When zoo worker Frank Detorri (Bill Murray) contracts the virulent virus Thrax (voice of Laurence Fishburne), inside his body--known as "The City of Frank" to its inhabitants--a white blood cell cop, Osmosis Jones (voice of Chris Rock), and a cold tablet, Drix (voice of David Hyde Pierce), join forces to fight the invading virus intent on taking over "The City." But to bust Thrax, Osmosis Jones must bypass Mayor Phlegmming (voice of William Shatner) and enlist the aid of the Mayor's assistant, Leah (voice of Brandy Norwood). When Osmosis and Thrax clash in the climactic battle of this germ warfare, Frank's life--and the lives of all the citizens of The City of Frank--hang in the balance.

Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: The animated portion of Osmosis is zippy and fun, but the live-action portion is lethargic.

Common Sense Says
Mostly animated PG film has gross-out humor, violence.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Osmosis Jones is a mix of live-action and animation, and is also a mix of puerile humor and cartoonish violence. While the animated sequences are imaginative, and Bill Murray is always entertaining, there is vomiting, pimple popping, snot, and flatulence. One of the main characters in the live-action sequences is always shown smoking a cigar, and in the animated sequences, a male white blood cell talks to a female white blood cell about "hooking up," and the female white blood cell makes a reference to masturbation. Parents should also know that the movie features a child whose mother has died and who is terribly worried about losing her father, who seems bent on suicide by junk food. Some kids will be upset by the way that the child has to assume the role of parent.
