Ass Backwards (2013)



Critic Consensus: June Diane Raphael and Casey Wilson are sharp comedic performers, but their co-written script gives them little to work with in this meandering farce.

Movie Info

Kate (June Diane Raphael) and Chloe (Casey Wilson) are two childhood best friends who met when they placed dead last in their hometown beauty pageant. Now they are all grown up and living in New York City, where Chloe works as a "girl in a box" at a nightclub and Kate is a CEO....of her own one-woman egg donor "corporation". Lost in delusion, they believe they are living large until an invitation to their hometown pageant arrives and their past comes back to haunt them. Join these two loveable losers as they take an ass backwards journey home to reclaim their crown, stopping off at a women's separatist commune, an amateur strip club competition, and meeting their favorite reality TV star along the way.

News & Interviews for Ass Backwards

Critic Reviews for Ass Backwards

All Critics (22) | Top Critics (11)

Ill-advised and amateurishly executed, Ass Backwards begins with a passably funny concept and runs it into the ground within 20 minutes.

April 27, 2020 | Full Review…

As with any kind of episodic or sketch comedy, some gags land more effectively than others, although you'll likely find a line or a beat or an image that makes you laugh from start to finish.

November 8, 2013 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

The road adventures they have along the way aren't funny, and once they reach the pageant, the comic payoff you're hoping for never materializes.

November 7, 2013 | Full Review…

Where movie comedy teams once required a "straight" member - or so-called normal characters - off which to bounce stupidity or silliness, Raphael and Wilson believe total immersion in thickheadedness and failure is riot enough.

November 7, 2013 | Full Review…

Raphael and Wilson are impressively committed to these misadventures, but it's a shame the movie is so cruel to the characters.

November 7, 2013 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Ass Backwards overcomes the obvious beats with clever, occasionally dark jokes that reveal the sharpness of its stars' writing.

November 7, 2013 | Rating: B | Full Review…
