Critics Consensus: A severely misguided and inept comedy incapable of even telling its single joke properly.

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.

Lots of sexual content and language, not enough humor.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this crude porn-industry comedy was co-written by Adam Sandler, who has cast star Nick Swardson in supporting roles in many of his movies. Given the setting, the fact that it's filled with crass sexual innuendo and strong language (including "f--k" and "s--t"), as well as partial nudity (including topless women and a brief shot of a man's "equipment") isn't surprising. But the main character is actually fairly chaste and innocent, and so is his romantic interest. There's a little drinking and drugs, as well as a few violent threats, but the main issues here are sexual content and language.
