With his pageboy haircut, ''Gee, golly'' Midwestern accent, and two protruding Chiclets for front teeth, Bucky Larson is a one-note joke played over and over and over. Like a bad movie adaptation of a recurring Saturday Night Live character that never existed, Bucky Larson: Born to Be a Star has Nick Swardson's naïve Iowan move to Los Angeles in order to break into the adult-film industry despite possessing a microscopically small penis. If you snickered just now when you read ''penis,'' then this is probably the movie for you. But if you managed to get all of that out of your system in middle school health class, then the endless unfunny sex gags offered by the script (written by Swardson, Adam Sandler, and Allen Covert, probably over the course of a single giggly weekend) will leave you cold. A better-deserving Christina Ricci plays Larson's doe-eyed love interest, and Don Johnson is amusing in the Burt Reynolds-in-Boogie-Nights role of a sleazy, pill-popping director. They are bright spots in a movie that's otherwise pretty hard to watch. Heh-heh, ''hard.'' D
