Here’s a not-so-fun fact: Back in September 2014, we were one of a dozen critics to argue for Kevin Smith’s stoner horror comedy, Tusk. Justin Long’s horrific transformation from a snotty podcast host to a manmade walrus was enough to give us nightmares with a little awkward laughing in between. This year’s Yoga Hosers? Not so much.
At this year’s Sundance, Film Editor Dominick Suzanne-Mayer wrote that the film “is a riot of tones and visual styles and ideas that never comes together into any kind of cogent whole, all offset by the overwhelming sense that Smith is making movies for himself and his family and friends and couldn’t really give a shit how they play for anybody else….”
Given all the chaos that swept over Park City last January, Dominick wound up being the only one out of the Sundance Three to actually catch the film. However, judging from this new batshit crazy trailer, it would appear that Smith’s second installment of his quirky, confusing, Johnny Depp-starring True North trilogy is, indeed, fucking bonkers.
Watch above. Go and see it July 29th.
