June Diane Raphael and Casey Wilson Made a Movie About Pageant Life


Writing partners June Diane Raphael and Casey Wilson might have been responsible for the … that was Bride Wars, but now they’re back with Ass Backwards, which premiered at Sundance earlier this year. The movie comes out on the big screen in September and stars Raphael and Wilson as Kate and Chloe, who have been best friends since they met competing as children in a beauty pageant that they both did horribly in.

Hijincks will clearly ensue:

Now they are all grown up and living in New York City, where Chloe works as a “girl in a box” at a nightclub and Kate is a CEO….of her own one-woman egg donor “corporation”. Lost in delusion, they believe they are living large until an invitation to their hometown pageant arrives and their past comes back to haunt them. Join these two loveable losers as they take an ass backwards journey home to reclaim their crown, stopping off at a women’s separatist commune, an amateur strip club competition, and meeting their favorite reality TV star along the way.

So it’s basically Romy and Michele’s High School Reunion set in the world of pageantry. WE’LL TAKE IT.
