Ass Backwards

ass-backwardsUS release date: November 8

Kate and Chloe are a super oblivious dimwitted white trash duo, in the vein of Dumb and Dumber‘s Harry and Lloyd (Dark-haired and blonde-haired, drive a van, Indian cuisine van instead of dog van) who have been the best of friends since their disastrous junior beauty pageant days, and they didn’t even know that it was disastrous. Kate is an egg donor, and Chloe is a night club live mannequin, whatever that is. They’re on a road trip heading to their hometown for an anniversary pageant, this year with their former competitor, former junior crown winner turned superstar, Laurel Kelly–played by Alicia Silverstone, as the honorary jury. But they got lost and ran out of money. So they spend a night on Chloe’s good-hearted (but equally stupid) dad’s new trailer house–by the way, Chloe’s dad is Vince D’Onofrio, crash their van the next morning and stranded on a bunch of fat feminist hags’ camp deep inside the wood.
So far, nice former A-list actor guest stars but almost no laugh.
Maybe they shouldn’t have to make this into hard comedy, because there’s actually potential good drama with a quite nice small message buried inside the story, especially in the third act of the movie.

My Rating: 4/10
