I really wanted to enjoy this movie but it ended up being worse than I had ever expected. I don’t think I laughed once in this film. It’s so boring and the plot could not be more uninteresting. I love a lot of people involved in this movie but maybe writing movies isn’t really what they should be focusing on.
Oh, Ass Backwards. What happened? I wanted so much to like you. I like so many people that are in you. But you are so terrible. Why???
But yes, Ass Backwards is terrible and that was very disappointing. I think June Diane Raphael is legitimately, genuinely funny. I’m honestly not really familiar with Casey Wilson, but June being in it was enough to make me watch it. But. UGHHHH.
So June plays Kate and Casey Wilson play Chloe, two women who were once in a child beauty pageant together and lost. They get invited back to compete again in an anniversary show, so they take a road trip back to do it. It’s sort of like taking Romy and Michele’s High School Reunion and taking out 100% of the humor and charm. Ass Backwards has been done before and so much better. As much as I want to support June, this is absolutely not worth it. You’re much better off listening to her podcast with her husband, Paul Scheer, and Jason Mantzoukas called How Did This Get Made. Listen to that, don’t watch this!
