I heard someone say that Josie and the Pussycats was satire? Really? I thought it was a vehicle for pretty ladies in cat ears and tails. Not everything has to be justified. Don't try and place attributes on something that aren't there. Sometimes a bad movie is just a bad movie. Like Howard the Duck, that wasn't some sort of satire of superheroes, or have some sort of acceptance message. No. That was George Lucas trying to make a movie. Hes not really very good at that anymore (and I am starting to wonder if he ever was). Sometimes a Bad Movie is just a Bad Movie.
On a somewhat related note check out my podcast: Backpunches. Its in iTunes. You have no excuse.
