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.

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. …
