While impressive in its inventiveness, the film in some ways suffers from it.
Chris Hewitt (St. Paul)

Most of the time, it feels like two distinct movies.
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...

There's no story. Or rather, there are two half-stories that don't make up a whole plot between them.

Watch what you buy at the concession stand.

The gross-out equation that permeates much of the film is obviously geared to entertain the youngsters...

Bill Murray is reduced to nothing more than a walking gross-out joke.

It's not nearly as much fun as when the Farrelly brothers are fully in touch with their inner juvenile delinquents
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4

...it's up to the animation to keep us entertained, and those sections turn out to be much too predictable.

Depending on your age and mindset, the ensuing gastrointestinal skirmish will seem either terribly clever or nauseatingly rude, the potty joke to end all potty jokes.

Too crude for the kids and not crude enough for connoisseurs of the Something About Mary school of hair jism and balls caught in zippers, Osmosis Jones seems doomed to fall between the cracks.

Isn't a movie so much as a health-class nutrition lecture.

Plays like Lethal Weapon 4 recast as a Fantastic Voyage Saturday-morning cartoon.

This live-action/ cartoon structure is intended to give Osmosis Jones an edgy kick. But instead it proves to be a boat anchor around the comedy's neck.

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

Paul Clinton (Boxoffice)
Boxoffice Magazine
August 20, 2001
While the animated sequences are the most involving, the real-world scenes thud on the screen.
Dustin Putman

The jokes are about as fresh as moldy bread run over by a dump truck.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4

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