Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Icky and repellent in ways it probably did not intend."
‑ Rafer Guzman, Newsday
"Through all this, one feels nothing more strongly than an acute sympathy for all involved -- in particular Ricci, who gives her role more than it deserves, and Herrmann, a classy character actor who once won a Tony."
‑ Andrew Barker, Variety
"I'm not sure how many tedious sex jokes and humorless physical gags people can take before they run out of the theater screaming, but Bucky Larson: Born to Be a Star certainly tests the limits."
‑ Amy Curtis, We Got This Covered
"Working under the incorrect assumption that anything having to do with porn is hilarious, Bucky Larson is a consistently strained comedy without much charm or wit."
‑ Tim Grierson, Screen International
"The movie is embarrassingly bad."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Common Sense Media
"This movie is dire, soul-crushing stuff."
‑ Matt Singer, Time Out New York
"Swardson and the gang generally opt for silly over edgy and outrageous, but Bucky is just too dashed-off a character for the movie to get by on that."
‑ Tom Russo, Boston Globe
"God, this guy sucks. Swardson. And Bucky."
‑ Roger Moore, McClatchy-Tribune News Service
‑ Brett Michel, Boston Herald
"I go take seven aspirin for my current headache, I do need to let you know that there's a whole other actually funny movie going on inside this one, struggling to come out."
‑ Dave White, Movies.com
"This isn't even a series of skits, but a series of vague ideas for skits that nobody fleshed out."
‑ Eric D. Snider, Film.com
"This god-awful, unfunny, stinkingly putrid sketch-comic movie has exactly one snicker-worthy moment, involving Kevin Nealon and a stolen grape. But watching the rest of it will make you whine."
‑ Joe Neumaier, New York Daily News
"Putrid and completely unfunny, 'Bucky Larson: Born to Be a Star' is a torturous exercise for a viewer. I can't count the times I wanted to walk out of this ghastly excuse for a movie. Still, I stayed with it. I just couldn't bring myself to leave."
‑ Linda Cook, KWQC-TV (Iowa)
"Nothing to see here, kids."
‑ Kimberley Jones, Austin Chronicle
"Don't put yourself through this train wreck of a movie. Unless of course you enjoy feeling like the screenwriter is hovering at your elbow during the film screaming "GET IT?!" after every joke."
‑ Grae Drake, Movies.com
