  • Osmosis Jones is a 2001 American live-action/animated buddy cop comedy film with animated scenes directed by Tom Sito and Piet Kroon and live-action scenes directed by the Farrelly Brothers. The film centers on Frank Detorre, a slovenly zookeeper; the live-action scenes are set outside Frank's body, while the animated scenes are set inside his body, which is portrayed as a city inhabited by anthropomorphic microorganisms. Street-smart white blood cell cop Osmosis "Ozzy" Jones and stoic cold pill Drix must prevent deadly virus Thrax from killing Frank within forty-eight hours. The film was met with mixed reviews, and earned $14 million against a budget of $70 million. Despite the lack of accolades, it sold well in home media. It also served as the pilot to the Kids' WB television series Ozzy & Drix (2002–04), where Ozzy and Drix get transferred by a mosquito to the body of a teenage boy named Hector Cruz and continue their battle against germs and viruses from there. Osmosis Jones made its Cartoon Network premiere on December 19, 2003, as part of their Friday night programming block Fridays. It aired on the network several more times until 2006, but has not been seen since.
  • It met with mixed reviews, and was a failure at the box office, earning under $14 million against a budget of $70 million. Despite the lack of accolades, the film sold well in home media. It was later adapted a Saturday morning cartoon television show, Ozzy & Drix, which aired on Kids WB from 2002 to 2004.
  • It is set in a fictionalized version of the human body which resembles a large city, where micro-organisms or any being based in organisms are anthropomorphic and centers on Frank Detorre, a slovenly zookeeper. Osmosis Jones, a white blood cell teams up with Drix, a cold pill, against Thrax, a deadly virus, who plans to kill Frank within a matter of hours and other characters living within him. Since the human body is fictionalized as a city in the film, the blood vessels and arteries resemble freeways and highways, the nerve endings and Nervous System resemble power lines and electrical substations, the lymph nodes resemble police stations, the stomach functions as an airport with arrivals, the urinary bladder functions as a cruise ship terminal with departures to leave the body, the bowels resemble a city dump and a harbor, the inner nose resembles a dam, the eyes functions as an amusement park ("See World"), the uvula resembles an observation tower, a zit resembles a nightclub, and the Brain resembles a city hall and a power plant. It met with mixed reviews, but was a failure at the box office, earning under $14 million against a budget of $70 million. Despite the lack of accolades, the film sold well in home media. It was later adapted a Saturday morning cartoon television show, Ozzy & Drix, which aired on Kids WB from 2002 to 2004, albeit being completely animated and more emphasis on Osmosis and Drix's partnership in a different body. Limited merchandise was created due to the film's financial failure.
