Josie and the Pussycats : 4 of 5
I was sure I wouldn't like this movie, since I'm a semi-fan of the cartoon and I knew the film makers had changed so much. I'm happy to say I was shocked - yes, there are major changes to the premise of the Pussycats, but they really managed to keep the spirit of the story! The entire film is a hilarious look at pop marketing - logos are plastered everywhere(there's even a McDonald's shower with french fry sponges) and "produced" bands are made fun of (especially boy bands, with the movie's Du Jour singing Backdoor Lover). The girls are great, too - the music is totally Letters to Cleo, but I love that sound! The best line in the movie is Alexandra's response to "Why are you here?" - "Because I was in the comic book."
