Trivia

The scene in Bottom: Apocalypse (1991) which Eddie disguises himself as the Grim Reaper and enters Richie Bedroom and tricks Richie into allowing him to no longer pay the rent and also tricks Richie into giving him the remaining £300 and Richie's copy of "Girly World" mocks "A Christmas Carol" by Charles Dickens, which Ebeneezer Scrooge is visited by three ghosts in his bedroom on Christmas Eve Night.

User Reviews

Greatest physical pervy humour there ever was
27 April 1999 | by (Hull, England) – See all my reviews

Bottom. Comedy masterpiece. From the opening episode 'Smells', to the most recent live tour 'Hooligan's Island', Bottom has succeeded in making anyone who is into fart gags and frying pan bashed gasmen, laugh uncontrollably.

The two central characters, Richie and Eddie, are portrayed superbly by Rik Mayall and Adrian Edmondson, and timely appearances by old Young Ones favourtie Christopher Ryan and that guy who plays spudgun add to the quality of this excellent series.

Most viewers from countries other than the UK may struggle to identify with these violent, sexually obsessed icons, but us brits lap it up.

Watch them all NOW !!!!!!!!
