  1. If you're in the mood for razor-sharp satire, this is the most refreshingly outrageous movie of the season.

    It's good -- no, great -- to see Williams as a mean rat bastard.
  3. Resnick has crafted an ambitious, if extremely uneven, character study.

    A broad, braying yuk fest that revels in coarse jokes, lacks the courage of its own cynicism (things keep wavering into sentimentality) and refuses to develop its own premise.
  5. Williams, going full throttle as the desperate deposed kiddie icon Rainbow Ralph, is, well, simply exhausting.
  6. 30
    All noise with very little fun, and almost no restraint.

    It's hard to pinpoint where things go wrong.

    Death to Smoochy is easily one of my favorite movies of all time. Hilarious from start to finish and one heck of a good black comedy. I would highly recommend it. Expand

    If anything was good about this movie, it was the drunken boxer, and the sex scene that we don't see right before the boxer dies.
