Entertainment Weekly
Oscillates between streaky black comedy and sanitary instruction.

Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Surprise of surprises, it's a blast.

Warts and all, Osmosis Jones is the year's ultimate bodily functions comedy.
75
In a dismal summer for movies, Osmosis Jones is a fresh breath of foul air.

Young viewers may guffaw, but seasoned fans of "There's Something About Mary" will be disappointed.

While there's no denying that the film's animation is technically impressive and is sometimes quite clever, its inventiveness is frequently at the service of gags so distasteful that gag is the operative word.

New Times (L.A.)
That Osmosis Jones plays like a sloppy hodgepodge is no surprise: The live-action scenes were done by the Farrellys, the animation by Sito and Kroon (whose names sounds like bodily functions), and the script was penned by another first-timer, Marc Hyman. Nobody seems to be on the same page.

Salon
Remains stubbornly one-dimensional. The gags are so resoundingly and innocently pre-adolescent that it's really hard to see how the film managed a PG rating.
40
The ideas are there, hints of genius, but no one ignites them. Add Osmosis Jones to that list of universal enigmas, and, more specifically, how the Farrelly Brothers could have done so little with so much.

Chicago Reader
Cathartically disgusting adventure movie.
