Being the general manager of a “boobs, booze and big-screen” establishment comes with even more challenges. That’s evident in this scene from Andrew Bujalski’s latest comedy, “Support the Girls,” starring Regina Hall as Lisa, who is spending the day trying to keep the peace as she manages the restaurant Double Whammies.

In this scene, Lisa has to deal with a customer who disparaged one of her waitresses. Mr. Bujalski narrates her struggle, and this scene gives a glimpse into the many crises the character juggles regularly.
Much of the movie takes place in the restaurant and the filmmakers were fortunate to shoot in a space that once housed a chain. By strange coincidence, the space was right next door to the restaurant Twin Peaks, an eatery similar to the one in the movie. Mr. Bujalski said it was intimidating to shoot next to Twin Peaks because it was difficult to get the details as perfect as they could.
