  1. If you're in the mood for razor-sharp satire, this is the most refreshingly outrageous movie of the season.
  2. The spectacle is nothing short of refreshing.

    It's good -- no, great -- to see Williams as a mean rat bastard.
  5. 63
    In general, parodies may not rely overmuch on plot, but they need more in this department than Death to Smoochy possesses.
  6. Plays like a long TV sketch, but with an array of characters, themes, subplots and situations just clever enough to keep it moving, and to give cover to its underlying cynicism.
