Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Ass Backwards is a crass comedy written by and starring June Diane Raphael and Casey Wilson. The characters are incredibly dim hopefuls in a beauty pageant, and through all the silliness, there is a brief message about how women should not rely on others to decide how beautiful they are. Language is the major issue, with many uses of "f--k," "s--t," and a use of "c--ksucker," as well as exclamatory mentions of "God" and "Jesus." There's some very mild, brief nudity, and some sexual innuendo. One character is a "cage dancer" in a club and another takes hormone shots with hypodermic needles (her needles fall into the hands of some dismayed children in one shot). A minor character is said to be a sex addict and a meth addict. He is shown smoking meth and drinking whisky in one scene.
No sexual situations, aside from some awkward kissing, but the movie has some sexual innuendo. The characters are briefly seen from behind, at a distance, peeing on a sidewalk. One character plays a kind of "cage dancer" in a club, though she doesn't strip. The other is a professional egg donor. A minor character admits to being a sex addict. A topless woman is shown dancing with black tape over her nipples. The song "I Touch Myself" is heard.
"F--k" or "f---ing" are used several times, as well as "s--t." "God" and "Jesus" are used a few times as exclamations. We also hear "bitch," "damn it," and "c--ksucker" -- and of course, the title.
In the midst of all the stupidity, there is a message about the falseness of beauty pageants, and how we should not rely on others to feel good about ourselves.
Craigslist is mentioned, and a soda machine stocked with Pepsi and Mountain Dew is shown.

One of the main characters takes hormone injections with hypodermic needles. In one scene, she gives them up and drops her purse among a group of children. They pick up the hypo needles and look puzzled. A minor character, a reality TV star, is said to be a meth addict. He is shown smoking -- and drinking whisky -- in one scene.
