"Support the Girls, set in a Hooters-style bar, is an outstanding, quietly feminist comedy. Regina Hall leads a stellar cast in a startlingly wise movie about what many women face at work and at home. The result is a film that rings bitingly true, but respects its audience enough to let them connect the dots themselves. It’s funny and smart, but never wields its insights like a badge of honor. If anything, it’s an apology to its own characters for what women like them encounter all the time — one that sometimes bares some wincingly sharp teeth."
