"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
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 »
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 »
This movie could actually of been funny, if it had a different writer, actors and director. The moments when you want to laugh, never actually get there. The only feeling you have is of relief that the movie is finally over. The only saving grace throughout the whole movie is the few lines spoken by Jon Cryer.
The 1hr 21 Min's and 37 secs that this movie takes away from you, will make you realize what a complete waste of everyones time this was. Watch paint dry for that amount of time and i guarantee you will laugh more and have more emotion than this movie leaves you with.
My only feelings at the end of this movie, was thank god that's over, and what a complete waste of money that was, and no i'm not talking about the millions that this rubbish would of cost but the mere $2.50 I spent renting this.
