Did You Know?


In Guy LaPointe's first scene, he crushes the burger he's eating into a thin patty. This is a reference to Dic Ann's Hamburgers, a popular chain of restaurants in Montreal known for its exceptionally thin hamburgers eaten with popsicle sticks. See more »


Lapointe mentions that he requires his "Double double, with eight sugars." A "double double" is a common way of ordering coffee in Tim Hortons (a very popular coffee chain in Canada) and refers to wanting your coffee with two creams and two sugars. The addition of "eight sugars" therefor makes no sense. See more »

I Wish I Could Unsee This Film...
29 January 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

There are few films that I dislike to such an extent where I would actually pay a considerable price for a crazy scientist to lobotomise the part of my brain which remembers it. Tusk is one.

But in the interest of being 'fair' I'll begin with the positives. Sorry, positive. The acting, in majority, is OK. (Johnny Depp, I presume, can only have agreed to partake as a joke or because he actually doesn't care about his reputation anymore).

Right, now the pleasantries are to one side I can continue. So think of Human Centipede. Gross right? Crass? Tusk is a whole new level of vile. Don't believe the tempting notion that this is based on a true story, supposedly Kevin Smith and his mate where discussing a Gumtree add which advertised free living if the lodger agreed to dress as a walrus...

The thing that irritated me the most about this film, aside from the insanely non-funny comedic elements and special effects that look as though the production company allowed the intern free-rein of the art room, is the ending. I won't ruin it, anyone who sits through the entirety of the film without throwing up or crying or trying to scratch their eyes out will need to see it in order to confirm how ridiculous and awful it really is (honestly).

All in all I'm not sure whether I really 'get' what this film is meant to represent. And by this I simply mean that maybe I'm not weird enough to appreciate it.
