Goofs

After Eddie fills out the competition on the cereal box, he edits it slightly and declares that his final answer is 'Hot girls, skimpy knockers, look out everyone!". In fact, after removing the words he mentions, his actual final answer would be "bloody hot there, that's why. What a stupid question. besides, there's lots of birds knocking about the beach, wearing skimpy bikinis, knockers hanging out for everyone get a good look. Also, he mentions removing the words 'the' and 'is'. Those words were never in his original answer. See more »

Edward Hitler: Phwoar! You know I think I did! I dropped a floater this morning, it looked like it come straight from a Canadian logging camp! I tell ya, when that gets out into the channel it's going to be a danger to shipping!
Richard Richard: [Disgusted] Nice to know, Eddie and jolly interesting information, but, what I really meant was did you get the Sunday papers?
Edward Hitler: No.
Richard Richard: Oh, never mind, I'll go scrap them off the mat.

Absolutely Amazing!
3 April 2005 | by liamw02See all my reviews

I absolutely love bottom and this for me was the most hilarious 90 or so minutes i have ever encountered. I especially like Richie, with his extra long weird laughs and when he says Eddie about 50 times and then asks him a question!

I sincerely hope that they will make more live shows, they still have the amazing talent to go on for a life time! Apsolute 1st class entertainment.

All the live shows and series are brilliant.

Rik Mayall and Adrian Edmondson really should continue their partnership and produce more of what can only be described as the best comedy show in history!
