    Overall a mess, but like "The Island of Dr. Moreau" a mess I enjoyed. So many tone shifts it gave me motion sickness and Keener is completely wasted, but Norton has some fine moments and even Williams' manic persona earns some good laughs.

    This black-comic assault on family entertainment is going to set a lot of teeth on edge -- If only his (De Vito's) material were better this time.
  2. Starts out as such a deliciously savage satire of TV kiddie shows that it's a shame it swerves out of control and over the top, sliding into tedium before pulling together for a clever, if protracted, finish.
  3. Williams, going full throttle as the desperate deposed kiddie icon Rainbow Ralph, is, well, simply exhausting.
