Bill Murray's character mentions a "National Chicken Wing Festival" in Buffalo, New York. While the festival did not exist during the filming of the movie, this mention caused organizers to create an annual festival in Buffalo. See more »

[Drix is at the bladder, about to board the next barge out]
Drix! Yo, Drix! Get your time-released butt off this boat. Thrax is alive! Let's go!
I'm sorry, Osmosis, I can't help you.
I wasn't designed to combat a virus. Read my label.
You gotta learn to think outside the pill box, man. I've known sugar pills who cured cancer, just because they believed they could.
Oh, I don't know, Ozzy. Look at me. I'm cherry flavored.
Hey, pal. You on or off?
Fine. Flush your life down the toilet.

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!
