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

Trivia

Casey Wilson told New York Magazine in an interview that the only person to blame for the opening scene with her and June Diane Raphael peeing on the sidewalk with their bare butts showing is herself because she co-wrote it. "We wrote that the movie opens on a shot of our bare asses, and when we were on all fours in a van on the side of the road, with our makeup artist lovingly touching up our asses with ass makeup, I thought, 'Why did we write this?' And I needed an ass double, but we didn't have the budget!" See more »

Goofs

When Kate and Chloe urinate nearly one hour in (the flash-forward shown in the beginning), they never take their pants off. Despite this, the puddle does form, but in the next scene, the sidewalk is dry. See more »

It's funny
3 March 2021 | by fluffchopSee all my reviews

A bit like Romy & Michelle meets Dumb & Dumber. I didn't mind it. They could have made more of it but it is what it is. It's more scratching your head laughing than laugh out loud funny. If you enjoyed Happy Endings you should love this. I did.
