Bucky Larson: Born to be a Star – A film review by Daniel Prinn


Bucky Larson: Born to be a Star

Release Date: September 9, 2011

Director: Tom Brady

Stars: Nick Swardson, Christina Ricci, Don Johnson

Runtime: 97 min

Tagline: There are no small actors. Just small parts.

Bucky Larson is an ordinary loser who lives in the Midwest, and after he sees a nude flick, that his parents starred in, he wants to follow in their footsteps and heads out for the bright lights of Hollywood.

The film fails in all aspects and is painfully unfunny. I never thought I’d ever see a movie even more stupid than Jack and Jill. The plot sucks, there’s little attempt at character development that isn’t very interesting at all, and the acting isn’t good. It feels like a spoof film, and it’s hard to get good acting with this poorly written script.

The film relies on three main unfunny jokes: Bucky’s buck teeth, his small penis, and his premature ejaculation.

The only good thing about this film is the short appearance by Adam Herschman (Glen from Accepted), he wasn’t exactly funny but it was nice to see him in a film again. Like I said, it’s hard to be funny in this flick. The talents of Nick Swardson and Christina Ricci are extremely wasted.

I can’t think of anything funny about this crap. Did someone give Christina Ricci the memo that this was supposed to be a mindless comedy and not a romantic drama?

I don’t know how this is a movie. It’s just horrible and not even fun at all. It’s a chore to watch. It’s a fail in every aspect; and you can even tell by its horrid movie poster.
