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

During the Behind The Music show Valerie is watching about The Captain and Tennille and The Chief, The Chief says that he was mostly responsible for "Love Will Keep Us Together". However, Neil Sedaka and Howard Greenfield wrote the song in 1973. The Captain and Tennille's version was simply a cover recorded in 1975. See more »
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 »
PG version is in Fullscreen only, is an Family edited version of the movie:
Melody is holding a sign that says "Honk if you love Pussycats," you don't see this clip in the video at all,they replaced it with something else.
TWO bits of dialog where they did voice-overs. Both times it's the bad guys ranting and you can tell their lips move differently from the "cleaner" dialog that's inserted.
This is one of my favorite movies. It's definitely one of the funnest movies I've ever seen. The music is very high quality and the soundtrack is excellent! It's a good change from all the violent movies out there, this one lets you escape...and makes you want to sing! It's one of those memorabilia movies that reminds you of the cartoons you used to watch. It pokes fun at the entertainment industry and subliminal messages. This is a very light hearted movie. It is suitable for children and adults. There are a few innuendos in the movie, ones that small children would not catch. I recommend this movie to anyone looking for a laugh!
