Dark laughs penetrate director Danny De Vito's black comedy Death to Smoochy. The film is presented in 1.85:1 anamorphic widescreen and sports a very solid transfer. The colors (lots and lots of them) and black levels are all detailed and well saturated without any imperfections to mar the image. Overall, Warner has done a very nice job with this film's picture. The soundtrack is presented in Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround in English and French. This is a very pleasant 5.1 mix that features a good amount of directional effects and sounds. While the film isn't a heavy action movie, there are some great effects that pop out of both the front and rear speakers. All aspects of this mix are free and clear of any hiss or distortion. Also included on this disc are English, French, and Spanish subtitles. Death to Smoochy sports a fair amount of extra features, starting with a lively commentary track by director Danny De Vito and director of photography Anastas Michos. This is a very informative commentary that features De Vito slathering the cast and crew with praise, as well as stories about the film's production. Ten deleted scenes (with title card explanations) are included that allow the viewer to see what ended up on the editing room floor. "The Magic Cookie Bag" includes five galleries (production, costume, set design, behind-the-scenes photos, etc.) while a reel of bloopers and outtakes shows how funny the cast can be when they flub their lines. Finally, there is a neat behind-the-scenes documentary with tons of footage from the shoot, three trailers for the film, some DVD-ROM content, cast and director highlights, and a pointless "Interactive Ice Show" that allows the viewer to rearrange the angles from that specific scene.

Robin Williams and Edward Norton are brilliant! This is the best of satire! My sides hurt and i havent seen the movie in months! Buy it! Its worth it!
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!
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!
I liked this movie. It was a little strange but it was funny. You should see it.
This movie was WONDERFUL! Its my absolute FAVORITE! I reccomend it to anyone and everyone! and the songs are kinda catchy lol
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.
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!
I HAVE BECOME ADDICTED TO THIS MOVIE. VERY DARK COMEDY THAT WORKS BECAUSE THE CHARACTERS ARE PLAYING IT STRAIGHT. ROBIN WILLIAMS IS FUNNY AS USUAL,BUT IS ABLE TO STAY IN CHARACTER AND EDWARD NORTON IS AN ABSOLUTE TREAT. I'VE LOST TRACK OF HOW MANY TIMES I'VE WATCHED IT & I LAUGH JUST AS HARD EACH TIME.
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.
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.
