By now, we all know comedian Nick Swardson’s latest attempt at motion picture success — Bucky Larson: Born To Be A Star — has been met with nothing but abysmal reviews. The go-to online movie rating site Rotten Tomatoes has the flick listed at 0 percent on its “tomatometer,” an unheard of feat for even the worst movies rated by the website. And now, one of the movie’s minor cast members, comedian Joey “Coco” Diaz, has gone on record about the less-than-stellar production. In an interview with his hometown newspaper, the Hudson Reporter in New Jersey, Diaz told the writer, “I was [also] in the worst movie of all time, ‘Bucky Larson: Born to be a Star.”
Wow. It’s great to be honest and confident, Joey. But I’d have to imagine this is going to severely limit your chances of ever working with Adam Sandler’s production team again. And last I checked, this bomb of Sandler’s is one in a huge list of other projects that have made a shit-ton of money.
One of those movies was 2005’s remake of The Longest Yard, in which Diaz had a part. So maybe Diaz and Sandler have an understanding? Diaz is allowed to poop on Adam’s movies and Diaz still gets jobs? We’ll have to see. Though it looks like Diaz is already in the dog house: you can see Diaz in the currently-on-DVD family movie The Dog Who Saved Halloween and the upcoming movie My Dog’s Christmas Miracle, another all-ages story, out Dec 1.
