The movie is a take on the classic anti-Barney Humor gag, a genre of humor that mocks the kids' television show Barney. See more »
On Buggy's sniper rifle, you can't really see a laser's line. You just see the dot. You can only see its line if it is in smoke, fog or a thick gas. See more »

Death to Smoochy pushes the envelope of comedy, only to fail because it couldn't find the right audience. This comedy is amazing for its intensity and biting scenes that run side by side with comedy, there are dark scenes, harder dramatic elements not usually seen in regular comedies. Yet, this fun, entertaining, and cerebral comedy has great elements of timing, acting, and directing. Not for children, but the nature of plot (doesn't automatically capture any other audience), this sleeper comedy is a must see, because it breaks out of the mold of funny comedies into a more sophisticated, grown up form of laughter and comedical relief.
