Chill was sent into Frank as a flu vaccine. While he could have been a live, weakened virus had he been administered via LAIV (FluMist), this variety of the vaccine was not introduced until 2 years after the film was released. So Chill would have had to come from an injection, meaning he would be a dead virus. See more »

Osmosis Jones is a comedy of human proportions, I guess. It works enough and when it works well it's a good movie. Although when you think about it the plot-line inside Frank's body (frank is played by Bill Murray with no shame in great form) is rather routine and for me was the only thing keeping this from being really good.
Still, it might be a worthwhile movie, more for kids than adults, but it it watchable for all. Various voices include Chris Rock, Brandy Norwood, Laurence Fishburne, David Hyde Pierce and William Shatner. Pleasant most of the way and sometimes cool. B
