Storyline

"Ass Backwards" is an irreverent female buddy comedy about two childhood best friends who are pushing the age of 30 and not quite where they thought they'd be in life. When they run into their former beauty pageant nemesis, they decide to go on a road trip back home to recapture the pageant crown which eluded them as children. On the road, they face some hard truths about themselves and each other as they encounter spring breakers, strip clubs, a women's militant group and their favorite reality star. This heightened comedic awakening leads us into an unforgettable third act finale that is the girls' homecoming and final reckoning with their past, present and future. Written by Maya Entertainment

Just God Awful
9 December 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

OK we get it. Your two idiots out on the road in this "road" picture. I like both ladies and of course more familiar with Casey as a former SNL alumni But....This film is nearly unwatchable. Dumb and Dumber...same premise but funny! Ass Backwards..Unfunny. And of course this is meant to be a comedy (I think). All in all I was lightly amused and do find both ladies likable in their pathetic squalor of loquacious losers. The big finale where they finally make it to the pageant is so poorly directed I was choking my own neck in disbelief. Perhaps in better hands Ass Backwards would have been rather comical but I do hope they don't plan a sequel to this mess as I will fondly pass.
