Watch Bucky Larson: Born to Be a Star

"There Are No Small Actors. Just Small Parts."

Bucky Larson tells the story of a beaver-tooth loser (Nick Swardson) whose stuck in a small mid-western town. He fails at his job in a grocery store, he fails at high school because his town's too small to have one, and he even fails at talking, thanks to his ridiculous accent. Hope arrives when he discovers that his parents were both in the skin-flick business, although they were the flabby, hairy sort of people who got such gigs in the '70s. Bucky becomes determined to make a name for himself on the big screen.

His budding career seems doomed thanks to his clueless way of handling auditions, but he gets a lucky break when a sympathetic director steers him to the right people. Bucky soon gets noticed, but not in way that anyone would be proud of. A desperate director (Don Johnson) sees potential in the clownish newcomer and agrees to audition him. It turns out that he has a very embarrassing physical attribute, and things get even more outrageous when his female counterpart takes off her shirt. Bucky leaves the studio after making a fool out of himself, and if it weren't for the friendship of a kind-hearted waitress named Kathy (Christina Ricci), he'd be completely lost in the big city.

However, fate intervenes when footage of Bucky appears on the Internet. It's an instant hit and earns him another chance. He realizes his dream of becoming a porn star, albeit a very unconventional one. His weird appeal wins him all sorts of industry awards at a show hosted by Pauly Shore, who plays himself. Things are going very well for Bucky until he draws the ire of Dick Shadow (Stephen Dorff). He used to be the biggest name in the business, and he doesn't take kindly to being upstaged by a goofy rookie. Can Bucky, with Kathy's help, overcome Dick's attempts at sabotage?
