If this is the first time that you have heard of Tusk then quite simply, you will almost certainly hate it. Even if you know of Tusk, comprehend what the Great North trilogy represents and understand not only what a Smodcast is but have been known to partake in one, you may still hate this movie. But, if you can see it in a room full of those who speak Smod, a cinema of Kevin Smith fans, then you may just have a hugely funny time.

An utterly bizarre, weirdly compelling story of manimal love that stakes out its own brazen path somewhere between “The Fly” and “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre.”

Both overindulgent and the writer-director's most fascinatingly strange movie to date.

You can imagine Mr. Smith and his collaborators rolling in the aisles at their own preposterousness. If you can find your inner 16-year-old, you might just join them.

Even for a fairly low-budget movie, Tusk doesn’t feel thought-through, or focused enough.

This tonal mishmash is a misfire of literally gross proportions.
