Man you been a naughty boy, you let your face grow long

Shock pod-caster Wallace (Justin Long) not to be confused with Walrus, has a bad day when he encounters Howard Howe (Michael Parks) who lives a life inspired by Hemingway, Coleridge, Kathy Bates, and Centipede. There are a number of humorous scenes that worked and some of the humor grew tiresome such as the poorly scripted Guy Lapointe (Johnny Depp) character. The flashback scenes attempted to create a story that had meaning, but fell short. At times, the film's sole purpose appears to be to make fun of Canadians, picking up where "Canadian Bacon" left off. While I loved the smart "torn between Devils and Kings" line, the Lapointe character drove the satire into the ground.

Cult Movie.

Guide: F-bomb. Sex. No nudity. Male walrus bone. No Trojan marching band.

Odd, grotesque, unnecessary weirdness

What. The. Hell? That pretty much sums up 'Tusk'. It's basically a "trapped with someone evil" horror movie, with some Kevin Smith humour thrown in here and there. Sure, there's some laughs, but they're mostly incredulous. Now, I'm a pretty big fan of Smith's and I used to listen to SModCast (but haven't heard the one this was based on) and I've seen all his films and stand-up DVDs. But even still, this has to be the worst thing he's done. I admire him for taking a risk and doing something unexpected, but 'Red State' was at least new, exciting and inventive. 'Tusk', not so much.

Before this turns into a total bagging, let me point out some of the pros - the score is great, the use of Fleetwood Mac's 'Tusk' ("don't say that you love me!") is pretty great and fitting in its scene and some of the language and nuances that Parks uses are fantastic. Depp is also pretty funny as the unrecognisable (thanks to a fake nose and, I think, contacts) detective.

But it's just hard to ignore the total and complete nonsensicalness. Why is it set in Winnipeg, Canada, but filmed in North Carolina, USA? Why would Parks leave the phone lying around for Long to find? How is Parks supposed to be 90+ when he's only 74? Why do we need to see Joel Osment & Rodriguez pretty much talking to the camera when Long's not there, adding nothing to the story? Why does Parks do what he does? There's no real motivation there. Why does none of the plot make sense? Why do we need over half of the movie being exposition before anything happens? All I'll say is, see it if you're curious, but be prepared to be grossed out and simultaneously underwhelmed.

I love it!!

If you love psychopathic, crazy, weird As movie, you'll Love this one. It doesn't make any sense in it's own weird way. Its really worth watching, and you'll get a wt- sensation the whole movie trough. It's entertaining from start till end, and disgusting, yucky - in a good way.

I don't know, but I'm left with a weird feeling
