'Ass Backwards': Alicia Silverstone is a beauty queen mean girl
No one wants to run into the mean kid from childhood as an adult. Especially if that mean kid is now a mean adult.
For best friends Kate (Burning Love’s June Diane Raphael) and Chloe (Happy Endings’ Casey Wilson), that person is Laurel. Played with a vicious coolness by Alicia Silverstone, Laurel is a former beauty queen who eviscerated a younger Kate and Chloe at pageants. “I love the way the two of you aren’t embarrassed about where you are in life,” she says to Kate and Chloe.
But, these two don’t seem easily dismayed and accept the opportunity to go back to their old pageant stomping grounds for another chance to compete at the anniversary show. And the girls hit the road with a killer soundtrack, some fabulous hats, and an optimism that we haven’t seen since Romy and Michele went to their high school reunion. Written by Wilson and Raphael, first trailer for Ass Backwards looks like silly fun. There’s even a pantless scene.
Ass Backwards is available on iTunes on Sept. 30 and hits theaters Nov. 8.
