This movie was very funny!
Josh G
It's ridiculous and obviously raunchy (duh, it's about porn) and if you go into it realizing that it's a Happy Madison movie, you might just enjoy it as much as I do!
katden
This is the worst movie ever made.

Stay as Far as you can from this atrocity and watch something good like the Benchwarmers (I know that was horrible to but you at least laughed).

What was clearly the 1st sign of what direction "Bucky" was heading into is when we saw an inbreed farmer (probably left over from Deliverance) smacked peanut butter all over his Junk so his goat could "snack" on it, this was still in the middle of the intro credits before we even get to Bucky himself. Once the Peanut Butter and Goat credits finally ended we see Bucky at his job as a grocery sacker at "Fooders" where his boss played by Curtis Armstrong (AKA Booger) fires poor Bucky (Not clear why but it does not really matter anyways). I'll skip over the dinner seen with Bucky's Parents and get to where Bucky goes to his friends house to watch a new movie. The movie that Bucky watches (And at the same time gets off to) is a 1970's porno of his parents. At this point Bucky realizes his destiny and decides to go to Hollywood to be a porn star. The rest of this you will have to rent from Red Box and experience the holocaust yourself, I can't bring myself to type anymore. I'm having violent flashbacks as it is with the little I managed to hammer out. Please GOD, Strike down these unholy images from my brain! Take me to my special place where I may forget.

My first thoughts was to trash both my TV and Blu-Ray player so I could sanctify my entertainment system but came to my senses in time before I had found my sons metal bat in the garage. Upon returning "Bucky" back to the Red Box Kiosk I hesitated briefly because I was afraid the machine would abruptly catch fire after inserting Bucky back into it, luckily it went without incident.

Another amateurish piece of cinematic trash from the Happy Gilmore writing desk of Adam Sandler and Nick Swardson. This not even remotely funny movie revolves around the adventures of the titular character Bucky Larson...who has buck teeth (hence the name Bucky, get it) a Dutch boy haircut, and a small penis. This Iowa dimwit (all Iowans are depicted as morons) heads for the bright lights of Hollywood to pursue a career as a porn star after discovering that both his parents were 70's porn stars. Many agonizing twists and turns later, Bucky rises to fame and has an unlikely romance with Kathy (Christina Ricci) a sweet waitress in a dismal diner. The only bright light in this otherwise dim bulb of a film, Ricci's character is pleasant and restrained. Why such a talented actress would allow herself to appear in this stink-bomb remains a total mystery.
This nauseating movie finally arrives at it's one truly captivating moment...the closing credits. Bucky Larson may have been born to be a star but the same cannot be said for Nick Swardson or anyone else associated with this debacle.

I cannot for the life of me figure out who thought this movie was a good idea but I can guess you'll probably find them working at a Burger King near you right about now. Directed by a guy named Tom Brady (which probably has the star quarterback considering a lawsuit) who also directed Rob Schneider's The Animal and The Hot Chick. Bucky Larson happens to have the lowest IMDB rating I've come across yet for a film that had wide release. 2.1 is not going to cut it these days. Need more convincing? Fine, how's a 9/100 metacritic rating for you? I wouldn't be surprised if nobody hires this director again, not even for a youtube video.

Do not purchase this film based on people giving it 5 star and 4 star reviews. That's saying that there's no movie better. Check other sources first if you're on the fence. This movie should have never been made.

If you haven't heard of Bucky Larson: Born to Be a Star, then you are extremely fortunate. Considering it only made about $2.5 million in box office receipts and left theaters after two weeks, it's an understandable oversight. Produced by Adam Sandler's Happy Madison studio, the film stars comic Nick Swardson as the titular Bucky, a man-child who discovers his uptight parents were once famous porn stars. With this newfound knowledge, Bucky decides to follow in his parents' footsteps and sets his sights on Hollywood, where his small genitalia make him a popular gimmick. There's more to the story, but it's really not worth getting into. This aggressively unfunny and severely misguided comedy is the worst movie I saw in 2011; do what you will with that information.

I know a lot of people hate this movie but I absolutely love it. I'm a huge Nick Swardson AND Christina Ricci fan and I thought this was completely hilarious. It's ridiculous and obviously raunchy (duh, it's about porn) and if you go into it realizing that it's a Happy Madison movie, you might just enjoy it as much as I do!

The movie makes a prominent point about relationships, albeit somewhat hidden towards the end of the movie. Swardson and Sandler have been moving away from knee-slapping comedy and making films that are more message oriented. I am perplexed by some of the "message" which tends to be highly raunchy and out of my league, but I know going in that the content is going to be very liberal and frankly absurd. The Swardson/Sandler crew did much better with Jack and Larry or Grandma's Boy. Both were a lot funnier than this one. I am not a fan of alternative lifestyles or sex humor stemming from same, but I am open-minded enough to set aside my preferences for an hour or so. I wish it had been funnier. There was no DRIVE MONKEY DRIVE scene. What I did find was that beneath the unadulterated sickness, there was a message of honesty and love. If you are willing to watch, you might want to do so alone first. This is NOT a family movie, and I would not recommend watching it with parents, grandparents, pastors, priests, pizza delivery personnel or political pundits. But that's just me.
