"I watched something totally brainless on tv.
If that is what you are looking for, I have the movie for you-- "Josie and the Pussycats". Based the 1970's cartoon series about a female pop rock band, they released a live action movie in 2001 starring Rachel Leigh Cook, Rosario Dawson and Tara Reid in the main roles of the band members. Other notable stars are Alan Cumming, Parker Posey and Seth Green. It pretty much bombed at the box office but I think it has missed the mark with most viewers. It has a little bit of a cult following now but took some time to achieve that status. As a fan of the animated series, I was interested from the start of production when the news broke. Maybe some fans just didn't get it. Maybe they just didn't enjoy it.
Anyway, here we go. The plot is when Josie and the Pussycats get signed to a label, the record company is putting subliminal messages in their songs (and other artists too) planting seeds telling the fans what to listen to, what to buy, all the latest fads, etc. The ultimate inside joke in all of this is the insane amount of product placement all over the background in nearly every single scene. I know some people consider this movie a nightmare but I think the only nightmare would be for the legal department to get clearances for all these products. It definitely isn't anything Oscar worthy or even remotely close to it. But if you are looking something fun to just watch and not have wild expectations with, this is the movie for you.
