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.

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.

Of course, Bucky Larson isn't one of the year's worst films because its laughs are poisoned and problematic-rather, it's one of the year's worst films because there aren't any laughs at all.

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.

The entire premise feels about 35 to 40 years out of date, and while the porn business is a supremely easy target for comedy, this movie doesn't have any idea of what might be funny about it, besides perhaps "tee-hee - boobies."

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

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.

Childish.

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.

Wanders around in the general vicinity of a joke idea without ever approaching anything like a punchline.

This isn't even a series of skits, but a series of vague ideas for skits that nobody fleshed out.

This is the Tom Brady who made The Hot Chick and The Comebacks, not the Tom Brady who plays football, although who's to say which of them is better at making movies?

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.

After sitting through this dreadful, monumentally humorless picture, I wouldn't be surprised to learn that this is going to be the last Nick Swardson starring role.

The movie is embarrassingly bad.

I would describe it as giving new meaning to the word "slapdash" except for my suspicion that no one involved has any idea of the old meaning of the word.

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

If you took this script to any sane film producer, they would assume you were pulling a prank. When you told them the shockingly untalented Nick Swardson was attached as the lead, they'd call security.
