Well casted flick that probably pokes fun at Barney (look at the color of Smoochy). Anyways, its screenplay was fresh but could have improved in other elements. Nothing worth remembering, but it wasn't dull either. Death to Smoochy is a dark comedy that tries to be funny and dark, but lacks the aforementioned traits.

A black comedy that should've been funnier. Though, not without it's moments.

As a dark comedy, this movie is second to none. Great!!! Absolutely fantastic! When you take the world of children's charities, children's entertainment, and mix it all in with a crime story then what you have is one of the funniest films of 2002! Edward Norton, Catherine Keener, Danny DeVito, Robin Williams, and Harvey Fierstein all do impeccably well. A must-see dark comedy of the likes that I would love to be able to write!

I thought death to smoochy was an awesome movie. It tanked in the box office only making about 10 million dollars compared to its 55 million dollar budget. But it explored a part of our american culture (the childrens show) and exposed it for most likely what it really is. Rainbow Randolph is a huge pervert and on top of that he accepts bribes from parents who want their children on the show. He is eventually caught doing this and is kicked off the air. Steve from blues clues was a heroin addict so this most likely isn't that far off. Plus it is drop dead funny from start to finish.

Williams vs Pink Rhino

This movie was hated by critics and bombed at the box office, but I actually liked this movie, It's my biggest guilty pleasures of all time.

The story is about a puffy fuscia rhinoceros. As Smoochy catapults to fame - scoring hit ratings and the affections of a jaded network executive Randolph makes the unsuspecting rhino the target of his numerous outrageous attempts to exact revenge and reclaim his status as America's sweetheart.

The good things about this movie: The movie is a dark comedy and to me that worked, because when you got a story about Robin Williams trying to kill or ruin a kid friendly pink rhino called Smoochy, you really can't take that seriously and the movie is aware of that and takes it like a joke. Edward Norton and Robin Williams both did great in this movie. ...
