"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

Absolutely Horrible
9 August 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is (almost) exactly what I wrote on Facebook right after watching it, and can't think of anything more honest....parenthesis is where it has been edited somewhat.

Just watched Ass Backwards.

Save yourself the trouble and don't bother.

I thought it was going to be some sort of mix between Romy and Michelle's High School Reunion and Drop Dead Gorgeous - not even close.

No plot, no comedic was just two stupid bitches (edited out.) The best part happens in the first MINUTE, and past that it's just mind-numbing stupidity. *shakes head* I'm ashamed that I asked (my husband) to get it for us to watch.
