Movie reviews for 'Bucky Larson: Born to Be a Star' are bad. That, of course, is a massive understatement. How bad? 'Bucky Larson's Rotten Tomatoes score is a whopping 0%. Yes, a goose egg. And not only that, the film is so craptastical that at least one well-known reviewer, A.O. Scott of 'The New York Times,' says that 'Bucky Larson' "may be the worst movie Pauly Shore has ever been in." Seriously people, that includes 'Son In Law.' Check out these hilariously negative 'Bucky Larson' reviews: Chances are, you'll laugh much harder at the reviews of the movie, than the actual movie itself.

'Bucky Larson: Born to Be a Star' might be leading the pack among potential 2011 Razzie nominees this year, but it isn't the only movie to get raked over the proverbial coals this year. Bucky has some stiff competition from 'The Smurfs' and 'Zookeeper.' Who will win the coveted crown of Worst Movie of 2011? At the moment, it seems the edge goes to 'Bucky Larson.' If you need to get the bad taste out of your mouth from this horrible movie see the 'Horrible Bosses' quotes or these 'Goodfellas' quotes.

Scott Nash, Three Movie Buffs

The worst Saturday Night Live sketch movie ever made that was never actually a Saturday Night Live sketch.

You know that uncomfortable feeling you get when 'SNL' suddenly gets totally not funny? Think about feeling that for 1 hour and 36 minutes. Scott Nash of Three Movie Buffs sums things up nicely in his review, adding that 'Bucky Larson' "ranks right up there with the 'Stuart Smalley' and 'It's Pat' movies - but "a billion times worse."

...'Bucky Larson: Born to Be a Star' may have been console every actor who has ever been in a movie that is a little less bad than this one. Let me put the matter another way: this may be the worst movie Pauly Shore has ever been in. Think about that. If you dare, go on Netflix and test the hypothesis.

Critic A.O. Scott is not kidding with this hysterically funny, horrible review. I checked Netflix. This includes 'Encino Man' and my personal choice for worst movie ever: 'Son In Law.' 'Bucky Larson' stinks. Period.

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.

Critic Joe Neumaier's review of 'Bucky Larson' also notes that, "There are movie atrocities, there are I-just-don't-get-it comedies and then there's 'Bucky Larson: Born to Be a Star.'

Apparently this one's in a class all by itself.

With his pageboy haircut, ''Gee, golly'' Midwestern accent, and two protruding Chiclets for front teeth, Bucky Larson is a one-note joke played over and over and over.

'Entertainment Weekly' movie critic Keith Staskiewicz gives 'Bucky Larson' a 'D' in his review, making me wonder: Exactly how bad does a movie have to be to earn an 'F'?

Bill Gibron,

Bucky Larson: Born to Be a Star is swill. It's junk. To call it garbage would be an affront to landfills everywhere.

Really, Bill Gibron of could just stick with "swill" in his review and say all he needs to say. But fortunately for us, he doesn't. Gibron also writes:

This has to be a con, a ruse, a hateful hoodwinking by people who should have known better...and if they don't, should be institutionalized for their lack of cinematic scruples.

'Bucky Larson' isn't a fun, goofy, 'bad' movie. It's just a terrible film. Big, big difference...

You may or may not laugh, but at least you'll be closer to death and no better for it.

In other words, critic Rob Humanick suggests in his review that there are a myriad of better things you could do with your time, instead of seeing 'Bucky Larson.' Like watching 'Son In Law?'

About as funny as the typical scribbling on a public bathroom stall.

'The Hollywood Reporter' movie critic Frank Scheck also points out another red flag for 'Bucky Larson' in his review, noting that, "It’s telling when Adam Sandler produces a movie but doesn’t cast himself in the leading role."

Unfortunately, Sandler did cast Nick Swardson and Christina Ricci in this one. Ms. Ricci, you disappoint me.

An inept, lazy R-rated movie whose sole purpose is as a glossary of euphemisms for genitalia and sexual acts.

Given that this is a movie about a dim-witted guy from Iowa who sets off to become a porn star in Hollywood, despite being "ill equipped" for the job, is Robert Abele's 'Bucky Larson' review surprising? No. No, it isn't.
