IMDB: Tusk (2014) - IMDB
IMDB Rating: 5.4
Rotten Tomatoes Rating: 5.3
The Globe and Mail (Toronto) -
A parable that concerns the monstrous conduct of humans, Tusk is a salute to storytelling, a comic send-up of Canadiana - with awesome references to Degrassi and Duplessis - and a terrorizing vehicle for sharply conceived absurdity.
Despite its ludicrous turns, the movie benefits from the far-fetched events for its sheer willingness to go there, not unlike Smith's goofy, self-deprecating public persona.
The Playlist -
At it's best, Tusk is outlandishly unforgettable.
St. Louis Post-Dispatch -
It has a game cast, it's watchable, fun, sick, sad and has to be seen to be believed.
When podcaster Wallace travels to Canada to interview someone, he winds up meeting a strange man named Howe who has many stories to tell about his past life during his interview. Wallace wakes up the next day finding out Howe isn't the person he thought he was. Howe has plans to surgically and mentally turn Wallace into a walrus.
