After a head injury alters her outlook on life, the uptight Director of Human Resources for a global company throws standard corporate practices out the window and inspires the business to strive for new ambitions and profits.
"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
I'm so excited that "Ass Backwards" is finally out on VOD! I've been telling my "pageant obsessed" roommate about it for the past few weeks so I can't wait to finally get to watch it with her. The movie shows the struggles two best friends face trying to get to compete in a beauty pageant. Being a person knowing nothing about pageants, I found the movie absolutely hilarious, so I'm sure anyone with a background in pageants will find it equally, if not more hilarious. Though the two best friends are not the greatest pageant girls, I found their determination to compete and win, as well as support each other (even though they competed against each other) very admirable.
