A small-town manchild with big buck-teeth, Bucky Larson (Nick Swardson), stumbles upon a family secret: His quiet and reserved parents were famous porn stars in the 1970s. This motivates him to leave northern Iowa for Hollywood, hoping to follow in their footsteps and fulfill his destiny as the biggest adult-film star in the world. Unfortunately, he has no idea how to become a porn star like his parents, and his penis is incredibly small.
Never before have I been so offended by a film. If Seth Macfarlane, Sacha Baron Cohen, Trey Parker & Matt Stone and Ricky Gervais got together to make a film, it would still not offend me as much as the fact that Bucky Larson: Born To Be A Star is considered to be comedy.
If you've looked at my tags, you're probably wondering why Adam Sandler's name is there, as he doesn't star in the film. The reason is that this film was produced by Adam Sandler's production company, Happy Madison Productions, and whats more is that he was one of the screenwriters on the film, alongside the film's star, Nick Swardson, and Allen Covert, that guy who's appeared in nearly all of Adam Sandler's films.
The screenwriters seem to be going by the idea that the film will be funnier due to how much more gross-out they can make it, and they do this by having Bucky masturbate, in full public, while auditioning for a Mac and Cheese commercial, premature ejaculating while hollering like a molested chimpanzee, and having the semen land on a granny's top. As you can tell, these jokes don't work, instead being pretty horrendous throughout the cliched, generic and all-round awful script.

Funnier than anything you'll see in the film
One thing that is required all throughout the film is a major suspension of disbelief, as barely anything that happens makes sense. The Matrix sequels make more sense than this film, and frankly, i'd consider them to be more realistic.
With no redeeming factors whatsoever, not only does Bucky Larson: Born To Be A Star deserve to be called one of the worst films of 2011, but also one of the worst films of all time, comedy or otherwise. You don't even need to see the film to know this, you just have to know that Pauly Shore makes a cameo appearance.
