Thrax is motivated by trying to become the nastiest new virus, attempting to kill each new victim faster than the previous.

Fun movie indeed
21 September 2002 | by (Nashville, TN) – See all my reviews

I can't believe this movie made such little money it's sad cause it's a very cute and original idea. It's fun to watch how the pill and blood cell travel to different parts of the body. And Bill Murray is good as usual, and Chris Rock's voice fits in with the main character rather well too. I wish the real story could have been put in a little more and the daughter character a little less, plus Chris Elliott is a terrible actor. But overall the movie isn't bad and it's fun and cute, 7/10
