WE GOT THE UPRIGHT CITIZENS BRIGADE! One of improv comedy’s most innovative, irreverent performing troupes returns in a flick that’s equal parts stoner farce and precise political commentary. Bad things are brewing in White Sands, Florida’s mythical Spring Break capital. Despite its hedonic heritage of drunken buffoonery and World-Famous Ass Contests, the town sits at a moral crossroads. Sheriff Terry Moran (Matt Walsh), running for mayor, wants to clean up the place. Can he do that? Can conservatives kill Spring Break? Not if the sheriff’s wife Doreen (Amy Poehler, Saturday Night Live) has anything to say about it. A three-time Ass Contest winner, depressed suburbanite, and umbrella-festooned–drink lover, Doreen initiates ad hoc Ass Contests across town, inciting revolt by spring breakers and citizens alike. Will Doreen and the sheriff find love again? Can White Sands survive without Ass Contests? Partially shot on Sanibel Island, Wild Girls Gone answers these questions and more in the ongoing tradition of a hilarious midnight stoner comedy.
