The Worst Piece of Crap I’ve Ever Seen

I’ve always been a fan of film. When I was little, I rented As Good As It Gets a decade before I could appreciate it. I liked it still. Ever since, I’ve tried to watch movies that challenge me. Some prove rewarding like Antichrist, others leave me wanting that time back. But last weekend, I tried to get a refund. I have NEVER asked for a refund for a movie before. Sure, I walked out of Michael Clayton, but I went back because I knew it would redeem itself (and it was nominated for a slew of Oscars that year). So what was the movie I walked out of and tried to get reimbursed for? None other than Bucky Larson: Born to be a Star.
Some of you may remember Grandma’s Boy from a few years back.
It was marketed the same way as Bucky Larson, and though it disappeared from the box office as quickly as it appeared, it gained a following on DVD. But where the two movies differ is this: Grandma’s Boy was funny and had a plot, Bucky is offensive and is a one-joke movie that isn’t funny.
Bucky Larson is a small town Iowan. When he discovers his parents were small-time pornstars in their own day, he thinks he’s Hollywood royalty. So he ventures off to the West Coast to star in “all nude movies”. When he makes it big, it’s for all the wrong reasons.
Buckyis one of the worst movies I’ve ever seen. I can’t think of a movie that has left more of a bad taste in my mouth than this one. Apparently, I’m not the only one. On Rotten Tomatoes, NO ONE likes it. Not a single positive review from everyone. It offends its viewers by lacking any intelligence or craft. It’s offensive to Midwesterners as they paint Iowans as idiot hillbillies. Nick Swardson plays Bucky as if Bucky has Down Syndrome, something that should never be made fun of. The jokes wouldn’t even be funny to those kids who enjoy movies with sick and childish senses of humor.
I know just by writing this, I’m creating publicity for Bucky Larson, but I can’t let this go. This is a movie that has no redeeming qualities. It sucks and tramples your soul. I wouldn’t even recommend downloading it illegally. The MPAA would arrest you on bad taste. Skip it at all costs. 0 out of 5 stars
