I just watched Bucky Larson: Born To Be a Star primarily because I've heard that it is one of the worst movies ever made. This is a rarity for me as when I hear that a movie is bad by several people, I avoid it like the plague. However, I was curious as to how bad it would be, so I gave it a try.
The movie is pretty terrible, but it's definitely an exercise in the "so bad, it's good" category. The movie concerns the titular character (Nick Swardson) and his "destiny" to enter the porn industry after discovering that his parents were porn stars in the 1970's. He moves to Los Angeles to pursue his dream. Along the way, he meets Kathy, a kind waitress (Christina Ricci), Miles Deep, a washed-up porn producer (Don Johnson), Dick Shadow, a porn star that lives up to his name (Stephen Dorff), as well as various other characters. Bucky wants to be "a star" in "nude movies" but he has trouble breaking into it because of his small penis.
The humor is childish, at best,(there is an endless amount of tiny penis and big teeth jokes)It qualifies as "stupid funny". Personally, the only times I laughed were during the scenes with Kevin Nealon's "roommate from hell" character, and the facial expressions of Nick Swardson. Acting wise, nothing to write home about. Nick Swardson's role is at times annoying and over the top, but the fact that he put so much dedication into it is worth applauding.
Overall, compared to other movies that I've given the dreaded 1 star to, Bucky Larson has to be the best. If you're looking for a stupid movie to watch and not think too much about, this is for you. But if you want a more high-brow comedy, I advise you to stay far, far, away from this movie.
