Critic Reviews for Ass Backwards

All Critics (22) | Top Critics (11) | Fresh (6) | Rotten (16)

  • Ill-advised and amateurishly executed, Ass Backwards begins with a passably funny concept and runs it into the ground within 20 minutes.

    April 27, 2020 | Full Review…
  • 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.

    November 8, 2013 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • 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.

    November 7, 2013 | Full Review…
  • 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.

    November 7, 2013 | Full Review…
  • Raphael and Wilson are impressively committed to these misadventures, but it's a shame the movie is so cruel to the characters.

    November 7, 2013 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • Ass Backwards overcomes the obvious beats with clever, occasionally dark jokes that reveal the sharpness of its stars' writing.

    November 7, 2013 | Rating: B | Full Review…
