The sailor of legend is framed by the goddess Eris for the theft of the Book of Peace, and must travel to her realm at the end of the world to retrieve it and save the life of his childhood friend Prince Proteus.
Frank Detorre is a slovenly zoo keeper, and simple father to the only young and bright girl named Shane, who catches a cold right after he swallowed a germ-ridden egg! The inside of his body is known as the "City of Frank". An unlikely hero of a policeman white blood cell, by the name of Osmosis Jones, works as a member of Immunity cell. But with that germ-ridden egg comes a mortal danger: Osmosis discovers Frank has really contracted a villainous and black-hearted deadly virus known as Thrax who arrives and is plotting to ultimately overheat Frank's body, killing him from the inside out! Thrax is motivated by trying to become the nastiest new virus, attempting to kill each new victim faster than the previous. His grandiose plan for Frank is death in 48 hours, breaking previous medical records! Meanwhile the pill that Frank took, Drix arrives in the body and covers Frank's throat with ice to cover the irritation. Osmosis Jones becomes his newest partner.

Chris Rock's first time voice acting in a theatrically released animated film. Later he'd go onto voice Marty the Zebra in the Madagascar films and Mooseblood the Mosquito in Bee Movie (2007). See more »
When Shane decides not to go to Buffalo with Frank, we see the ticker above his door showing the scores of various sports games. The item "Seattle: 5 Oakland: 4" scrolls onto the screen in two consecutive shots. See more »

The DVD release contains three extended (and half-animated) scenes, all of which appear in cut-down form in the final edit:
Drix and Jones visit the eyes, while Drix complains that he has to visit the nose and the throat. Jones gets donuts and calls the infodesk on his cell phone while at the eyes.
Frank picks his nose during the dam-bursting sequence, and Jones saves Drix from ending up on Frank's fingertip. In the end, they're snorted back up into the sinuses.
The race to catch Thrax on his way to the uvula is extended; we see Thrax leap from his car and glide away. Then, after Jones takes the wrong turn, he takes a "shortcut" to the uvula by way of the esophogus, riding a massive acidic Frank-belch up the throat.
Osmosis Jones is a comedy of human proportions, I guess. It works enough and when it works well it's a good movie. Although when you think about it the plot-line inside Frank's body (frank is played by Bill Murray with no shame in great form) is rather routine and for me was the only thing keeping this from being really good.
Still, it might be a worthwhile movie, more for kids than adults, but it it watchable for all. Various voices include Chris Rock, Brandy Norwood, Laurence Fishburne, David Hyde Pierce and William Shatner. Pleasant most of the way and sometimes cool. B
