Flashback Friday: Osmosis Jones (2001)

The buddy comedy genre is one that is both limited in scope, but also, if done in a certain way, can go beyond the traditional boundaries.

The 2001 film, Osmosis Jones combines live action and animation. Frank DeTorre’s (Bill Murray) life has turned upside down since his wife passed. His emotional response to her loss is to overeat and not take care of himself. Inside his body, Osmosis “Ozzy” Jones (Chris Rock) is a white blood cell cop who is just a little too enthusiastic about his job. When Frank contracts a virus named Thrax (Laurence Fishburne), he has to work with new partner Drix (David Hyde Pierce). They try to get along, but like any new partnership, it takes time to find its sweet spot.

This movie is funny, charming, and takes the buddy cop comedy genre to a level in which audiences have not seen before. It is also a lesson in biology that teaches more about our bodies than we ever learned in school.

Do I recommend it? Yes.
