When the virus invades Frank's body, renegade white blood cell Osmosis Jones springs into action to hunt down and destroy it. Unfortunately, he's stuck with his partner Drix. Together they race against the biological clock to save Frank from certain death, dodging mucus mud slides, toxic spills, hurricane-force sneezes and things you've got to see to believe.

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Action Adventure Comedy - Due to its animated portions, this comedy will likely hold most appeal for children. However, the witty humor of these sections will be most appreciated by adults, who may be bored by the live- action section--which probably holds more appeal to kids, who will appreciate the slapstick silliness.

Entertainment Weekly   Full Review
Very Good "Osmosis Jones oscillates between streaky black comedy and sanitary instruction (as well as between crude live action and elegant animation) like a patient with a fever, and viewer tolerance may similarly run hot and cold.''

USA TODAY  Full Review
Above Average "The animation sequences — the movie's best moments — hurtle by at breakneck speed, while the live-action portions are a bit sluggish. Adults might remain immune to the process of Osmosis, but younger viewers probably will be receptive to its nervy fun.''

Roger Ebert  Full Review
Good "..is likely to entertain kids, who seem to like jokes about anatomical plumbing. For adults, there is the exuberance of the animation and the energy of the whole movie, which is just plain clever.''

TV Guide Online  Full Review
Average "And while there's no denying that the film's animation is technically impressive and is sometimes quite clever, its inventiveness is frequently at the service of gags so distasteful that gag is the operative word. But that's an adult speaking, and despite a barrage of puns that will whiz over the heads of the average eight-year-old, this film wasn't intended for the enjoyment of adults.''

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Not a well attended kids movie. We were only able to collect 57 moviegoer opinions. The children gave it high ratings, but they tend to do that on all kids movies. Adult opinions are what we try to collect on kids movies, so we can tell you if it's a movie parents will want to stay and see. The poor adult opinions say "Osmosis Jones" is one where you'll definitely want to see another movie while the kids watch this one.


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Frank Detorri (BILL MURRAY) is not a healthy guy. He knows it, his young daughter Shane (ELENA FRANKLIN) and her teacher Mrs. Boyd (MOLLY SHANNON) know it, his buddy Bob (CI IRIS ELLIOTT) knows it — pretty much anyone who looks at Frank knows he's no fitness poster boy. Frank eats junk food, abstains from exercise, and treats his bodv like anything but a temple, particularly since the death of his wife, Shane's mother.

This unhealthy approach to life makes the inside of Frank's body a bacterial battleground that festers until the day he invokes his ten-second rule ("If food hits the ground and you pick it up within ten seconds, you can eat it") on a hard-boiled egg he scoops off the ground at the zoo where he works. As he opens his mouth to ingest the dirty egg we follow right along, traveling down into his swampy insides to discover...The City of Frank: a pulsing, organic living metropolis that is home to an entire society of characters — cops, crooks, government officials, deadbeats, villains, and femme fatales. Frank's got it all, and he's got it bad.

Fortunately for Frank, one of his internal inhabitants is Osmosis Jones (CHRIS ROCK), a young white blood cell and an officer of the FrankPD. Jones sees an opportunity to make good on his troubled past when he senses the stirrings of a fatal illness spreading through Frank — a villainous virus that goes by the name of Thrax (LAURENCE FISHBURNE). But to bust Thrax., Jones will have to bypass Mayor Phlegmming (WILLIAM SHATNER), a fat-cat brain cell who gives the citizens what they want, not necessarily what's good for them — like the upcoming Buffalo Wings Festival trip. "A fat Frank is a happy Frank," is the mayor's motto.

Luckily, the Mayor's assistant, a sassy little red blood cell named Leah (BRANDY NORWOOD), does want what's best for Frank, even if her only hope rests with the bumbling Osmosis Jones. And Jones finds another unlikely ally in the visiting Drix (DAVID HYDE PIERCE), a Drixenol cold tablet with twelve hours of time- released germ-fighting power.

Meanwhile, Frank himself does nothing to help from the outside. He's too busy trying to be there for his daughter as she adjusts to life without Mom, even though he's clearly not feeling so hot. Unaware of the germ warfare being waged inside him, he feverishly plods along until Thrax and Osmosis clash in a deadly battle that brings them to the brink of the outside world, perched precariously on Shane's eyelashes. As the virus brings Frank down, the two worlds — inside and out — collide in a final battle for Frank's life, and for the lives of the citizens of Frank!
