Osmosis Jones (2002) [* * * * * *]

This is one cool movie! It's about an immunity cell, Osmosis Jones, who figures out how to fight a deadly virus, Red Death, all from the perspective of the human body as a city with numerous citizens.

The city of Frank is run by a mayor who wants to keep his seat in Cerebellum Hall and encourages the body to indulge in the most unhealthy lifestyle possible. It's incredibly funny, very well done, especially for preventative medicine to be taught to kids. Why healthy eating is so important to the colon, how a cold pill can only hide the symptoms of the greater viral infection - fascinating perspective!

Thanks, i got to see it on u tube in splits.

There is much to learn from this even for adults,and for the medical field folks to make them aware of the mistakes of interfering in the mechanism of the body,with chemicals, for short term gains.

Great animations.

Unfortunately, with Hollywood's usual wooing of pharma companies, there was a cold pill in there working with the white blood cell. lol

But the rest of it is quite interesting for medical folk and kids alike.:)
