Preview, Regina Hall tries to keep order in a (not) Hooters/Twisted Kilt in “Support the Girls”

She manages one of those “sports” bars whose real selling point is what the too-willing-to-be-objectified waitresses wear. And being a woman of optimism, faith and a sense of sisterhood, that’s not easy.

Regina Hall stars in “Support the Girls,” a comedy about looking beyond the bums and tight, tied-and-the waist low-cut T-shirts and doing the psychological math the employees do. And it’s about one long, bad day as the poorly-paid manager walking the tightrope between accepting certain strip club norms being shoved into a “mainstream” restaurant, trying to look out for somebody’s daughter, girlfriend or wife as the occasional (more than occasional) creep crosses the line in such an establishment.

Good to see Regina Hall in this Mother Superior role, riding herd on Brooklyn Decker, Haley Lu Richardson and assorted other “Coyote Ugly” candidates. With James Le Gross and comic Lea DeLaria along for the ride. August 24 at a theater near you.
