Goofs

In the episode 'Apocalypse', Eddie (disguised as the grim reaper) states that he doesn't know how to play chess, and Richie says that he will teach him. However, in the later episode 'Culture', it is the other way around - Eddie knows how to play chess, and Richie does not. See more »

Quotes

[the boys believe they've just killed the meter reader]
Eddie: Hey! Maybe he's not dead. Maybe he's just stunned! Why don't you give him the Kiss of Life?
Richie: Yeah!
[pause, disgusted look]
Richie: No I will NOT! You sad pervy! We've got a dead body in the house and your first idea is to sexually assault it!

Hilarious comedy from one of the best double acts around
16 February 2004 | by See all my reviews

Bottom is one of the funniest comedies created. Every time I watch it I can't help but laugh hysterically at the antics of Rik Mayall and Ade Edmondson who are the best double act British comedy has ever produced. Violent, crude loud and hilarious. A must see
