Jessie and Angela, high school dropouts in love, are taking a week off to chill at the beach. Too bad their house got robbed, rent's due, they're about to get fired, and they're broke. Now they've gotta avoid eviction, stay out of jail and get to the beach, no matter what.
The soda machine in the restaurant has the brand names of sodas crossed out for obvious legal reasons, but it's still blatantly obvious what sodas they contain - the red and white Coca-Cola logo being quite obvious even with the name covered up. See more »
No, you wanna know what's stupid? Not being able to use the goddamn bathroom for two days because you're in *fucking* jail.
Hey, you didn't go yet?
No, I told you I couldn't.
I thought you went last night.
There's no privacy in that place. You know that?
Dude, that's not healthy.

A joyful, stupidly entertaining slice of life gem from the perspective of people the system has left behind.
Never Goin' Back is a raunchy, ridiculous, and wildly entertaining film from top to bottom. The pace is fleet, the characters are fun, and the writer/director was able to capture a lightning in a bottle slice of life (for stupid people) on par with the greats. Think 'Tangerine'. Getting it even closer to its comparison, the audience isn't begged to love these two dummies, but it's impossible not to. For all their hare brained ideas and bucket pooping, the inescapable fact is that these are two nearly homeless 16 year old girls with apparently no parents, no direction, no safety net. They've truly slipped through the cracks of the system and have to make or find everything they have; money, rent, furniture, and most importantly joy. I love this film.
