Bottoms (2023, D: Seligman) S: Rachel Sennott, Ayo Edebiri




want to get punched in the face by hot girls? WELL GET IN LINE. directed by Emma Seligman, starring Rachel Sennott and Ayo Edebiri, watch the explicit red band trailer for #BottomsMovie now.

in select theaters August 25 + additional cities September 1.

Best friends P.J. and Josie have one goal for their senior year: to hook up with the most popular girls in school. How? By forming an underground fight club to teach girls how to fight back against abusive footballers, of course!

Directed By: Emma Seligman
Starring: Rachel Sennott, Ayo Edebiri, Havana Rose Liu, Nicholas Galitzine, Miles Fowler, and Marshawn Lynch
Written By: Emma Seligman and Rachel Sennott
Reviews from SXSW were very positive: https://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/bottoms

This is the second film from Emma Seligman, director of Shiva Baby. If you have not seen Shiva Baby, I highly recommend it.

That trailer isnít particularly funny. It looks like itís trying too hard to be vulgar. The football players just wear their uniforms (pads included) all the time?

However, there arenít enough raunchy teen comedies out there these days so I might check it out if the reviews are good.

Ah, ok, that is the actress from Willow (I didn't see her in the listed roles).

And Cindy Crawford's daughter/Rachel Bilson's doppleganger.

Finally someone gives Marshawn Lynch a feature film role. Dude is absolutely hysterical.

I enjoyed this. A big mash up of tons of high school films but still its own thing. It is SUPER heightened. I don't think it will be for everyone. For sure will be a cult film.

Yeah, the satire is certainly not subtle, but I mostly enjoyed it.

I just saw this. I didn't like this at all. Wasn't funny and the characters weren't likeable. Especially the two leads. There were a lot of moments that were pretty cringey. I like to try indie movies every now and then, but this simply wasn't for me.

I will say that Kaia Gerber looks like her Mom from 30 years ago.

I thought this was excellent. Over-the-top satire, almost a melodrama in a way. Really funny, and while it leaned into many tropes it had sone surprises, too, especially the "body count" near the end. Like, that was a thing that happened and they committed to it!

Very enjoyable, I'd watch this again and would be glad to catch more from this creative team. Elizabeth Banks is doing well in the producer game, in my opinion.

On digital tomorrow. Critic score is great as is the audience score.

Been waiting for this one. I love Ayo.

Really got a "trying too hard" vibe out of this one, but it did have some good moments.

I thought this was really funny. The filmís narrative barely holds together though and doesnít fully work. That didnít really bother me though because like I said it was funny. I had to google some of the lesbian culture references after the film. For instance the audience I saw it with went crazy for the Bell Hooks reference. Which I didnít get. Overall Iíd give it. 3.5/5.

This was really good. Fun, witty, somewhat original. Strong leads. Very well made.
