Death to Smoochy is a 2002 black comedy starring Robin Williams, Edward Norton, Danny DeVito, Catherine Keener and Jon Stewart, directed by Danny DeVito. The film tanked at the box office, making back less than twenty percent of its budget and earning Robin Williams a Razzie nomination for Worst Supporting Actor. The film was the second of three "dark" films released by Williams within a space of four months in 2002, between One Hour Photo and Insomnia, though this is easily the most light-hearted of the three.
The following weapons were used in the film Death to Smoochy:
