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

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 »

You know what to expect.
18 January 2009 | by (Noctropolis) – See all my reviews

I had a few expectations towards this movie... When I watched it, merely by accident, I can't say I enjoyed it but I had a decent time when I had nothing better to do.

See, this isn't the typical early 2000's humor. It features the musical features with the super-girls action moments, and the typical American humor we love.

Rachael Leigh Cook shines through the movie with her perkiness, beauty and comedic skills. Tara Reid just needs to look hot.

The cast is very good but I think that the plot is what saves this movie from being labeled as "another teen movie".
