Frank is a slovenly zookeeper. A zookeeper is a worker in a Zoo, responsible for the feeding and daily care of the Animals As part of their routine they clean the exhibits and report health Much to the frustration of his young daughter Shane, he eats and drinks compulsively and has no regard for germs or diseases. Compulsive overeating, also sometimes called food addiction is characterized by a Compulsive relationship to food which is addressed by professionals with either a A disease is an abnormal condition of an organism that impairs bodily functions and can be deadly In the opening scene, Frank consumes an egg that he recovers from the filth and straw of the chimpanzees' enclosure, where it landed after the chimp stole the egg from his hand and Frank pried it from the ape's mouth, much to Shane's disgust and stern protestation. Chimpanzee (often shortened to chimp) is the common name for the two extant Species of Apes in the Genus Pan. Frank cites the "ten second rule" as justification for the blatantly unsanitary act. The five-second rule is a popular Polite fiction regarding the eating of Food that has fallen to the floor or ground
Inside Frank's body, the story unfolds. Osmosis Jones, a former agent of Immunity (Frank's immune system) is a hot-blooded, adventure-seeking white blood cell. Osmosis is the Diffusion of a solvent (frequently water through a semi-permeable membrane, from a solution of low solute concentration (high water potential An immune system is a collection of mechanisms within an Organism that protects against Disease by identifying and killing Pathogens and Tumor He is a rebel cop, rarely doing what his chief--or anyone else--tells him to do. He was relocated to the mouth to fight against germs just entering the body via ingestion following an incident during which he induced Frank to vomit all over Shane's teacher, which was considered a false alarm because he had been the only one to suspect an incoming pathological threat. After several newcomer Germs--believed to be gingivitis--hijack a "squad car" in the mouth, Osmosis Jones and his senior partner, who is piloting their helicopter, are sucked into the lungs by a massive yawn while in pursuit, which was brought on by a lack of sleep for Frank. Gingivitis (" Inflammation of the gums quot ( Gingiva) around the Teeth is a general term for gingival diseases affecting the gingiva Even after the germs evade capture and pass into "Immunity's" jurisdiction, Jones disobeys direct orders and continues the pursuit on foot. Naturally, the end result is not good: the criminals escape and Jones accidentally triggers a major cramp in Frank's leg.
Meanwhile, Mayor Phlegmming is preparing for re-election, campaigning with the promise of more junk food (much to the joy of the citizens in the Love Handle District). Phlegm ( is sticky Fluid secreted by the Mucous membranes of Humans and other Animals. Love Handles is a Canadian Game show which was produced by Blair Murdoch from 1996 - 1998 for Global TV, and hosted by Stu The Mayor's reckless policies are largely responsible for Frank's deteriorating health. Health is a state of complete physical mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity However, his re-election hopes are complicated by the arrival of Thrax, a deadly virus that came in with the egg. Scarlet fever is a disease caused by an Exotoxin released by Streptococcus pyogenes. In an attempt to cover up the severity of the situation, Phlegmming tells Frank to take a cold pill. The pill, Drix (short for Drixenol), arrives in the body and covers Frank's infected throat with a disinfectant to cover the irritation. The human body is the entire physical and mental structure of a Human Organism. Osmosis Jones is assigned as Drix's partner, much to his chagrin. Soon, they unravel Thrax's plot to masquerade as the common cold while at the same time plotting to overheat Frank's body, killing him from the inside. Acute viral nasopharyngitis or acute coryza, usually known as the common cold, is a highly contagious viral Infectious disease of the In Medicine, hyperpyrexia is an excessive and unusual elevation of set Body temperature greater than or equal to 41 Thrax is motivated by a desire to become the nastiest new virus, attempting to kill each new victim faster than the previous. His grandiose plan for Frank is death within 48 hours, breaking previous medical records. Death is the termination of the biological functions that define living Organisms It refers both to a specific
Osmosis and Drix confront Thrax in one of Frank's zits. A pimple is a result of a blockage of the Skin 's Pore. It can be a Pustule or Papule. Drix launches a grenade of medication at Thrax and his cronies, popping the skin blemish, and seemingly ending Thrax's siege. To hide the truth, Phlegmming forces Drix to leave and fires Osmosis, who both insist that Thrax was more than the common cold. Osmosis' prediction rings true as Thrax was able to survive the explosion and decides to launch a singlehanded assault on Frank's hypothalamus by disabling its self-regulative capabilities. The hypothalamus links the Nervous system to the Endocrine system via the Pituitary gland (hypophysis However, soon after does so, Leah Estrogen, the mayor's secretary and Ozzy's love interest throughout the movie, discovers his work and alerts security. Thrax manages to evade them, and taking Leah hostage, escapes from the brain to the mouth to escape Frank before he dies.
Frank is taken to the hospital due to Thrax's attack. Ozzy rescues Leah and fights Thrax directly, where Thrax leaves Frank's mouth. The mouth, buccal cavity, or oral cavity is the first portion of the Alimentary canal that receives food and begins digestion by mechanically breaking up Ozzy is launched out after him by Drix. During this time Frank goes into cardiac arrest. Thrax and Ozzy end up on one of Shane's false eyelashes, which she was wearing atop her natural ones. An eyelash or simply lash is one of the hairs that grow at the edge of the Eyelid. During the struggle, Thrax accidentally knocks Shane's false eyelash into a vessel of alcohol below. Isopropyl alcohol (also isopropanol, iso, isopro, Rubbing alcohol, or the abbreviation IPA) is a common name for Ozzy returns to Frank, while Thrax dissolves in the alcohol. Sterilization (or sterilisation, see spelling differences) refers to any process that effectively kills or eliminates transmissible agents (such as Fungi Just as doctors give up attempting to revive a dead Frank, he is revived when Ozzy makes it back into Frank with the missing hypothalamus chromosone. Ozzy is reinstated into "Immunity" with full privleges, he and Drix (whom he's decided to take as his new partner) are declared heroes and he finally wins Leah's heart.
The end of the movie shows Frank and Shane on a hike and Frank, having survived Thrax's attack, has begun to improve his diet and personal hygiene. Meanwhile, Phlegmming has lost his position as mayor and now has a new job, cleaning the bowels. He accidentally ejects himself from the body via the rectum by touching a button that is amply and obviously marked, "DO NOT TOUCH!". The rectum (from the Latin rectum intestinum, meaning straight intestine) is the final straight portion of the Large intestine in some Mammals
Interlaced with the main plot are several live action sequences that detail Frank's troublesome relationship with Shane. Her mother died at an early age; viewers may speculate that Frank has deteriorated as a result of depression caused by emotional loss, although there is reason to suspect that his wife also led an unhealthy lifestyle which may have caused her death, a note touched on during a conversation between Frank and Shane. In the fields of Psychology and Psychiatry, the terms depression or depressed refer to both expected and pathologically chronic or severe Frank humiliated Shane previously by vomiting on her teacher, Mrs. Boyd, during a science fair, in which he ate another student's oyster experiment; Ozzy, patrolling the stomach at the time, saw a nasty germ that had come along with the swallowed oysters and pressed the "puke" button, spraying Mrs. The common name oyster is used for a number of different groups of Bivalve Mollusks most of which live in marine habitats or Brackish water. Vomiting (also called throwing up, emesis) is the forceful expulsion of the contents of one's Stomach through the Mouth and sometimes the Boyd with bile. The event was put on the front page of the local news, making Frank the town laughingstock. This event was responsible for Osmosis Jones' being transferred to duty in the mouth as a punitive measure to keep him from causing any further trouble.
Osmosis Jones' suspicions have frequently been dismissed by others, though ironically he is usually right on the money, even if he lacks the tact or caution to take care of problems without making a mess of matters. This is evidenced most poignantly by Thrax: "They’re making this too easy. You know, in all the bodies I’ve been in, no one has ever gotten wise to me, and now for the first time an immunity cell has figured out everything, and they don’t believe him!"
Frank attempted to mend matters, but failed. Throughout the film, Shane is ashamed of her father and attempts to reform him. Seeing him facing a terminal virus prompts an epiphany in both of them; Frank begins caring for his body, and Shane develops a renewed sense of daughterly pride in her father. A virus (from the Latin virus meaning Toxin or Poison) is a sub-microscopic infectious agent that is unable
Osmosis Jones went through a troubled time in production. "Development hell" is media-industry Jargon for a Film, Television Screenplay, Computer program, Concept, or The animated sequences, directed by Tom Sito and Piet Kroon, went into production as planned, but acquiring both a director and a star actor for the live-action sequences took some time, until Bill Murray was cast as the main character of Frank, and Peter and Bobby Farrelly stepped in to direct the live action sequences.

Upon its original release, the film lost a considerable amount of money, and was the second-to-last production for Warner Bros. The phrase box office bomb refers to a Film for which the production and Marketing costs greatly exceeded the Revenue retained by the movie ' feature traditional animation department (following The Iron Giant, and followed by Looney Tunes: Back in Action, which both also lost money upon their original releases).

One of the producers on the film's commentary track also adds that it was a number-one selling DVD.
Osmosis Jones is MPAA-rated PG for bodily humor but was originally rated PG-13 for crude language and ribald humor (due to a few suggestive shots in "The Zit" and a scene involving Ozzy and Drix talking to "exercising sperm cells"). The term sperm is derived from the Greek word (σπέρμα sperma (meaning "seed" and refers to the male reproductive cells.
There was very little merchandising for the film.
