Support the Girls Reviews

July 24, 2020
Support the Girls doesn't offend with its depiction of its subject matter. It commits a greater sin: it never acknowledges that these are issues at all.

[Regina Hall] does fine job of holding the film together but, elsewhere, the story seems to waste talents like Haley Lu Richardson.

Support the Girls falls flat, hampered by Lisa's stubborn helplessness. It is difficult to fully empathise with a character whose main obstacle is their own compassion...

Thankfully, we don't have bars like Double Whammies in this country, robbing this very American tale about underdressed waitresses of some of its relevance.

all too often the film pulls its punches in order to preserve its naturalistic style.

For all its heart and warmth, the desire to offer as many contrasting viewpoints as possible leads to a sense that the biggest elephant in the room isn't really being dealt with.

the film ends with an uninspired, sappy tone that feels more overwrought than liberating.

...a less-than-ambitious misfire that feels long even at 90 minutes.

Bujalksi wants a realism for each of his scenes that is, somewhat, attained but at the sacrifice of the plotting which feels messy, distanced and never fully gels into a coherent narrative.

A sometimes winning but fatally underwritten workplace comedy.

Maybe it wouldn't be so confusing if what passed as the film's "resolution" involved something more than the antics of bratty anarchy. It's impossible to support the girls on such shaky ground.

For the most part, a plotless story.
August 22, 2018
Support the Girls invites questions about why it exists and whether it offers an experience worth the price of admission and the investment of time.

It's a curiously muted affair, with the large, artificial setups and phony plot hooks of a conventional studio comedy petering out into the disappointments and anti-climaxes of a mopey indie drama.
