Bottoms [2023] Movie Review – Rachel Sennott, Ayo Edebiri, Ruby Cruz

Bottoms - Prime Video Canada November 2023

Bottoms updates teen movie tropes with a comedy that’ll leave you in stitches if you can handle raunchy humor. Propulsive and over-the-top.

Starring Rachel Sennott, Ayo Edebiri and Ruby Cruz, the movie is scarily unapologetic in its raw, ironic caricature of young adult relationships and the high school pecking order. Beliebe me, every single taboo is potentially broken.

But nothing is perfect. While Bottoms has raunchy and raucous white lesbian humor, any aspect outside out it deviates to a cliche, invisible, or worse, a punchline. It’s like Emma Seligman and Sennot opened TikTok and wrote a script out of every single cliche they could find.

In Bottoms… you’ll find more crude sex jokes than you can shake a pom-pom at. It’s also bizarrely violent. In fact, the movie tries to shock by showing girls being beaten up. Sadly, after the first couple of times, it gets repetitive and boring.

It’s not or everyone, myself included. The movie will probably be regarded as a cult classic in years to come but, right now, it is a nice try that could have been so much more.

Should You Watch It?

Bottoms is two things at once. One on hand, it’s a fun and sweet little coming-of-age raunch comedy. On the other hand, it’s weird.
