    Sensationally exuberant, imaginatively crafted and intoxicatingly clever.
  2. The action is as perky as the main characters.
  3. That rare film aimed at teenage girls that's still enjoyable for grownup viewers.
  4. Light and frothy though all this is, there is an off-putting element to "Josie," and it's what must be the film's world record number of product placements.
  5. What should have been 90 zippy minutes of jingling, giggling, winking fakery adds up to only about 20 minutes of fun.
  6. A new millennium version of "A Hard Day's Night" without any wit to balance the silliness.
  7. 10
    The fat cats of Hollywood have coughed up a hairball.

    I first saw this movie when I was 9 years old. I fell instantly in love. The soundtrack is totally catchy and the girls have great chemistry I first saw this movie when I was 9 years old. I fell instantly in love. The soundtrack is totally catchy and the girls have great chemistry together. I feel the movie would have seen more success had it been given a PG rating, as it really did appeal to younger than 13. I still frequently watch it now, but mostly because it gives me that warm fuzzy feeling. The language isn't too bad, and don't worry, your little girls won't get the sexual references. I know I didn't (until I was older anyways). It's good fun for the pre-teen crowd, and the music is fun and clean too. Collapse

    It's funny how harsh the critics were on this movie as it was clearly a satire that commented on consumerism in the early 2000s as well asIt's funny how harsh the critics were on this movie as it was clearly a satire that commented on consumerism in the early 2000s as well as adding great music. Nothing was to be taken seriously, but rather as a large joke. My favourite cult classic of all time, though if I had been the creators I would have ensure it was PG instead of PG-13, as it then would have had a larger box office draw. Expand
