It's one of the raunchiest teen comedies in recent memory, but is Bottoms streaming anywhere just yet?
Starring a who's who of young Hollywood—including The Idol actress Rachel Sennott (who also co-wrote the script for the funny flick), The Bear star Ayo Edebiri, Nicholas Galitzine from Red, White & Royal Blue, model-actress Kaia Gerber, among others—Bottoms follows two high-school seniors who set up a fight club to impress popular cheerleaders.
“The initial references were just the shitty guy sex comedies,” director/co-writer Emma Seligman told Indiewire. “We were like, why do they get to be horny—” “And superhero movies, too,” Sennott added. “Like ‘Scott Pilgrim,’ because it’s about how he has superpowers and he’s literally like, ‘Merp.’ It’s like, he gets superpowers? OK, fucking let me punch someone. I love that movie, by the way! But do you know what I mean? It’s like, let us do that.”
It's a hijinks-filled premise that has proven to be a box office hit (debuting in just ten theaters in the U.S., the comedy pulled in $516,254 during its opening weekend), but is Bottoms available to stream just yet? Here's everything we know.
Is 'Bottoms' streaming?
As of now, those interested in watching Bottoms will have to hightail it over to a movie theater, as the comedy is not yet available on streaming.
After premiering at South by Southwest in March, Bottoms kicked off its limited theatrical release in the United States on Friday, August 25, before expanding to additional screens on Friday, September 1.
However, once Bottoms does hit a streaming platform, it will likely be Prime Video. The movie was distributed by MGM, which was acquired by Amazon in 2022 in a massive $8.5 billion deal to boost its video catalog, as reported by Forbes. Previous MGM titles have hit the Prime Video platform about 45 days after their theatrical release, which means viewers should expect to be able to stream Bottoms sometime in early October.
That means you will need a Prime Video subscription if you want to stream Bottoms at home. Currently, access to Prime Video is included with a general Amazon Prime membership, which costs $14.99 per month or $139.00 per year. Non-Prime members can still get Prime Video as a standalone streaming service for $8.99 monthly.
What is the 'Bottoms' movie about?
"In this refreshingly unique comedy, two girls, PJ and Josie, start a fight club as a way to lose their virginities to cheerleaders. And their bizarre plan works!" reads the official logline of the film, per MGM. "The fight club gains traction, and soon the most popular girls in school are beating each other up in the name of self-defense. But PJ and Josie find themselves in over their heads and in need of a way out before their plan is exposed."
