Back to The 18 Worst Wide-Release Opening Weekends of 2011
: $1,415,023 on 1,500 screens (per-screen: $943)
In the end, Bucky Larson wasn't born to be a star; it was born to be the worst wide release of 2011. The film earned just $2.5 million in its 14 days of release, including its 15th place showing on opening weekend. Not that star Nick Swardson minds. "It's a lot of work and a lot of reviewers aren't going into that movie to like it," he told SplitSider
. "They don't want to like it. None of those reviewers was psyched to see 'Bucky Larson' and laugh. They go in with the mentality, f-ck these guys for making another movie. They go in there to kind of headhunt. It makes me laugh because it's just so embarrassing. It makes them look like such morons. You can't review 'Avatar' then review 'Bucky Larson.' Comedy is so subjective, you know what I mean? To sit there and technically pick it apart is so stupid. We've never made movies for critics, so we could give a f-ck." Neither did audiences.
