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.
