The contemporary cult classic featuring a scene-stealing performance by Parker Posey and original songs written and produced by Babyface and the late, great Adam Schlesinger, with lead vocals sung by Kay Hanley of Letters to Cleo.


Josie, Val, and Melody are three small time gals with big time dreams of taking their band out of the garage and straight to the top. But when fate gives Josie and the Pussycats the chance of a lifetime, they’ll have to carefully navigate the MegaRecords machine in order to stay true to themselves, and to each other, in this mega-entertaining blast of fun and friendship. Rachael Leigh Cook, Rosario Dawson, and Tara Reid headline, with Alan Cumming and Parker Posey hamming it up as the manipulative music executives out for their own gain.


Widely panned and misunderstood upon its initial release, JOSIE AND THE PUSSYCATS has since gone on to earn cult classic status due, in part, to its infectious soundtrack and pointed satire, which was downright prescient in its depiction of a world saturated with brand names and sponsored content. Most importantly though, the movie's totally jerkin' and a rockin' good time!
