Consensus: The animated portion of Osmosis is zippy and fun, but the live-action portion is lethargic.

Mostly animated PG film has gross-out humor, violence.

Isn't a movie so much as a health-class nutrition lecture.

You'll probably find yourself laughing at Bill Murray farting. I did.

Clever, funny, a little too gross, but still is a pretty good animated film, not Bill Murrays funniest role though.
