As Sheldon runs off the ice to chase Burke Bennett, he is wearing hockey skates. In the theatrical film, it seems like the skates disappear by magic, but the DVD shows him removing the skates in a deleted scene. See more »

I smiled through the whole film (when I wasn't laughing)
I've never seen a Danny De Vito film I didn't like, and Smoochy is no exception. Original and creative at every turn, with great performances from Edward Norton, Robin Williams, Catherine Keener, and everyone else in the cast. I smiled and/or laughed through the whole film. What more can you ask from a bent and twisted comedy, I ask you?
