Mostly animated PG film has gross-out humor, violence.

I enjoyed it. It's a fun, dumb and gross comedy that kids will love.

Time Out
January 26, 2006
The plot's so much old rote, and the characters have all the personality of protoplasm; but the anthropomorphising of this microcosmic metropolis is wonderfully imaginative, and the dialogue decidedly spiffy.

You'll probably find yourself laughing at Bill Murray farting. I did.

It is funny, original, and even contains a genuine, good-natured theme.

...the whole thing eventually becomes bogged down in its own plot.

The ideas are there, hints of genius, but no one ignites them.

I'd advise attendees of this film to go on an empty stomach, but if you're willing to endure the Farrellys' warped sense of humor and Murray's scratching, squirting, gas-passing antics, Osmosis Jones offers some lighthearted fun.

The over-riding question with all comedies is 'Are there many laughs in it?' Luckily, the answer is yes - there are lots of great jokes, and not all of the scatological kind.

The design of this colorful interior metropolis is both clever and biologically correct.

The animated scenes directed by Piet Kroon and Tom Sito occupy most of the running time and are an imaginative and eyecatching tour of the human body.

Deserves all the praise showered upon the overrated Shrek.

Leave it to the Farrelly brothers to once again gross us out.

Shadows on the Wall

The script has just enough clever jokes to keep us chuckling, even if it never scales the heights of classic comedy.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

Movie Metropolis

...it's up to the animation to keep us entertained, and those sections turn out to be much too predictable.
| Original Score: 5/10
November 25, 2001
This is the kind of premise you'd expect to be filmed as a five-minute educational video, if at all. But this feature is 95 minutes and never drags.
| Original Score: 3/4

While it's certainly not among the best movies of the year, Osmosis Jones is not a film that deserved to end up $60 million dollars in the hole.
Full Review | Original Score: 7/10

It's entertaining stuff, and the unintentional topicality adds spice.
Garth Franklin
Dark Horizons

If there wasn't any live action and the animation bit had been fleshed out more then this could've been a highlight of the season...

An enjoyable, if vastly underachieving, diversion.
