Surprisingly Good, And Nicely-Filmed Black Comedy
I’m almost embarrassed to say it but I really enjoy this film. I say that because of the humor is sick, mainly the tirades spouted by Robin Williams (especially with kids nearby). Otherwise, this black comedy offers a really wonderful character as the lead good guy: “Smoochy the Rhino,” played well by Edward Norton. How Norton could deliver some of these lines with a straight face is beyond me. He must have required numerous takes. He’s a real hoot in here.
Despite what you might have read from national critics, there are a lot of laughs in this film. I also thought the cinematography was interesting with vivid, fascinating colors and some nice closeup shots. For a comedy, I don’t expect photography to be as good as it is in here. Kudos to the director and cinematographer.
Williams, as the bitter dethroned kiddies TV host, ” ‘Rainbow’ Randolph Smiley,” is, well…..Robin Williams, which means very profane and very funny. I expect that sort of profanity out of him, and he gets away with it here and there because of his great comedic talent, but I hate to hear it from female leads who are supposed to be likable. That’s the case with Catherine Keener, who seems to play a lot of these hard-looking, foul- mouthed women…..although “Smoochy” finally softens her up by the end of this story.
At any rate, you have to appreciate black comedy and this kind of almost-perverse humor, to like this movie. Of acquaintances who have viewed this film, I am the only one who liked it
Brilliant, and dark.
This film starts dark as the children’s TV star Rainbow Randolph is shown taking a bribe to allow a child special status on his show in a sting operation… or rather, dark before that, with the emphasis on the sales of his likeness and candy style “breakfast foods”… or maybe just in the innuendos of the song he sings at the beginning… or dark when we watch a figure being beaten to death at the very opening.
All of the above: less than 5 minutes of screen time. This dark as the grave comedy just keeps getting darker and darker.
WARNING: With the loss of one of the stars by his own hand, this may be too dark for the fans of Mr. Williams. I thought I could take it. I was wrong. Too soon for me, but I will go back again.
It is, however, as brilliant a piece of dark comedy ever made, and with his untimely loss, maybe some that ignored it then will find it now. Brutal, unflinching and bordering on bitter (but never sweet), this is a grand film for all involved. Read the cast names… yes, this one somehow got away from us.
