      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      Tusk is pleasantly ridiculous and charmingly self-deprecating, but that isn't enough to compensate for its thin, overstretched story.

      Dysen P It's weird but ok Rated 3 out of 5 stars 04/19/24 Full Review Wallace H This Is The Greatest Movie Humanity Has Ever Seen, I Love How Silent Joe Directed This , This Has Gotta Be A24s Best Movie of ALL Time Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/30/24 Full Review cj r This beautiful masterpiece was shown to me by my slightly insane roomate as he held me hostage and threatened to turn me into a walrus. This movie nearly brought me to tears due to the beauty of it. I recommend this elegant masterpiece to everyone who wishes to view it. It changed my life and it will change yours too. Become one with the walrus. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/03/24 Full Review Shay C Words cannot express how completely awful that was. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/29/24 Full Review C P For such a silly plotline, this movie was surprisingly good:) Glad we kept watching past the first 15 minutes! 😂 I was disturbed, the film did it's job! Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/26/24 Full Review Megan K Oh, God. It's hard to watch once you get into the thick of it. If you made it through Human Centipede unaffected, this won't be a problem for you…but this movie stayed with me long after seeing it. Trips to the zoo are forever ruined for me.

      Jason Bailey Flavorwire 'Tusk' opens with the sound of two men laughing at their own jokes, so I guess a doff of the cap is due to the filmmaker for encapsulating his movie so efficiently, right from the jump. Jun 18, 2016 Full Review Eric Kohn indieWire Justin Long and Johnny Depp join the "Clerks" director for a weird, unpredictable movie that still feels like only Smith could have made it. Rated: B+ Oct 28, 2015 Full Review Evan Williams The Australian Parts of it are funny, parts are suspenseful and parts of it - to put it mildly - are hideously awful. Horrible may be a better word than horrific. Rated: 2.5/5 Oct 16, 2014 Full Review Trace Thurman Horror Queers Podcast Kevin Smith's second foray into genre territory is a mostly successful tonal mishmash with some of the most grotesque imagery to come out of the 2010s. Rated: 4/5 Feb 23, 2023 Full Review Joe Lipsett Horror Queers Podcast Aside from Johnny Depp's inscrutable "French Canada" accent, Kevin Smith's second horror film is bizarre, unsettling and frequently very funny. Rated: 4/5 Feb 17, 2023 Full Review Brian Eggert Deep Focus Review The material never quite commits itself tonally. Some scenes feel like a grotesque chiller, others play like your usual Smith-brand comedy. When Smith tries to combine these two tones, the unbalanced result is more awkward than enjoyable. Rated: 1.5/4 Jul 29, 2022 Full Review Read all reviews
