Adam Sandler’s box office flop


Adam Sandler’s birthday weekend turned out to be slightly less happy than he expected, after the film Bucky Larson: Born To Be A Star, produced by Sandler’s Happy Madison Productions, completely tanked at the box office on its opening weekend.

The movie, which tells the story of a man who finds out that his parents were porn stars in the 1970s, features Nick Swardson, who already worked with Sandler on Don’t Mess With The Zohan. The film opened with a little under $1.5 million, pretty bad for a movie with a $10 million budget.

To make things worst, the film actually racked up a 0% on Rotten Tomatoes, with no positive reviews. Yikes.

I guess that after our little homage to Happy Madison, the Sandler lovefest is over.
