Storyline

Living in small town Iowa, Bucky Larson is a simple minded, uneducated, beaver toothed young man still living with his protective parents, Jeremiah and Debbie Larson. Initially saddened when he is fired from his job as a bagger at a supermarket, he eventually sees it as a sign that he is destined for greatness in some other field. Based on some information he learns, Bucky believes that destiny is to become a porn star, despite he being a virgin and only having recently learned what masturbation is. With his parents' blessing, Bucky hops on a bus to Los Angeles to make it big there as a porn star. He is taken under the wings of a few people in LA. On the professional side, he meets the reigning king of porn, Dick Shadow, who only sees in Bucky a laughing stock. But washed up porn director Miles Deep stumbles across what he sees as an untapped niche market for Bucky's limited talents. Miles has the challenge of trying to convince investors who only see in Bucky the antithesis of porn. ... Written by Huggo

goofy people are funny...
16 June 2012 | by MLDinTNSee all my reviews

that is what I got out of this film. Bucky Larson is about the goofiest character one could come up with. I also think some of these reviews are too negative. Sure, it wasn't great, but it also wasn't the worst film of the year. There's just something funny about watching messed up people in movies.

Bucky Larson has 2 bucked teeth, making him look like a rabbit. He also has a 70s hairstyle and bad accent. He gets the idea to be a porn star after finding out his parents made porno movies. So, he movies to LA, meets a cute waitress, and makes his dreams come true. The faces he makes while making his dreams come true are funny. It's so silly, you have to laugh.

FINAL VERDICT: A decent adult, crude comedy.
