Advantages: will definatly appeal to avid bottom fans, have some good funny points
Disadvantages: it is a rather predictable plot and the ending is cut sort
As a big fan of Rik Mayall and Adrian Edmonson I feel I must defend them and the film. i have always been a great fan of the pair and love Bottom, it has to be my favourite comedy ever. watching as a child I have fond memories of watching the seris with my big brother and laughing at every rude, crude and down right naughty behaviour. Even now we often exchange qutoes form the film making each other laugh and enjoying true comedy genius. which is why I feel I must defend this film.
anyone who has seen the bottom series will know that if there is any couple who should not be allowed to run a hotel its is definatly these too. If you meet them at the hotel reception desk your sure to make a quick exit. the story follows richie and eddie running the worst hotel in britain, with guests receiving a little more than b n b, try ill manners, crude behaviour, poor service and throw in radio active poisoning. with the two clueless on how to run a hotel they manage with nothing more than each other a fat chef and a mental waiter. The story opens with richie who is running the hotel9 god help us all) trying to wake eddie, unbeknown to him eddie is on his way home form the pub (suprise! suprise!) and has left richie a series of tape recording to make the pretence that he is actually there. Making his way to the dining room richie manages to throw in a couple of insults to his paying guests which he revels in as well as some pervy behavour. When eddie finaly makes it home he find an interesting way to 'file the bills' then help richie with breakfast. Richie however is on form concerning himself with the importnat guest mrs foxfur first, another triumph for richie in the point scoring he has goin on with his other guests.
I love the scene where richie is trying to act professional with his 'FEEB one boiled egg' routine which never fails to make me laugh, which of course end in the usual eddie and richie fight which we have all come to love from the series.
As the film progresses we see the arrival of the nice family and the beautiful gina carbonara who are in for a rude awakening at this hotel, which ultimatley ends in them all being at the receiving end of this two hapless pair, from sexual harassment to an interesting way to look after you children and theft of property which transpires into an interesting way to remove the evidence, i.e fish hooking the guest with his nipple ring. The overall plot of them poisoning the guests is predictable but when you look at the series its easy to understand why this was implemented into the plot these too are hardly capable of cooking a decent meal between them its was only a matter of time untill they killed someone.
Granted Im not saying this movie is in anyway perfect, there are some moment that will make you cringe, some bad writing and over acting but hey lets not forget it is BOTTOM, what else should we expect? surely as bottom fans we should see this film for what is is another addition to the bottom library followng the usual plots of the series. I say give this one a go sit back and really watch it you'll be suprise at just how many funny lines you actually miss.
Summary: give it a go you might enjoy it
