  • Nobody said being a movie star would be easy... well, unless you count porn, in which case...

  • just take off your pants, and we'll begin. This is Movie Night!

  • Hello and welcome to Movie Night, YouTube's #1 interactive weekly movie review show - hi,

  • I'm your host Jonathan Paula. Tonight on the program will be talking a look at a couple

  • porn-inspired comedies. The first of which is brand new on home media this week, "Bucky

  • Larson: Born To Be A Star"

  • Released on September 9th to scathing reviews, this raunchy Nick Swardson vehicle performed

  • so abysmally at theaters, it was pulled from its nationwide run just a week after premiering.

  • Even on its very cheap $10-million dollar budget, "Bucky Larson" failed to earn back

  • even 30% of that, making it one of the biggest box-office-bombs of recent memory. With that

  • in mind, I went into this picture fully expecting to despise every minute of it's insulting

  • drivel and lowest-common-dominator writing. Which is why I pleasantly surprised with what

  • this film is actually able to achieve. Far from ground-breaking, or even memorable, it

  • is, at the very least, an earnest and positive film with endearing characters - however clichéd

  • they may be. In his first starring role, Swardson is Bucky Larson - a hillbilly from Iowa who

  • dreams of following in the footsteps of his porn-star parents, and so, he sets out to

  • Hollywood to chase his dream. Bucky is an off-balance character full of quirks and bizarrely

  • distracting buck-teeth and a terrible mop-top - but his foolish optimism and kind-hearted

  • nature is a contagious quality that makes him a protagonist worth cheering for. Playing

  • opposite him is Christina Ricci, in a charmingly cute role who curiously finds something of

  • merit to love in Bucky. Don Johnson, Kevin Nealon and Stephen Doff all contribute with

  • exaggerated performances that manage to grab a few laughs every couple scenes. Strikingly

  • unrealistic at times, it's a wonder Bucky is able walk a straight line, let alone star

  • in his own porno movies... but such is point of this haphazard story of a lovable goofball

  • with an embarrassingly small penis. The story fails to really spark any excitement or consequence,

  • but at this film's center is a love story that effectively saves this 97-minute feature

  • from being a total waste of time. It's innocent enough to be enjoyable, but raunchy enough

  • to limit its audience... resulting in a motion picture that was perhaps better suited as

  • a made-for-cable movie. "Bucky Larson: Born To Be A Star", "Admirably pleasant, if formulaically

  • sophomoric." Now that you've heard my review, let's read some of yours from the YouTube

  • comments.

  • Here's the Rate-O-Matic now to show us our scores for "Bucky Larson: Born To Be A Star"

  • -- a FOUR and a TWO. More evidence that the internet is entirely incapable of nuance,

  • your score seems to represent a cultural knee-jerk reaction, the net result of which was a "Crappy"

  • movie. Taking a look at our newest feature, Factor Facts - I felt this was an enjoyable

  • movie with decent acting, but it suffered from a poor story and drab staying power.

  • I felt it was "Meh". Our second porn-themed movie tonight is "The Girl Next Door",

  • Perhaps owning to its risqué material, this modern-day teen angst dramedy failed to perform

  • well at the box office when it was originally released in 2004. Which is truly unfortunate,

  • because this is a brilliantly made film that far outshines its adult-themed story line.

  • Emile Hirsch stars as an ambitious high school whiz kid and social outcast who falls in love

  • with his porn-star next door neighbor, played delicately by the drop-dead gorgeous Elisha

  • Cuthbert. The first act of this movie is teen-drama at its finest, beautifully capturing all the

  • feelings and details of senior year, while struggling to deal with your first true love.

  • Hirsch and Cuthbert are positively fantastic here, playing off each other with adorable

  • chemistry you can't help but root for. Carefully hesitant, but determined - Hirsch is the breakout

  • performer in this film, playfully instigated into wild behavior from a girl who has finally

  • found a boy who doesn't see her as just an object. -CLIP- Paul Dano and Timothy Olyphant

  • round out the supporting cast - both of whom turn in very memorable performances, especially

  • Olyphant who is a steal-stealer as the smarmy porn-director womanizer. Although this 108-minute

  • film contains a great deal of skin and four-letter-words, it is a far cry from the raunchy-sex comedy

  • it was originally advertised as. Unfortunately, as a result, this may have been the most overlooked

  • and underrated movie of 2004 - one that every high school graduate owes it to themselves

  • to view at least once. Seemingly borrowing elements from 1983's Risky Business, this

  • movie is a nostalgic and mature story that carefully, and adeptly examines these teen

  • experiences in a very intelligent slice-of-life film, one that is passionately directed by

  • Luke Greenfield with a steadfast purpose. From The Who, Queen, David Gray and others

  • that litter the poignant soundtrack that underscore key-scenes, to the crafty and masterful editing

  • - "The Girl Next Door" is an absolute treasure of 21st-century filmmaking. Stumbling it a

  • bit in the middle-act with some more unnecessary plot developments, this story's determination

  • thankfully comes roaring back in the final act, with a tremendously effective twist that

  • puts an applause-worthy exclamation mark on a wonderfully enjoyably motion picture. "The

  • Girl Next Door", a "Beautifully magical portrayal of adolescence". Well, those are my thoughts

  • - now let's read some of yours from the YouTube comments!

  • Back again is the Rate-O-Matic to highlight our scores for "The Girl Next Door"... a NINE

  • and an EIGHT. You enjoyed this film, praising it for it's accuracy, humor, acting, and of

  • course, Elisha Cuthbert - you thought it was GREAT. Meanwhile, I truly loved this film

  • - it was an immensely enjoyable movie with fantastic writing, editing, music, and emotional

  • impact -- but the overly-involved second-act hurt this film's tempo. This film gets a very

  • respectable "Awesome". But that doesn't it for tonight's films... so let's take a look

  • at what's currently playing in theaters with some Tweet Critiques.

  • Remember, if you're going to the movies this weekend make sure to submit your Twitter reviews

  • using the #JPMN hashtag to have it featured on an upcoming episode. Next we'll be taking

  • a look at couple of guy-friendly films, "Abduction" with Taylor Lautner is an intense action-thriller

  • starring everyone's favorite former-Werewolf, and "Real Steel" a rock-'em'sock'em robots-style

  • adventure with Hugh Jackman. As always, I encourage you buy, rent, or download these

  • films - and then let me know what you think about them by voting in the polls below, or

  • by leaving a comment review - and remember, I read them all! Once again, my name is Jonathan

  • Paula - thank you for watching Movie Night, I hope to see you, right back here next Friday!
