Danny DeVito steps behind the camera for this darkly funny satire that combines elements of Barney and Friends with the real-life Pee-Wee Herman scandal while recalling the director's previously twisted black comedies Throw Momma From the Train (1987) and The War of the Roses (1989). Robin Williams stars as Randolph Smiley, a popular children's show host known professionally as "Rainbow Randolph." Dismissed from his beloved job when he's caught taking payola, Randolph becomes increasingly mentally unhinged and the target of his delusional revenge fantasies is Sheldon Mopes (Edward Norton), otherwise known as Smoochy, the fuchsia rhino character that has replaced him and soared to national popularity. Randolph soon learns that his ex-girlfriend and network executive Nora Wells (Catherine Keener) is sleeping with Sheldon, so he sets out to kill Smoochy, egged on by an unexpected ally: corporate president Marion Frank Stokes (Jon Stewart), who should be profiting from Smoochy's rise to fame, except for the fact that he and his cronies are unable to control the idealistic Sheldon's on-air agenda. Death to Smoochy (2002) co-stars Harvey Fierstein, Vincent Shiavelli, and Michael Rispoli.

I saw this movie back in March, just before the release, and loved it. It's a great mix of twisted dark comedy and mainstream television. Of course, the best part of all was being part of a Q&A session with Danny DeVito afterwards and getting my picture taken with him!

as much as i love edward norton and robin williams, i have to say that this wasn't that good but it had its moments especially the cookie scene was kinda funny and unexpected. this is the story of a character that would suit norton than williams who is a former host of a kids show and is replaced by a barney like character played by norton that would suit williams. robins was funny and creepy and norton was cute but a bit weird.

This is the worst movie I've ever seen. The characters actually take kids shows seriously. I laughed once or twice at things that weren't even funny. The funniest part was when Robin Williams ran into a brick wall. Don't see it. It's a waste of money and time. THUMBS DOWN!

Horrible, horrible, horrible! This movie was worse than Gigli. I have seen Flobee informercials that are more interesting. The characters are loathsome and the jokes are weak. Do not pay to see this movie. If you have the opportunity to watch it for free, don't!

This has got to be one of the most entertaining film that I have ever seen. Robin Williams'character is so ridiculously derranged and the plot is so twisted and comedic that even Simon from American Idol would be laughing. DAnny DeVito is a genius.

Who would have ever thought from the start of Robin Williams's career up into 2002, that he will star in a movie directed by Danny Devito? As the movie opens Randolph Smiley A.K.A Rainbow Randolph (Robin Williams) is caught taking a bribe from cops pretending to be parents of a child wanting Rainbow to put thier kid on his show. The tv company kidnet decides to replace Rainbow Randolph with a host of clean show. And his replacement is Sheldon Mopes A.K.A Smoochy (Eward Norton). Sheldon hires a man named Burke (Danny Devito) to be his agent but behind Sheldon's back, Burke makes deals including gettings Smoochy his own ice show. Smoochy is a purple rhinoceros. If the genre of this movie is comedy, well it isn't funny.
