Justin Long gets kidnapped by an insane millionaire and turned into a walrus. Just another wrinkle in the mid-career marketing campaigns of one-time indie hotshot filmmaker Kevin Smith (Clerks, Chasing Amy), now searching in all the wrong places for a toehold in the gross-‘em-out movie sweepstakes. The money shot – Long’s insufferable podcaster character sewn into a hideous walrus skin and forced to eat raw fish while blubbering – may be worth the admission price to some, but the plot padding around that spectacle is insulting. Back to the drawing board. Costarring Michael Parks, Haley Joel Osment, Genesis Rodriguez, and the ubiquitous Johnny Depp as an unfunny Canadian. Written and directed by Smith (102 min.).
