Bottoms is a hysterical satire of the high school experience told from the perspective of the unattractive and talentless queer students who form a fight club to get laid. While high schools and students have changed over the years, the same anxieties and insecurities forever loom over the next waves of students in an endless cycle. Playing in a very similar vein to the 21 Jump Street film, this film’s particular high school is a hyper stylized one that revolves around its lead football player and his effect on the entire town. Queer kids are no longer bullied for being queer, but they are if they’re considered queer, ugly, and talentless. You can be two of those and get away with it, but never all three as our main characters remark early on.
