- 1 hr 39 min
Josie and the Pussycats is about a small-town rock band made up of three young women named Josie McCoy, Melody Valentine and Valerie Brown. Josie is the lead singer of the band the Pussycats, who are desperately trying to earn their big break. While the Pussycats play lots of local shows to small crowds, the head of MegaRecords is looking for a new act. Wyatt Frame currently manages the boy band named Du Jour, but the guys in the group start to suspect that Wyatt is up to no good. It turns out that Wyatt has worked out a deal with the government to plant subliminal messages in all of the group's records, convincing fans to spend more and more money, which makes Wyatt and the government a huge profit. Just as Du Jour grows suspcious, Wyatt bails on the band and sees a show by the Pussycats. Wyatt immediately offers the girls a record contract. Excited to get a chance to record, the girls do not even suspect that Wyatt is up to no good and immediately sign the contract. Afterwards, Wyatt whisks the girls off on a worldwide publicity tour to drum up excitement about the band. Josie is made leader of the group and the other two girls are treated like background musicians. This angers Valerie and Melody and drives a wedge between the members of the group. Josie is too caught up in the spotlight to even notice what is going on until she has a vicious fight with the other band members. Wyatt has already planned a big pay-per-view special for the band that is full of some the biggest subliminal messages he has ever devised. The girls tell him that they will not perform during the special, but he blackmails them into putting on the show. Just as the band is about to take the stage, the members of Du Jour show up and expose Wyatt's evil plans. Josie and the Pussycats is about staying true to yourself no matter the circumstances and to never turn your back on your friends.
