Osmosis Jones

Trivia: In the line to the bladder, when Jones is trying to stop Drix from leaving, you see one of the creatures holding Pikachu from Pokémon (when Jones says "get your time-release butt off this boat"). At the time of the film, 2001, the Pokémon TV series was airing on Kids' WB and WB was the distributor of "Osmosis Jones."

Trivia: Thrax is like Morpheous from the Matrix trilogy. His black coat, black glasses and he is even voiced by Laurence Fishburne. In his end fight with Osmosis there is a very clear Matrix reference (the bullettime effect).

Trivia: In the widely released version of Osmosis Jones in the background of the opening chase scene, a remix of Foreigner's 'Hot Blooded' plays, but in the VHS release it plays Electric Avenue by Eddy Grant.

Trivia: In various shots, Drix can be seen blinking one eye before the other.

Trivia: Originally there was going to be a toy line made for Osmosis Jones, but WB lost faith in the project and canceled their release. Only prototypes of the toys exist today.

Trivia: When put in the eye of the public (whenever cameras are around), Drix can be seen flexing in different poses.

Trivia: When Thrax hijacks a vehicle and throws out the driver, the driver yells a Wilhelm scream.

Continuity mistake: Look carefully at the brochure Frank has about the Buffalo Chicken Wing festival, the building pictured is the same building as his daughter's school (seen earlier in the movie).

Upvote valid corrections to help move entries into the corrections section.

Suggested correction: While the buildings might look similar, they are different buildings. The school has 3 levels with rectangular windows with a pyramid top while the building in the brochure only has 2 levels of non-rectangular windows and more of a dome shape on top.

Osmosis: You bet I was! You ever try to make a snowman out of toilet paper cling-ons? Now that's poor!
Drix: OK, please, you're going to make me vomit!
Osmosis: Vomit? We couldn't afford no vomit; that's for rich folk.
Drix: Excuse me while I wipe my eyes.

More quotes from Osmosis Jones

Question: What happened to Shane's mom? In one scene we learn that she died because she was sick but what did she have that caused her to die?

Answer: Just like Frank, Shane's mom never ate healthily. Instead, like Frank, she probably just ate whatever she wanted, so she most likely died from a heart attack from eating unhealthy foods or from obesity.
