Death to Smoochy Reviews
To start off he has Rainbow Rudolph out for revenge and trying to set him up to get his old-time slot. He also must handle the mob threatening to do events so they can skim off the top, the pressures of the industry, and even assassination attempts. He seems to have more enemies than friends and only his boss Nora Wells (Catherine Keener) seems to support him.
Death to Smoochy is a black comedy that will appease some fans. The contrast of goofy kids costumes in contrast with murder, schemes and criminals make for a decent combination. This concept is what clearly hopes to drive much of the film's comedic output. I found myself laughing when one of the wrong rhinos is mistakenly killed. The performances of Williams and Norton are good, and Devito himself plays his typical nefarious character. Keener is an excellent addition, but the movie although the movie has some moments, but I did not particularly enjoy the movie overall.
