Josie and the Pussycats
Writers/directors Deborah Kaplan and Harry Elphont (Can't Hardly Wait
) offer up another criminally underrated teen comedy with Josie and the Pussycats
. You couldn't ask for a cuter title trio than Rachael Leigh Cook, Rosario Dawson and Tara Reid as the hard-working rock combo from small-town Riverdale. The film's cutting satire has the gals recruited by a big-time music promoter (Alan Cummings) and used to brainwash teens into buying loads of consumer products. Sadly, this spot-on parody will sail over the heads of most of the people it's aimed at.
