Okay, a lot of critics did not like this movie. But who cares? It's hilarious, dark and appeals to the twisted and goofy in all of us. I can't imagine any adult who appreciates satire not enjoying this movie. Edward Norton gives a fantastic comedic performance and looks really pretty in eyeliner. Decide for yourself.

After critics panned this film, I waited until it was out on DVD before I watched it. I will never listen to a critic again. This was an insanely funny film, with some of the best one-liners ever. The Irish mafia (and Spinner) were some of the great highlights of the film! I highly recommend seeing this movie, especially if you like films like "Heathers" - the darker comedies.

After being fired, An Selazy Ex-Host (Oscar-WInner:Robin Williams) of a Popular T.V Kids Show Host tries to plot a Revenge against his Barney-Like replacement (Edward Norton). This guy, who's is ultra sincere doesn't know that his bosses or the people he trusts are corrupted and are exploiting him.
Directed by Danny DeVito (Matilda, Throw Mamma Out of the Train, War of the Roses) made a amusing dark comedy that is not for everyone's taste because of the Vulgarity Subject Matter. Williams is fun in his often crude role. Norton is surprisingly amusing as the mild-mannered folksinger. This was One of the Biggest Box Office Disappointment of 2002 but it's centainly more successful on Video. Do not miss this often darkly hilarious film. Written by Adam Resnick (Lucky Numbers). Grade:A-.

There are a ton of reviews here on this movie, so I won't expound too much on this. This is a funny movie. If you like comedy, you'll enjoy this. I don't know if it classifies as a 'Dark Comedy', because it's not really dark. It reminds me a bit of the nature of Get Shorty. Robin Williams, Danny DeVito, Edward Norton, Jon Stewart -- all perform brilliantly. Robin Williams is a riot. Just buy the movie.

Death to Smoochy (Danny DeVito, 2002)
Death to Smoochy is sick, twisted, wrong in every conceivable way. It's also the meanest, ugliest, and downright funniest comedy I've seen since Being John Malkovich.
While the movie initially got a great deal of bad press, that is slowly being rectified as more people who shied away thanks to negative critical reviews at first are discovering this gem. I should have known better, as I'll watch Ed Norton in anything, but it took even me this long to finally see the thing.
Rainbow Randolph (Robin Williams) is a kids' TV host with a weakness for bribes; he accepts them to get kids on the show. He is arrested immediately after the movie starts, leaving his network with an empty time slot. The show's producers, Mona (Catherine Keener) and Frank (Jon Stewart) need a replacement with integrity. They find it in Sheldon Mopes, aka Smoochy the Rhino (Edward Norton). But you get the inevitable question: what happens when you put someone with a strong sense of ethics and principles into a field as corrupt as television, especially when dealing with the kids' market? Nastiness, and hilarity, ensues. Not only does Randolph want his slot back and is willing to do anything to get it, but the shadowy head of Parade of Hope, Merv Green (Harvey Fierstein), is after Smoochy to do benefit work once the show takes off. All Smoochy wants to do is help the kids understand that organic food is good and step-parents need love, too (and other such things, in a series of songs that are worth the price of admission alone). Excellent supporting roles by DeVito, Vincent Schiavelli, Michael Rispoli, Pam Ferris, and many others make this simply a joy to watch.
I'll warn you now, though, Death to Smoochy seems to inspire love-it-or-hate-it reactions.

Fabulously written and well acted this is the kind of movie the whole family can enjoy while just whiling away a lazy Sunday afternoon .....
I don't know if this was Danny DeVitos directorial debut but certainly this well known actor has managed to capture the crazy world of children's television and their caricature hosts. Certainly Pee Wee herman, and for the more mature among us, Soupy Sales will come to mind ......
In a nutshell, Robin Williams is a very successfull kids show host 'Rainbow Randolph' that get uncermoniously canned the minute they catch him taking bribes from parents wanting kids to get on his super popular show. The network then in a bind quickly hires the antitehisis of Rainbow a super squeaky clean Smootchie played by Edward Norton. This of course is the premise of the show that Ranbow Randolph wants his old job back and he has to kill Smootchie to get it
Robin Williams was absolutely fabulous and I was very happy to see that the director managed to hold him back from just plain domieering any show or movie that Robin appears on. I believe that Edward Norton playing Smootchie was absolutely simply fabulous and funny ....

This hilarious skewering of kids television is refreshing even among dark comedies. Rainbow Randolph (Robin Williams) has lost it all - television show, penthouse, reputation - when his network producer (Catherine Keener) finds Sheldon Mopes (Edward Norton) singing in a homemade costume in a methadone clinic. She brings him aboard KidNet as Smoochy, dresses him up, gives him an elaborate, colorful set, and launches a career. The trouble is, Sheldon is naive, and wants only to teach children about the benefits of organic food, tolerance, and anti-consumerism. And Rainbow Randolph has dedicated his every waking minute to orchestrating his downfall. Throw in Danny DeVito as Smoochy's corrupt, power-hungry agent, a Irish mob protecting a lovable, brain-damaged boxer who loves Smoochy, the head of a children's charity capable of murder, and a string of has-been children's television performers - and you've got a twisted, laugh out loud black comedy that is like nothing else I've seen.
Even Barney-haters will love the clips from Smoochy's show since Sheldon believes so completely in goodness. He really wants to change the world, in his politically correct, strict vegetarian way. When he sings, "Your stepfather is not mean/(chorus of kids) He's just adjusting," it's hilarious. His wholesome image contrasts dramatically with the foul-mouthed, cynical, and even murderous characters around him. Robin Williams turns in an excellent grungy performance as Randolph. Edward Norton is completely believable and lovable as Sheldon/Smoochy, even when the corruption around him begins to affect him. Catherine Keener has just the right mix of hard-nosed corporate greed, cynicism, and the ability to be won over by a good children's song.
