Osmosis Jones

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).

Deliberate mistake: The 'NNN' news program shows a picture of some animal crackers in Frank's stomach. The problem is, they are still all in one piece and are pretty big. I don't think Frank would swallow them whole.

Continuity mistake: When Drix freezes the witness from the ship, he says it will take a few days to wear off. Not even a day later it wears off and the witness is back to normal and runs off only to be frozen again later.

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

Osmosis: We were so poor, we lived off peanut butter and cellulite sandwiches! You ever try to blow-dry your hair with a fart?
Drix: OK, I get it. You were poor.
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.
Osmosis: Oh, you wanna talk about wiping?
Drix: No.

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.
