Osmosis Jones opened on August 10, 2001, after an August 7th premiere at Grauman’s Egyptian Theatre. While the film received praise for the animated sequences, which earned it numerous Annie Award nominations, it was heavily criticized for the comparatively lethargic live-action scenes. The gross-out humor of the live scenes, a trademark of the Farrelly brothers, was also panned. Ultimately, the film ended up grossing only $14 million against a $70 million budget. As a result, the feature unit was significantly scaled back and eventually folded into the main animation unit with the next box office disappointment, Looney Tunes: Back in Action. And Brid’s film that Warner Bros. passed on? It was released by Disney as The Incredibles.
