Mopes becomes enraged to learn that Burke signed him up to star in a Smoochy ice show; he feels that the event will exploit children. Burke and Merv Green (Harvey Fierstein), the head the corrupt charity running the ice show, unsuccessfully warn Mopes from backing out of the event. Soon afterward, a disguised Randolph dupes Mopes into doing a Smoochy act at a neo-Nazi rally that is raided by the police. Smoochy is labeled a racist and fired. However, when Randolph accidentally lets it slip to Nora that he framed Smoochy, he is arrested. Smoochy's reputation and show are restored. Smoochy commits to the ice show. He decides that all proceeds will go to the drug rehab clinic he used to work at, which was closed due to lack of funding; the kids will be given free souvenirs and healthful snacks. Burke and Green retaliate by plotting to kill Mopes and hire a new host who will cooperate with their profit skimming. However, Green and his men accidentally kill Spinner in his Moochy costume; they are discovered and killed by Cotter. Meanwhile, Randolph corners Mopes and Nora in their penthouse and threatens to kill them. They talk him down and discover that he's depressed. An empathetic Mopes offers to let Randolph stay in the penthouse until he recovers. Burke and Stokes hire heroin addict Buggy Ding Dong (Vincent Schiavelli), another former host, to assassinate Mopes during his ice show. Buggy steals a backstage pass to get inside. However, Randolph, who has been summoned to the ice show, tackles Buggy just as he tries to shoot Mopes from the rafters. Randolph and Buggy struggle for the sniper rifle, until Buggy falls to his death. After Mopes realizes that Burke and Stokes set him up, he chases after Burke into an alley. He pulls a gun and threatens to kill Burke, but Cotter and her men arrive and persuade him to stop. The movie ends with Smoochy and Rainbow Randolph launching a new show together.

Death to Smoochy
The movie was filmed in Toronto and Hamilton, Ontario, along with New York City. Including Union Station, all of the TV studio scenes were shot at the Toronto Film Studios. The scenes involving ice-skating were filmed at Maple Leaf Gardens in Toronto and were choreographed and performed by Canadian figure skaters.
The film received mixed reviews from critics. One positive example included J. Hoberman of The Village Voice, who wrote that "Death to Smoochy is often very funny, but what's even more remarkable is the integrity of DeVito's misanthropic vision." Though it received a wide release, playing in some 2,164 theaters its opening weekend in the United States, the film was a box office disaster, grossing $4,266,463 its opening weekend, and a mere $8,382,691 overall, with negligible foreign box office receipts. Considering it had a production budget of some $50 million, Death to Smoochy was a financial flop. Danny DeVito begins the DVD audio commentary with the lines "Hello. It's Danny. It's been, um... I guess now a few months since the release of Death to Smoochy, so the mourning period is over." Williams's performance earned him a Razzie Award nomination for Worst Supporting Actor.

.although not immediately a fan: 55 “ "At that age I did not like her work." ” Hayek was so set on acting the role that she sought out Dolores Olmedo Patino. Filming Filming took place from April 7 through June 2001 and was shot entirely in Mexico. Some pieces were purchased from street vendors in Mexico City. but Speed joined Hardin in advocating the project. crew members stretched a canvas across a scaffold placed in front of the painter's actual artwork. 2001 on what was to become simply titled Frida.

Valdez was contacted early on by the .. and (after his death) administrator to the rights of Frida and Rivera's art. who sent "her [promo] reel to the director and phoned his office". and Puebla's historic centre. By 1993 Valdez had retitled the film The Two Fridas with San Giacomo and Ofelia Medina both playing the portraitist. I heard the exact opposite--that there were too many Frida projects in development. the two took the project from HBO to Trimark and producer Jay Polstein (with assistant Darlene Caamaño). longtime-lover of Diego Rivera. and began to assemble a supporting cast. but his death further delayed the movie. Raúl Juliá was cast as Diego Rivera.. The optical "illusion" of a work in progress was achieved through the canvas "flattened" by a camera shooting from a distance and therefore "blending" the edges into the fixed mural.. The Two Fridas. which Rivera had "willed.then unknown in the US . and left the then-titled Frida and Diego in August 1992 citing finances. however. Some people see only pain. Salma Hayek became interested in the role. director Luis Valdez began production on a New Line feature about Frida Kahlo starring Laura San Giacomo in the lead. hopeful that Brian Gibson (director of "What's Love Got to Do With It. and with "rising young development executive and producer" Lizz Speed (a former assistant to Sherry Lansing) intended to make a TVM.Frida In the spring of 1991.

But something intrigued me. there was no interest because nobody had heard of Frida. approaching Alfred Molina for the role of Rivera in 1998. and Hayek approached Harvey Weinstein and Miramax. Other on location sites include Rivera and Kahlo's Juan O'Gorman-designed San Ángel studio house and the San Idelfonso National Preparatory School. This "makeshift 'mural'" included sketched outlines and painted portions. Salma Hayek personally secured access to Kahlo's paintings from her. At Trimark. Xochimilco. There was a lot of passion and depth. Hardin approached HBO. the more I started to appreciate her work. and the more I learned. She was a fighter. bequeath[ing] the trust to Olmedo. Hardin's project found itself swamped by similar ones: "When I first tried to sell the project. .. it was Hayek and Miramax who began production in Spring. "She turned up backstage [of the Broadway play Art] rather sheepishly and asked if I would like to play Diego". I think what draws me to her is what Diego saw in her. Julie Taymor came onto the project as Director. Meanwhile. When producer Polstein left Trimark. the story of Tina Turner" and The Josephine Baker Story) would direct. Among the on location places shot were three UNESCO world heritage sites: Teotihuacan.

I found it ugly and grotesque. by then being produced by American Zoetrope. in August 2000 it was announced that Jennifer Lopez would star in Valdez's take on the story. For scenes depicting Diego completing a mural. but I also see irony and humor. like the accident or Diego's infidelities. Salma Hayek wore over fifty costumes as Frida. San Giacomo's casting was objected due to her non-Hispanic ethnicity. Nonetheless. having "been fascinated by Kahlo's work from the time she was 13 or 14" . But  she wasn't crushed by anything. Replicas of the Casa Azul (Kahlo's Coyoacán house) and the RCA Building's lobby were built at Churubusco Studios in Mexico City and shot in Stage 4 there. but was ultimately told she was then too young for the role.Salma Hayek.
