Josie and the Pussycats

Synopsis: For years, the record industries have inserted subliminal messages into music so that they can turn teenagers into brain dead zombies who do nothing but buy, buy, buy. And whenever the musician or band finds out the truth, the record company silences them to keep the truth from coming out. When the hot boy band DuJour discovers this, their manager, Wyatt Frame, under his evil, corrupt boss, Fiona, has the plane they are flying in crashed and him looking for a new band to use for their evil schemes. Enter Josie, the ditsy Melody, and the tough Valerie, from Josie and the Pussycats, a small band who wants to make it to the big time. When they are discovered by Wyatt, they give in and become big rock stars. But will they find out that they are just pawns for the record industry or will fame take them over?

Does he look like this?

Or like this?

- That's it.

- Break it up!

- Dujour means seat belts!

Dujour means

crash positions!

Looks like we need

to find a new band.

Thank you.

- Thank you, guys.

- Real nice.

Thanks for comin' out.

You're a great crowd.

Okay, girls.

We need the lane now...

and your shoes.

- So how'd we do?

- Twenty dollars... minus

five dollars shoe rental.

Fifteen dollars.


Five dollars.

All things considered,

I'd say this was

our best show yet.

We just need to

build a following.

Look, skanky had a rock show,

and nobody came.

Did you guys all coordinate

before you left the house,

or are you wearing

the same thing by accident?

At least we're not

wearing stupid bunny ears.

They're not bunny.

They're leopard.

And they're not stupid.

They're special.

- We're special.

- Yeah, special... ed.

Enjoy the gutters, Josie.

You'll be playing there forever.

Hey. Hey, come on.

Who's a rock star?

Who's a rock star?

I am.

That's right.

There you go.

Lookin' good, McCoy!

Alan M, what's...

What's goin' on?

Uh, the, uh, truck died.


#Did I bust the carburetor#

#Overload the alternator#

Jump in anytime.

- #Abused the accelerator#

- Nice.

You can't drive this uphill

when it's hot outside.

I told you.

You don't deserve

a truck this good.

You totally take it for granted.

#Takin' my truck for granted#

#She says I'm taking

my truck for granted#

Um, Jose?

Did, uh...

Did you ever want to tell

someone something, but...

but you weren't sure

if you should, you know?


'Cause you didn't know what

their reaction might be or if

it was the right thing to do?

You should tell them.

You should always tell them.

'Cause there's this guy at work,

and he just reeks, you know?

A guy?


- Smelly guy.
