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
