The first trailer for the comedy Ass Backwards has been released online.  Directed by Chris Nelson, the film tells the story of two childhood best friends (Casey Wilson and June Diane Raphael) who first met at a beauty pageant where they placed dead last.  Now underachieving adults, the two receive an invitation to return to their hometown to attend an anniversary pageant, and they see the opportunity to prove everyone wrong and win the crown.  There’s a strong Romy and Michele’s High School Reunion vibe in this trailer, and the comedic pairing of Wilson and Rapahel (who also co-wrote the film together) is definitely promising.

Hit the jump to watch the trailer.  The film also stars Alicia Silverstone, Jon Cryer, Vincent D’Onofrio, Brian Geraghty, Bob Odenkirk, Paul Scheer, and Sandy MartinAss Backwards will be available VOD on September 30th and hits theaters on November 8th.

Here’s the official synopsis for Ass Backwards:

Kate (June Diane Raphael) and Chloe (Casey Wilson) are two childhood best friends who met when they placed dead last in their hometown beauty pageant. 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.
