DTS renders the sound quality exceptionally broad and fine. Picture quality is adequate without being exceptional. A proposed "Too Hot to Handle" featurette never made it into this DVD release.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Michael Hastings
Satirizing teen wish-fulfillment fantasies as it satisfies them, Josie and the Pussycats provides just enough bite to set it apart from the cookie-cutter parade of high-gloss, adolescent-marketed offerings of the new century. Although laid on in thick, broad, fluorescent-hued strokes, Josie's pointed satire could never be mistaken for mere absurdity: the plot insinuates that boy bands, MTV, and mall record stores are all part of a corporate conspiracy to sell more Starbucks coffee and Abercrombie and Fitch T-shirts. Directors Deborah Kaplan and Harry Elfont occasionally let the film's staging and pacing go slack -- perhaps they should've reviewed a few more screwball comedies before shooting -- but they smartly keep the proceedings at Saturday morning-cartoon level (even the insidious subliminal-advertising generator is a giant, opaque plastic box). Better yet, leads Rachel Leigh Cook, Rosario Dawson, and Tara Reid strike a near-perfect balance between savvy and giddy. The film's catchy, proto-grunge soundtrack may be its greatest asset and -- at least commercially -- its biggest liability: full of raw power chords and hummable melodies, it's a throwback to the days of good punk-pop, as opposed to the saccharine, Britney-esque sound of its time.

    Josie and the Pussycats is the best movie out there on the market. Rachael Leigh Cook did a fabulous job as Josie, as well as Tara Reid,Parker Posey, Rosario Dawson, Alan Cumming, Gabriel Mann, Paulo Costanzo,and Missi Pyle. This is definitly a 5 star movie.

    The Cat's Meow

    Josie and the Pussycats is the best! I like to read the comix, too. I think Melody is really funny (''The walls are mushy!'') and that the TV Show should air again. My dad and stepmom have seen the cartoon when they were kids. And I'm praising Rachael Leigh Cook on a great Josie role!

    Josie Rocks the Pop World

    Josie and the Pussycats is a fun, fresh, and hilarious view of the world of teenage pop culture. The movie itself is a witty satire of the conformity of teenagers and the domination of advertising agencies and does so in a non-offensive way while remaining funny. The music is great, and the actors are a perfect fit to the characters. A must-see for anyone wishing to be a pop sensation.
