Director Tom Brady teams up with scriptwriters Adam Sandler, Allen Covert, and Nick Swardson (who also plays the lead), to make Bucky Larson: Born to Be a Star.


The story revolves around Bucky Larson, a grown man-child possessing buck-teeth who works as a bagger. Early in the film, he is fired from the job and is saddened. Eventually he tells himself that he is meant to be somewhere else. By chance, he becomes aware of his parents’ morbid secret- they have worked as porn stars in the past.  Thinking it to be his place to be in, he travels to Los Angeles to pursue a career as a porn star as well. Soon enough, an unsuccessful porn film-director (Miles Deep), discovers him and wants to give Bucky, an unusually talented man with an unusually small penis, a shot in his films. Love comes to him from a waitress named Kathy. However, when he proposes to her, she rejects him unashamedly. Will the two unite? 


Nick Swardson plays the lead of a buck-toothed man-child. His acting skills are commendable and his portrayal of Bucky is very well received. However, owing to the bad script, Nick’s performance failed to meet his level of work.


The comedy film, in simple words, is devoid of humour. Even the storyline does not seem appealing to the audience. A man-child who absolutely has no knowledge of sex goes on to become a porn star. To complement the weak story, some physical gags are shown, and the obvious sex jokes are cracked, yet the film makes no progress. Films involving stupid comedy often do manage to pull it off, but unfortunately, that is not the case with this one. 


1. A few punches that may make one laugh.
2. Reasonable performance by most of the actors.


1. Humour. The same old sex jokes are point blank unfunny.
2. Restrictions to viewership due to sexual content.
3. A poor script and storyline.


Don’t watch it unless your sense of humour has hit rock bottom and you want to remain a fan of Nick Swardson.
