting the tough world in which many women live in, Support The Girls is a modern movement that will make every viewer think. Hall and co are at their best throughout and Bujaki has made a clever feature that will stand the test of time.
