Warner Bros. animation was in serious financial trouble during the film's production, and in 2000 it came down to two options, green-light another film by Director Brad Bird who made the critically acclaimed film The Iron Giant, or this film, Warner Execs choose this film over Bird's and upon learning this Bird got so mad at Warner Bros. that he took his film with him to Disney and Pixar animation to be made, that film would be the highly successful The Incredibles, whereas this film bombed at the box office, was critically panned, and ultimately killed Warner Bros. Feature Animation. See more »
When Osmosis comes back from "The Zit" he greets Leah by saying "Brandy- oh I mean Leah". Brandy Norwood was the voice of Leah. The error was left in because the director thought it was funny. See more »

The Warner Brothers logo comes up looking like a germ-like substance with tentacles (with a blue tint) matching the "feel" of the movie, and is static instead of the modern 3D animated sequence. See more »
Okay, I think I've found the Sadly Underrated Movie of the Year.
I think that, between this and "the Iron Giant", Warner Brothers Animation has GOT to spring for a better promotion department. Really, all they'd have to say is something like: "We just let the creators of 'Something About Mary' and 'Dumb and Dumber' make their own cartoon. Brace yourselves."
All complaints aside, and none of them are really the movie's fault, this is one of the most inventive animated films I've seen in a very long time. The characters and backgrounds are allowed to look and move in ways that are downright refreshingly bizarre. The visuals are very imaginative. The humor, while funny, is still very much what you'd expect from a Farelly Brothers movie that takes place inside a very sick man, so I wouldn't recommend it to little kids or the weak of stomach. If you have a little future A+P major, however, this is going to blow their mind. Give it a look!
