Chipper Casey Wilson & June Diane Raphael on 'Ass Backwards' Poster
Way back in January, plenty of laughs and joy arrived in the form of Ass Backwards, a wacky comedy from writers Casey Wilson ("Happy Endings") and June Diane Raphael ("Burning Love"), who also star in the film as a ditzy, clueless duo reminiscent of Dumb & Dumber and Romy & Michele's High School Reunion. Thankfully, Gravitas Ventures picked up the film for distribution this fall, and now the first poster has arrived featuring Wilson and Raphael all decked out in their best pageant dresses. Raphael says, "We took to the streets — and by the streets we mean a downtown LA quinceanera shop — to procure the best dresses I have ever seen." And the film itself is just as fun and ridiculous as those wild dresses. Look below!
Here's the first poster for Chris Nelson's Ass Backwards from Entertainment Weekly:
Ass Backwards is directed by Chris Nelson and written by Casey Wilson and June Diane Raphael, who also star in the film as two co-dependent best friends who fancy themselves as high powered stylish New York City gals - even though they share a water bed, sell their eggs for cash and think a table at Starbucks is a corner office. These loveable losers take a road trip back to their hometown to claim the beauty pageant crown that eluded them as children and discover that ignorance really is bliss. Alicia Silverstone, Vincent D'Onofrio, Jon Cryer, Brian Geraghty, Bob Odenkirk, Marcia Jean Kurtz and Paul Scheer also star in the film which Gravitas Ventures releases on VOD September 30th and theaters on November 8th. Cool?
