I understand that certain kinds of movies appeal to certain kinds of people, and no movie will please everyone. But who thought Bucky Larson was a good idea? Because that person needs to be fired. Trailers are supposed to make you want to see a film, not turn the channel. Those trailers are more annoying than commercials are.
Oh, and about those reviews..
Ranker has a list of the "best" bad reviews, like this from the Times:
...'Bucky Larson: Born to Be a Star' may have been made...to 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.
The guy from BoxOffice.com was wrong in the right direction. It didn't make $3 million this past weekend. It barely made $1.5m.
