Ranks a 'one' next to Spinal Tap's '11'.

The sour notes are all in a dumbed-down script, canned-ham performances that soon wear thin.

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

Boasts a self-referential irreverence that gleefully attacks pop culture by using members of pop culture

Alan Cumming (who's picked up where Richard E. Grant left off in Spice World) seems to be doing an impression of Stewie, the megalomaniacal baby on Family Guy.

Once again the nostalgia of our youth has been strip-mined for a Hollywood remake . . . At least this one doesn't have any CGI talking-dog monstrosities in it

About as fresh and fun as week-old kitty litter.

The best praise I can offer is it could have been worse.

Not necessarily the best film, those who remember the original series and have an interest in pop culture humor should find something in Josie to enjoy.

In the end, the plot is revealed and everything is wrapped up just like an episode of Scooby Doo. But not after the bumbling Tara Reid tortures us with her ditziness.

Josie and the Pussycats moves like one of its songs, fast, sexy, and fun.

Amusing comedy that transcends its all-too-obvious silliness thanks to a trio of sweet performances, some catchy songs and some spot-on gags at the expense of teen culture.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5

Send the teens to this one. See it yourself if you're in the mood for something that won't require much of you.
Margaret A. McGurk
Cincinnati Enquirer
October 15, 2002
The result is a frothy but irresistible movie that brims with bubbly spirit, wicked wit and punk-flavored pop tunes.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4

Josie and the Pussycats urges teenagers to be individuals instead of herd-like consumers. Ironically, in doing so, it contains more product placements than any movie I've ever seen.

Has good intentions, but unfortunately doesn't have what it takes to effectively carry them out.
