Movie has a bold message, executed with brilliant humor (by tmillen04)
This is a movie that satirizes today's pop culture, and does a brilliant job of it. The cast and musical score are excellent and all of its jokes are funny and well placed. People say that the movie becomes what it is making fun of. Well, isn't that the idea? The movie is packed with about a billion logos appearing everywhere you look in the background, and a scene with an audience of cardboard cut-out celebrities. These are there to add to the atmosphere of the film. This movie is very strong, very well done, and has a real sense of humor. To top it off, it's led by a band with <more>
music that's so good you can't even tell they're not real. If you haven't seen it, go watch it. I'd recommend buying the soundtrack as well.
I got a chance to see a sneak preview of Josie & the Pussycats this past week. I really didn't have many expectations for this film...all I was looking for was a fun movie that wouldn't make me cringe too much. Well, without hesitation I can say this movie totally blew me away. It was by far one of the funniest movies I've seen in a LONG time. Sure, it was campy, but it garnered genuine and consistent laughs from the audience. It's been a long time since I've seen a movie with such energy and well-balanced pacing. All three actresses were fantastic as the Pussycats, <more>
staying very true to their comic book/tv characters. Rachel Leigh Cook was an excellent choice for Josie...she adds a poignancy to the role that was completely unexpected. As you can imagine, there is the usual romantic subplot, but Cook gives it an honesty and sweetness that saved it from becoming a cliche. Rosario Dawson also did a wonderful job of humanizing Val, portraying her as a strong yet insecure woman. Tara Reid had the hardest part of all. How do you portray a ditzy character so that it doesn't degenerate into a one-note gag? Answer: Make the character endearing. Reid did a wonderful job at making Melody's sappy optimism and absent-mindedness absolutely adorable. In less capable hands, some of the gags would have fallen flat...but they got me smiling, and even laughing.The soundtrack utterly rocks...the last teen movie I can think of with a soundtrack that was so well matched to the visuals was "Clueless." Songs that could have been just filler really added to the overall energy and appeal of the film. The music style was more "hard rock" than the original TV series, but they managed to get the theme song in there somewhere, so I was happy. : At the screening I went to, people actually danced in the aisles during the end credits...not something I see every day. ^_^The script is phenomenal, filled with many in-jokes and great timely references. What's most amazing is that Josie & the Pussycats is a movie with something to say, yet it got its message across in a witty and entertaining way while avoiding being too preachy.I can honestly say Josie & The Pussycats is one of the best TV-to-Film adaptations I've ever seen--very enjoyable for fans of the old series, but remaining accessible for those who weren't.
Hilarious, Music Friendly, and a Must-see! (by heywhereismycat)
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. <more>
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*
This movie is hilarious and artfully made (by adamgutterman)
Top to bottom this movie is incredibly funny and made with clear love for the product. I've been reading some of the posts on this site about this film, and it seems that people either love it or hate it. The lovers, like me, can say that, for example, the scene mid-movie when the girls are literally climbing the charts is a wonderful shot, worth every penny. That the humor is a witty satire of today's and any day's, really pop culture. Contrawise, the haters have nothing to say but that they hate the movie - when pressed for a point, they can't produce. This is a classic <more>
case of people just missing the point. Listen to the directors' commentary as well, one of the more fascinating ones I've seen.
Prophecy in a fun rock film that deserves more attention and appreciation (by martinwjordan)
It didnt do too well at launch because it was unfairly compared by Ebert as a Spice Girls movie clone. Unfair and damaging. He was nearly 60 - this wasn't a film for him and he didn't have the foresight this film had to see where teenage pop culture was going. Watch this now and you think - "how did they know?" - the tongue in cheek parody of the music industry and teen marketing is amusingly encapsulated in a film with good rock tunes and a stereotypical fun, teen storyline. I think this film failed because people thought it would be more loyal to the comic / cartoon but it <more>
tried to be a bit more clever than that. Sadly, the audience at the time were not ready for that. Look at comic to movie executions and you see the same sarcasm and self deprecation that this exudes. Also, Rachel Leigh Cook, Tara Cook & Rosario Dawson do a grand job as the leads and Alan Cumming hams it up wonderfully. Also - DuJour - on the money.
This movie manages to be several things simultaneously. It's something of a traditional "rock" movie will The Pussycats make it to the big concert on time, and in one piece? , it is a perky little film about the importance of friendship, it's a spoof, and its is a rather clever indictment of media manipulation and product placement. Rachel Leigh Cook gives an endearing performance as Josie McCoy; Tara Reid gives a great performance as the ditsy but sweet drummer Melody, and Rosario Dawson is quite solid, although the script doesn't give her too much to work with. On a <more>
serious level, the film is beautifully post-modern, as can be seen in Allan Cumming's frequent breaching of the fourth wall, and in the rather brilliant line from Missi Pyle's character, Alexandra, who comments that she is in the movie because she's in the comic book. The pace is quite hectic, something even the characters are aware of "Does it strike anyone else as funny that all this has happened in a week?" .
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 <more>
catch. I recommend this movie to anyone looking for a laugh!
Cute as a kitten - I just wish it had real claws (by clivy)
I decided to watch "Josie and the Pussycats" because I heard good things about it, and I'm glad I did. I'm delighted that Richard H. Goldwater and the great Dan DeCarlo were acknowledged with writing credits. The film Pussycats aren't very much like the cartoon and comic Pussycats, except that Melody is still blonde and ditsy and Alexandra catty sorry . Alan was adorable as a male dumb blonde but I can't remember if he was that way in the comics. The movie rocked I even missed Coronation Street to catch the ending. It's very enjoyable for adults like me who <more>
are young at heart and the truly young. I wish more movies like "Josie" had been around when I was a little kid. I like the message being given that conformity and expensive clothes don't make people happy. And yet, two things struck me as highly ironic: the first was that this movie is coming out of Archie comics, the same company that gave the world the ultimate manufactured band "Sugar Sugar" was recorded by session musicians and credited to "the Archies" after the Monkees rebelled and refused to sing it . The second was that I liked how the script poked fun at marketing by excessively promoting products and showing how record companies and the government are trying to control teenagers and pre-teens? by placing subliminal messages in pop music that tells the kids to go out and buy the latest fad. Ultimately though the film is having it both ways: all the products and TV shows Viacom's channels got plugged a lot will stay in the audience's minds after the outtakes roll. Perhaps since "Hard's Day Night" making fun of the industry is now part of pop music and rock movies: make the kids laugh and feel they're putting a finger up to the companies that want them to buy their products while they're buying the products. I notice that the soundtrack to "Josie" did very well. Oh well, at least the movie is true to the comics in the way that it's sweet and ultimately wholesome. I can't help wishing that it was brave enough for sharper satire.
What an awesome movie. I suppose I would have to categorize this under guilty pleasure since it seems to not get much love. The rating on IMDb is wrong on a level I can't wrap my head around. This is one of those movies a lot of people, particularly guys, will look at and dismiss it just by its concept. Well, it's their loss as they're missing out on a very fun and funny movie. I'm a straight guy and I enjoy this movie on the face of it. Not for camp value or any other backhanded compliments. This is a well-produced musical comedy with great songs and some biting satire of the <more>
music industry and commercialization. The actors are all good and seem to be having a blast. The three leads are especially fun. One of Tara Reid's better movies, with some early Rosario Dawson and "She's All That" herself, Rachel Leigh Cook, both of whom I always like.I've been a big fan of this movie since it was first released. The music is upbeat and catchy. Way better than the average music written specifically for a fictional band or artist in movies. I played the soundtrack to death back in the day and still listen to it when I need a pick-me-up today. It's not just the Pussycats songs that I like but also the parody songs from the boy band Du Jour. I think in years to come Josie and the Pussycats will become a cult favorite. It's too good to go ignored forever. I really hope history vindicates what I consider to be one of the best comedies that came out in the 2000s.
