Need a Place to Be Alone? Consider a Showing of "Bucky Larson"

Posted By on Mon, Sep 12, 2011 at 11:30 AM

In his review of the instantly-forgettable 30 Minutes or Less, Weekly reviewer Bob Grimm mentioned his first impression of Bucky Larson: Born to Be a Star:


A trailer for an upcoming movie that [Nick] Swardson headlines, Bucky Larson: Born to Be a Star, previewed before the movie. I don't like to prejudge a movie by its trailer, but it sure does look like pure dog shit.

Turns out, most of the movie-going public agrees with Grimm, since the film averaged EIGHT people per screening this weekend, making $1.45 million, good enough for fifteenth place in the box office rankings. Maybe it was the universal panning of the film by critics (Colin Boyd reviews it this Thursday; SPOILER ALERT: he's not going to shift the score off zero), but it seems people believe a movie about a killer virus sounds like a better time at the local megaplex. Are we getting closer to the day where Adam Sandler is forbidden from making movies? Looks like it, and not a moment too soon.
