Bucky Larson Born to Be a Star is the story of a small town boy who moves to Hollywood to become a porn star.
Bucky bags groceries in his small town in Minnesota until he learns that his conservative parents used to be porn stars. Feeling he has found his destiny, Bucky travels to Hollywood and tries to break into the business. At first, they laugh at him, but eventually they discover he might just have something to offer.
I’m betting it’s a huge dong.
Unfortunately, here it is.
Bucky Larson Born to Be a Star is an Adam Sandler production, with one of his stable guys, Nick Swarsdon, in the lead. Tom Brady (not the football player banging Gisele Bundchen) is directing, and he directed other Sandler-produced films such as The Animal and The Comebacks, so you know he has the sensibilities of a retarded three year old.
The script was written by Swarsdon and Allan Covert, who is another of Sandler’s go-to guys, so it should fit in nicely with the other films he’s produced. Bucky Larson looks like the worst Sandler production yet, and until I’m proven wrong I have zero faith in this movie. Still, Bucky Larson looks like every other bad Sandler film, with lots of stupid characters, fart jokes and uncomfortable scenes where they are all just phoning it in.
I don’t know what happened to Sandler, or Happy Madison productions, but they have managed to go from a comedic powerhouse to a joke of itself. Sandlers last three movies have been financial, and critical flops, with Bucky Larson soon to be in line for that prestigious honour. How HM productions created Billy Madison, Happy Gilmore and Big Daddy, is beyond me.

What’s Good About It?
I’ve seen some of Swarsdon’s standup, and he’s a really funny guy, if he can bring that to the film, then it may be funny.
What’s Bad About It?
Everything, Bucky Larson is going to suck.
Our Clever Prediction
If Bucky Larson grosses more than 25 million I will lose all faith in humanity. This movie is going to be worse than Macruber, book it.
