ZEDD'S OPINION:

I got to admit, I am no fans of the Farrelly brothers. But this time they hit the nail on the head, the combination of live action for the human world and the animation for the white cells is clever. The story is full of funny if sometimes gross humor works for the story that works. But it's more then goofy gross site gags, it had a heart. The interaction between Frank and his daughter is funny, sweet and touching. The acting is great, the dialog is great. Basically except for some gross humor that pushes the limits of taste, but that is a minor complaint. Now if you ever watched the TV show that followed that movie and haven't watched the movie, then watch the movie. 8 1/2 STARS.

VOLTRON'S OPINION:

I agree with Zedd, but I got to say without fear of controdiction that I think the pimple popping bit was too much, I've had more then my share of pimples, zits and so fourth and not one exploded the way the zit does in this movie. That is somewhat unrealistic. 8 STARS

ON THE POSSITIVE SIDE (+ HITS):

+ FUNNY (For the most part funny. Even if you over five years old.)
+ CAST (The cast does does a great job.)
+ ACTING (The acting is interesting.)
+ BOLD NEW WORLD (The world inside the human body is nothing like I could imagine.)
+ TOUCHING (Very touching.)
+ FRANK AND HIS DAUGHTER (I think they interacted well.)

ON THE NEGATIVE SIDE (- MISSES):

- HER TEACHER (Putting a restraining order on him for throwing up on him, a person has the right to be sick.)
- GROSS HUMOR (Some of the humor is gross.)
- EXPLODEING PIMPLE (Never had a pimple that exploded like it does in this movie.)

AND FINALLY...

- FAN BASED (If you aren't a fan of the series, then you won't like the movie that spawned the series.)
