This self-styled self-reflexive comedy asks the question, just how stupid are teenagers?

Their cool-to-be-cruel stance is too hip for the room and a likely turnoff for preteen girls who don't like fluff balls laced with bile.

The concept is so hypocritical, it's like Britney Spears calling Christina Aguilera underdressed and overexposed.

It's amazing that writer-directors Deborah Kaplan and Harry Elfont sustain this in-jokey screwball punk musical satire as long as they do.

Nothing more than a cutesy movie strapped with a bad and obvious idea: marketing gone amok.

If this live-action adaptation of pop-cultural piffle isn't proof of moviedom's creative poverty, nothing is.

It's hard not to wonder if the real point of the joke -- that kids are controlled by corporations -- wasn't just to create a 95-minute marketing vehicle.

You feel the movie getting bogged down under its thesis, which is a half-baked conspiracy theory to begin with.

What saves Josie and the Pussycats from its predictable, sour plot (and its dark, ugly visuals) is its playful spirit.

Josie and the Pussycats are not dumber than the Spice Girls, but they're as dumb as the Spice Girls, which is dumb enough.

Girl-pop fans might find themselves drawn to their local record store in search of the soundtrack, no subliminal messages needed.

If its ragtag heroines are as wholesome as ice-cream cones and as skimpily dressed as Hooters servers, at least they are not conformist mallrats.
