Critic Reviews for Ass Backwards

All Critics (18) | Top Critics (10) | Fresh (5) | Rotten (13)

As with any kind of episodic or sketch comedy, some gags land more effectively than others, although you'll likely find a line or a beat or an image that makes you laugh from start to finish.

Top Critic

The road adventures they have along the way aren't funny, and once they reach the pageant, the comic payoff you're hoping for never materializes.

New York Times
Top Critic

Where movie comedy teams once required a "straight" member - or so-called normal characters - off which to bounce stupidity or silliness, Raphael and Wilson believe total immersion in thickheadedness and failure is riot enough.

Los Angeles Times
Top Critic

Raphael and Wilson are impressively committed to these misadventures, but it's a shame the movie is so cruel to the characters.

New York Daily News
Top Critic

Ass Backwards overcomes the obvious beats with clever, occasionally dark jokes that reveal the sharpness of its stars' writing.

AV Club
Top Critic

Wilson and Raphael have been a comedy team for years, and they riff off each other expertly; too often, however, that's all they do.

Time Out New York
Top Critic

Chris Nelson's Ass Backwards certainly doesn't aspire to being anything more than passing entertainment. But sadly, this listless, flat, and exceptionally derivative movie doesn't even achieve that modest goal.

Quickflix

It's a little slapdash, a little flimsy, and doesn't seem to quite know what it wants to be at times, but it's good to see Raphael and Wilson get the chance to finally carry something for once.

Paste Magazine

Ass Backwards is a film that is all-at-once hilarious, intelligent, poignant and accessible.

Full Review… | October 17, 2013
CraveOnline

Wilson and Raphael do not hold back in their performances, fully committing to their roles and making Chloe and Kate both lovable and laughable.

Film School Rejects

This is a feature that opens and closes with shots of women urinating. No amount of high-beam comedic work is going save a picture that doesn't have much imagination to begin with.

Blu-ray.com

The pessimistic, passive-aggressive "Ass Backwards" may have been written by women, but one would never guess it judging by the evidence onscreen.

DustinPutman.com

Comedy can be fueled by desperation, but the characters are the ones who should be flailing wildly, not the writer-stars.

Full Review… | September 30, 2013
The Dissolve

A below-90-minute running time is not even a silver lining to a film that lives up to its name in more ways than one.
