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.

Question: If Frank got Anthrax by eating the egg in the monkey's mouth, shouldn't that monkey have been dead anyway?

Answer: We are never told that the monkey was sick with the disease. The egg does fall out of the monkeys mouth and onto the ground where the virus could have easily been on the ground and it just happened to come into contact with the egg.

Answer: There are viruses that are specific to humans that will not infect chimpanzees and vice versa. Thrax is species specific to Homo sapiens.

It should be noted that anthrax isn't a virus but a bacterium. Anthrax can spread from infected animals to humans.

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.

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.
Osmosis: Oh, you wanna talk about wiping?
Drix: No.

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).
