Movie-A-Day #213: Josie and the Pussycats (2001).

August 1, 2011

MTV turns 30 years old today, which is positively over the hill for such a youth-oriented institution. The music video channel quickly became a pop cultural phenomenon, drastically changing the music industry (and the larger culture) forever. But over the past couple of decades they have drifted farther and farther away from music in favor of reality crap like “Jersey Shore” and “Jackass.” “Josie and the Pussycats” is a great satire of the old MTV – when it was still king of the music world – that works because it spoke the same language as the kids targeted by MTV’s programming. It seems a little quaint now, given how much pop culture has changed in the past decade thanks to everything from 9/11 to YouTube and Twitter, but it’s still a fun film.
