Bucky Larson: Born to be a Star

I hate titles like this regardless of the quality of the film.  Anchorman: the Legend of Ron Burgandy, Talladega Nights: the Ballad of Ricky Bobby, Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story.    I know the titles are supposed to by funny, tongue-in-cheek, cute, feign seriousness... but they sound so dumb.

Speaking of dumb, the wife rented Just Go With It (Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston).  Nick Swardson (Bucky Larson) was in it.  Funnily enough, he plays a guy who had penile implants. So, in keeping with the theme...  I guess Adam Sandler is making Nick the next Rob Schneider?  So is this Nick Swardson's Duece Bigalow:  Male Gigolo?  This movie looks as dumb as that David Spade movie, Dickie Roberts: Former Child Star. 

I stared blankly at the trailer and didn't even crack a smile.  Don Johnson looked cool.  My favourite Don Johnson movie is A Boy and His Dog, a post-apocalyptic comedy.  Christina Ricci has come a long way with some interesting roles since The Addams Family.  And, she was a voice in a video game, The Legend of Spyro: Dawn of the Dragon...

The only positive thing I can say about the trailer is that the story seems to be somewhat original.  Somewhat original isn't enough for me to want to see it.

In the words of the travel agent character from Little Britain....

"Computah says.... Noooo."  Ack.
