Storyline

For years, the record industries have inserted subliminal messages into music so that they can turn teenagers into brain dead zombies who do nothing but buy, buy, buy. And whenever the musician or band finds out the truth, the record company silences them to keep the truth from coming out. When the hot boy band DuJour discovers this, their manager, Wyatt Frame, under his evil, corrupt boss, Fiona, has the plane they are flying in crashed and him looking for a new band to use for their evil schemes. Enter Josie, the ditsy Melody, and the tough Valerie, from Josie and the Pussycats, a small band who wants to make it to the big time. When they are discovered by Wyatt, they give in and become big rock stars. But will they find out that they are just pawns for the record industry or will fame take them over? Written by Will

Goofs

When the band plays "3 small words" for the first time in the studio the only one singing is Josie (you can see Valerie's lips moving but can not hear her) but when Wyatt plays it back on the mega sound you can hear backup singing. See more »

Crazy Credits

In the version of "Josie and the Pussycats" released outside North America, the Universal logo transforms into the tongue stud of a screaming fan. (Universal's logo comes before Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer's on the American prints; internationally it's the other way around.) See more »

Hilarious, Music Friendly, and a Must-see!
30 April 2006 | by (bed) – See all my reviews

I absolutely love this movie! It is by far my favorite. here's the list.... 1: Amazing clothes (from the eyes of a fashion designer) 2: Amazing and catch pop-rock music (and the soundtrack is equally amazing, and I'm currently listening to it) 3: The roles were so perfectly placed, there could not have been a better of any of the characters. 4: There's so much chemistry between Josie, Val, and Melody that there's no way you can't love it. 5: The plot is very easy to follow. And it brings up a lot of points about modern day society... which includes brand named everything.

I recommend this movie to anyone! It's very light hearted and the music is amazing and makes you want to sing or dance or whatever. This movie is amazing. *enough said*
