To be fair, it’s more like Romy and Michele’s High School Reunion meets Drop Dead Gorgeous with a little Clueless mixed in courtesy of Alicia Silverstone who plays a beauty queen mean girl in the upcoming comedy. I just adore her.
Ass Backwards first premiered at this year’s Sundance Film Festival. The buddy flick stars June Diane Raphael (Burning Love) and Casey Wilson (Happy Endings). That’s right Penny Hearts lives 😉 The two play loveable losers Kate and Chloe who came dead last at a beauty pageant as kids. Their past humiliations at the pageant remain long forgotten until they receive an invitation to the pageant’s milestone anniversary celebration. With the unpleasant memories flooding back, Kate and Chloe decide to redeem themselves and take a roadtrip back to their hometown and win the elusive crown.
Based on the trailer, Ass Backwards promises to provide lots of silly fun. The clueless pair’s hijinks will have you in stitches. The telephone booth scene at the end of the clip is priceless. If you’re looking for some eye candy, that sexy Brian Geraghty channels some serious early Brad Pitt hotness to this Thelma and Louise duo. Check out the trailer below. Ass Backwards is available on iTunes on September 30 and hits theaters November 8.
