Trailer For Raunchy Sundance Road Trip Comedy ‘Ass Backwards’

Written by on August 30, 2013 

While she’s been featured in shows like New Girl and had minor roles in Going the Distance, Year One and Forgetting Sarah Marshall, comedian June Diane Raphael finally got her chance to lead a feature in this year’s Ass Backwards. Premiering at Sundance, the Chris Nelson-directed road trip comedy finds the actress with Casey Wilson (The Guilt Trip, Julie & Julia), as they attempt to win a beauty pageant they lost when they were younger.

The first trailer has now arrived today ahead of a VOD and theatrical release this fall and it’s fairly funny. Our friend Ethan Anderton over at First Showing was a big fan, saying “this is Dumb & Dumber for the ladies, reminiscent of Romy & Michelle’s High School Reunion. Check out both the trailer and poster below for the film also starring Alicia Silverstone, Jon Cryer, Vincent D’Onofrio, Brian Geraghty, Bob Odenkirk, Paul Scheer and Sandy Martin.


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.

Ass Backwards hits VOD on September 30th and in theaters on November 8th.
