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

Above the picture of the girls on one of the magazine covers the headline says that Drew Barrymore, Cameron Diaz and Lucy Liu were cast to play the band in an upcoming movie. Peter Teschner, the editor of Josie and the Pussycats was also the editor of Charlie's Angels (2000), featuring these three actresses. See more »

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 »

good movie
3 July 2005 | by (Scotland.) – See all my reviews

Pretty decent feel-good movie. Superb soundtrack, talented cast. Not a disappointment at all. Lots of energy in the young cast, humorous laid- back script, and good message.

Humorous at certain points and worth watching if your a teenage girl, or especially if you like all the conspiracy theory stuff =)

Is meaningful in that it puts emphasis on importance of certain things in our lives, leaves you wanting to download the track and has a light hearted attempt at portraying messages to young people without the boring political side.

Josie and the Pussycats is lively and funny at points. I would recommend this movie to anyone who likes movie's like Mean girls, Legally Blonde etc as it is humorous and meaningful, without being overly politically correct.
