Sometimes I’m surprised by a film that I did not expect much from. I actually had a good time with “Josie and the Pussycats.” They made me laugh – and without any flatulence jokes! The opening sequence is perfect satire as it parodies the lifestyle of rock musicians. Keeping in mind that most of the humor and situations are aimed at a pre-teen market, I was pleased to find that the lead ladies were more about doing the right thing than extolling girl power. There’s no heavy message in this comic adventure, other than friendship being more important than financial gain. It’s just family-friendly fluff. While the Pussycats are this year’s Spice Girls, and although they do show a lot of flat tummies, they are decent young role models, unwilling to sacrifice their sense of right and wrong for fame and fortune.
