    I’ve seen it and I’m sad to report that the film a fizzer. I’ve enjoyed and admired all of director Andrew Bujalski’s films but he really misses the mark with Support the Girls. Regina Hall does what she can but it’s a film that doesn’t really know what it wants to be or what it wants to say. The actors are stranded in underwritten, unfocused roles. The film is not terrible but it adds up to nothing.

    The only standout in the cast was Haley Lu Richardson who brought some real vitality to the film which is desperately needed, though her role was rather thankless.

    Regina Hall is a first rate comedian as the patchy Scary Movies have shown us. I would have nominated her for best supporting actress for the little seen People Places Things, a dramatic role and the romantic interest for Jemaine Clement of all people. Crazy as it sounds it works beautifully and I highly recommend any fans of Regina Hall to seek the film out – she is stellar in it.

    But sorry cross Support the Girls off your list of possibilities. Its not going to happen in any capacity.

    This may be the most “mainstream” Bujalski has been, but it is something pretty special. A great, great commentary on femininity/masculinity, racial politics and identities, and capitalism. Also, it’s a fun character study of Lisa, played by Hall (who is very good, by the way).

    Anyway, it may not make a splash in terms of awards, but, “sorry,” I wish it would.

    Now that it’s out, I have to say that I really liked the film! Regina Hall brings so much to her role, and I do think she might get some random critic nominations and maybe take that random SAG slot that scratches everyone’s heads. Haley Lu Richardson is uniformly excellent as well (proving that she has more chops than she appears to have), but I also thought Shayna Mchayle/Junglepussy as Danyelle is great as well.

    Get it Regina! Here’s hoping the other critics awards bodies will follow suit and make her happen.

    Sad.com. But an amazing feat for Regina Hall!

    I’m glad I caught this a few months ago so I could properly comment on Hall’s win yesterday. It’s a really great performance in a small movie that barely had a chance. I hope more people check it out now. Hall has always been wonderful (she’s also great in “The Hate U Give” this year) and this is a really nice win for her. I said in my review of “THUG” that Hall deserved bigger and better roles, both in drama and comedy. This role is one of those, it just is in a film that no one has seen. Luckily, the NYFCC win will boost its profile. I don’t know if she’s an awards contender because the film is so small, but it’s a great win nonetheless. The film itself is also very good and nearly teeters on being great. The supporting cast, in particular Haley Lu Richardson and Shayna McHayle, are great. I would watch a TV series about this story.
