Consensus: The talent involved can't save a script that has nowhere to go with its promising premise.

John Powers
L.A. Weekly

A broad, braying yuk fest that revels in coarse jokes ... lacks the courage of its own cynicism ... and refuses to develop its own premise.

I'm sure that some country, maybe France or something, will hail this as a work of genius, because it is so incredibly awful.

Considering that it's meant to be a comedy about a TV children's show, DeVitto's picture is particularly irritating, nasty, and mean-spirited.

A dark comedy that blows up like an exploding cigar, leaving nothing much behind but smoke, noise and a bad taste.

A blacker than black comedy.

[T]his is a movie that ought to have been a lot funnier... Death to Smoochy is a cry likely to be heard by ticketbuyers as well.

Death to Smoochy is often very funny, but what's even more remarkable is the integrity of DeVito's misanthropic vision.

I was happy enough with it through most of it, but are we living in such insecure times that even dark, violent comedies now have to end on an up note?

Robin Williams' manic energy is put to perfect use in this amusing and twisted comedy.

A dark comedy with a rather odd story. Norton and Williams acting and funny roles are the main support that holds up this film from a boring crumble.
