Yesterday saw the release of two new international trailers for Adam Sandler’s Jack & Jill, and not too long before that brought the trailer for Bucky Larson: Born to be a Star. I think we’re already all too aware of what Jack & Jill looks like, and expected as much from a movie about Sandler playing his own obnoxious twin sister (RATED ARG FOR PIRATES F*CK YOU!). But having been a long-time Nick Swardson fan, I’d held out hope that Bucky Larson would finally be the film where he got to do more than be the least-terrible part of a Happy Madison film. Sadly, it looks… well, like every other Happy Madison movie (with Sandler listed as co-writer). I hate to judge a book by its cover, but there’s no way in 2011 a movie can be good when the lead character is in Mexican sitcom make-up (he looks like the Mexican television scenes in Arrested Development — all he’s missing is the freckles and lollipop). The only question now is: which of these looks more terrible? Let’s compare!
