Bum Notes Review with images

AdvantagesBrilliantly funny and violent slapstick

DisadvantagesNot for all

"The third in the unofficial ‘alternative comedy’ trilogy featuring Rik Mayall and Adrian Edmondson, following on from the almost forgotten Filthy Rich and Catflap and, of course, the legendary Young Ones. Bottom was a wonderfully grimy creation, a playground of extreme violence and absurd slapstick mixed with cartoon surrealism, the many double entendres which spewed forth holding it all together like the crusty bits which kept Richie’s underpants ..."

British Comedy At It's Best

AdvantagesIt's Hilarious

DisadvantagesOnly Two Serie's

"If you have never heard of bottom you haven't seen good comedy. Origanally made in 1993 and aired on bbc 2 it's legend lives on in vhs form.

BEWARE OF THE CURRIED SPROUTS.

AdvantagesExcruciatingly Violently Funny.

DisadvantagesAlas, Tis No More.

"Bottom. Created by Rik Mayall and Adrian Edmondson. Bottom was made from 1991 to 1995 and contained 18 episodes over 3 series. Cast: Richie Richard (Rik Mayall). Richie is a sad, lonely, pathetic, desperate, ill washed with XXXL underpanted (well you get the picture) excuse for a man. But he has big dreams and believes he is destined for better things, like lying on a desert island and "snogging all the birds a fella can grapple with" Edward ..." Read review

Edward Hitler, come down here at once

AdvantagesAnarchic, violent, and hilarious

DisadvantagesDoesn't appeal to all tastes

"If there's ever been a subject that divides people, it's comedy - what one person loves, another hates, what reduces some people to jelly will leave others stoney faced. Bottom doesn't do anything to change this (hey, I'm not going to try to convince anyone that it's got universal appeal) but I might be able to convince you that it's not all bad. Let's take a trip down misery lane (turning left into pervy avenue) Richie and Eddie are two sad pervies ..." Read review

May I Say Thats A Smashing Blouse You Have On

AdvantagesWell Written, Well Acted, Great Laugh

DisadvantagesNot For Kids!!

"Many people have likened Bottom to toilet humour, but it's much more than that, sure you have your knob/fart gags, but there is also underlying incidental gags, that are, very funny, very clever and that most people seemingly miss. The title of this opinion is one of those very gags, ok the line isn't hilariously funny on it's own, but in the context of the show in which it's said, it is hilarious. Bottom's concept is two guys Richard Richard (Mayall) ..." Read review
