‘Untalented gays’ PJ and Josie start a fight club to get the attention of their long-time popular girl crushes under the guise of teaching girls self defence, showing that lesbians will do anything except ask a girl out. However the pair find themselves in too deep and must find a way to end the club before their secret plan comes out. The comedic duo of Rachel Sennott and Ayo Edebiri is nothing short of perfect with hilarious one liners and deadpan humour, alongside a whole ensemble of memorable performances, such as Nicholas Galitzine who fully commits to his role as meathead jock Jeff and Ruby Cruz as the very endearing Hazel, who takes things a little too literally. There will no doubt be someone in this bunch of messy but charming characters who you will see yourself in. With brilliant writing and directing from Emma Seligman who seamlessly transitions between heartwarming, violent and comedic moments, and an original soundtrack from Charli XCX, this future camp classic is both incredibly current and gives in to early 2000’s high-school comedy nostalgia. Bottoms is bloody, horny, and unserious making it a refreshing change of pace from your average queer film. So if you’re down for a fun time, get your popcorn ready! (It also gets bonus points for bringing back end credit bloopers).
