Once upon a time, there was a lovely walrus princess who loved with more love than any one walrus should ever have to contain, so she spread it out as much as she could amongst as many as she could, waiting on the ice shelf for her true love, and true love's first kiss.

SO BEGINS the DVD-release of "Sawing off a piece of the Walrus" the finale in the popular trilogy Ruby. This final movie introduces Banjo who breaks the spell of promiscuity which haunts Ruby, ending her cycle of self-abuse and bringing together two disparate goal-oriented creatures wherein they both discover that while failure plagued them individually, together they were able to conquer the Arctic!

Banjo, the slightly retarded but good-natured Sea Otter washes onto the ice shelf after a clam-opening mishap, and wrecks havoc upon the peaceful community of walruses with his affable intentions and his four left feet.

Packed with extras, be the first on your block to enjoy this heartening family film as you revisit your favorite moments over and over again -

  • Banjo trying to crack open a clam by beating it against his head

    • Hilarity ensues when young Banjo continues to beat the clam against his own head even after the entire walrus community proves to him how fruitless it is! What a silly retard!

  • The first time Ruby shows Banjo her tusks

    • Who could ever forget the explosive dawning of comprehension when Ruby shows Banjo her tusks for the very first time as he was in the process of rallying against his very reaction? That silly Banjo!

  • Deleted Scene: "Walrus Envy"; the truth behind pinniped male-reproductive organs

    • When a group of pups whip 'em out for comparison, young Banjo becomes suddenly aware that he's no walrus.

  • Sea Otters are the largest of the weasel family

    • Discover how the slippery otter threatens the most beautiful walrus on the ice shelf, which leads him straight into Ruby's waiting flippers.

  • UNCUT! "My beating walrus-heart"

    • In her most moving performance to date, Ruby sings her famous 'tusk' song to Banjo as he prepares to mount blubber for the very first time (parental discretion advised).

  • Meet the Parents

    • When Ruby dresses up Banjo like a doll to introduce him to her folks, Papa's stiff bristles tingle with trouble while Banjo deals with role reversal.

Walrus love is patient, walrus love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. Walrus love is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, but can be groused about this way and that with a pair of large tusks.

Sea Otter, Sea Otter, candlelight
Doin' the town and doin' it right
In the evening...
Its pretty pleasin'

Walrus Ruby, Sea Otter Banjo
Do the jitterbug out in Sea Otter land
And they shimmy
And Banjo's so skinny

And they whirled and they twirled and they Tango'd
Singin' and jingin' the jango
Floatin' like the Heavens above
Looks like Sea Otter love...

Nibbling on baculum, chewin' on blubber
Banjo says to Ruby "Honey, would you please be my Walrus?"
And she say yes
With her whisker kisses

And now he's ticklin' her tusk
Rubbin' her flippers
Muzzle to muzzle, now anything goes
As they wriggle, and Ruby starts to giggle

Warning - Spoilers

The really great movies never have happy endings. ;-)





I had tears! It has to be the greatest tragic comedy of the year.

Too funny.

I laughed until I cried, despite some inaccuracies in the DVD's blurb, but I attribute that to the need to make it into a family film ("good-natured"? I think not).

Hilarity ensues when young Banjo continues to beat the clam against his own head even after the entire walrus community proves to him how fruitless it is!

When a group of pups whip 'em out for comparison, young Banjo becomes suddenly aware that he's no walrus.

These were my favourite scenes in the production! They deserve cherishing for the joy that they provide.

I'm glad you enjoyed the review! I wish I could share with you my favorite scenes, but they're ALL MY FAVORITE! I love the way the audience gets behind and cheers for Banjo as he oils his way around the ice shelf.

Two versions are being released - the 'Family Friendly' version, and, as indicated above, one which is 'UNCUT!' This is mostly for the graphic nature of the deleted scenes, but in both versions his jealous hate has been re-written as affable ignorance to appeal to a wider audience.

I'm holding out for the director's cut that includes the extended wedding scene.

They ruined that scene in post for the theatrical release.

Ruby and Banjo truly deserve each other. I can't think of a more appropriately-matched couple.

Remember the part in the film where Banjo was fighting canine & claw for the most attractive walrus on the ice shelf all the while fighting just as hard to ignore Ruby? Remember the reaction in the audience when he finally found his way in Ruby's flippers? How they were like two peas in a pod? All that energy focused the wrong direction. I think the director was trying to convey a sense of, you may be an idiot if you can't see that which is directly in front of you and of course the way he pulled that off with the cue of music, the suddenly dim lighting, and his use of pantomime and silhouette right before the deleted scene.

I remember the collective 'gasp' of the audience, though in looking back I don't really know if it was the emotion of the scene or the sudden theatrical break into the full-frontal - I know I was taken aback by the screen being filled with walrus poon - then again, its always easy to armchair direct.

I am scared. I am scared that I get it, I am scared that it was written.

In her most moving performance to date, Ruby sings her famous 'tusk' song to Banjo...

"One day you'll be blubbery and fat, with long strong tusks for grousing at this and that."

the cue of music, the suddenly dim lighting, and his use of pantomime and silhouette

THE DIRECTOR IS A GENIUS!
