Culver City, CA (10/31/11) – A small town guy tries to make it big in Hollywood in the hilarious and raunchy new comedy BUCKY LARSON: BORN TO BE A STAR, rising on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital, January 17, 2012, from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. BUCKY LARSON: BORN TO BE A STAR, stars breakout comedian Nick Swardson (Just Go With It, 30 Minutes or Less) as “Bucky Larson,” a buck-toothed mid-westerner hoping to break into the adult film industry – despite certain shortcomings. Co-starring Christina Ricci (TV’s “Pan Am,” Black Snake Moan) with Don Johnson (TV’s “Eastbound & Down,” Machete) and Stephen Dorff (Somewhere, Public Enemies), BUCKY LARSON: BORN TO BE A STAR is packed with laugh-out loud laughs and shocking moments that must be seen to believe on Blu-ray and DVD!
In addition, the Blu-ray and DVD come fluffed with hours of amusing bonus features, including the making of featurettes “Behind The Teeth,” “Gary: Tough Customer,” and “Bucky Sparkles” and “Laugher is Contagious.”
BUCKY LARSON: BORN TO BE A STAR will be priced to own at $35.99 SRP (BD) and $30.99 SRP (DVD). Pricing and bonus features on Digital editions may vary by service provider.
Bucky (Swardson) is a small town grocery bagger, going nowhere in life – until he discovers that his conservative parents were once adult film stars! Armed with the belief that he has found his destiny, Bucky packs up and heads out to LA, hoping to follow in his parents’ footsteps.
BUCKY LARSON: BORN TO BE A STAR was directed by Tom Brady (The Comebacks, The Hot Chick) and co-written by Adam Sandler (Grown Ups, You Don’t Mess With the Zohan) & Allen Covert (The Benchwarmers, Grandma’s Boy) & Nick Swardson (The Benchwarmers, Grandma’s Boy).
