Synopsis
In the cutthroat world of children's television, Rainbow Randolph, the corrupt, costumed star of a popular children's TV show, is fired over a bribery scandal and replaced by squeaky-clean Smoochy, a puffy fuscia rhinoceros. As Smoochy catapults to fame - scoring hit ratings and the affections of a jaded network executive Randolph makes the unsuspecting rhino the target of his numerous outrageous attempts to exact revenge and reclaim his status as America's sweetheart.

Critics' reviews
  • "It's good -- no, great -- to see Williams as a mean rat bastard"
  • "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."
  • "There are a few laughs, but I'm not sure that a comedy is supposed to make you recoil, which is what 'Smoochy' does"
  • "A dark comedy that blows up like an exploding cigar, leaving nothing much behind but smoke, noise and a bad taste."
  • "To make a film this awful, you have to have enormous ambition and confidence, and dream big dreams"
  • "Sporadically funny, twisted for sure, it risks becoming as repetitive and shrill as the kinds of programs it satirizes"
