1. Earth Girls Are Easy (1988)
2. Camp (2003)
3. The Apple (1980)
4. Josie and the Pussycats (2001)
A film based on a cartoon from the seventies that nobody really cared about never really had a fighting chance. That, and in 2001, no one was really running to see Tara Reid in a starring role. It's a shame, because Josie and The Pussycats is actually a smarter movie than you think it is. It was written and directed by the same creative forces behind Can't Hardly Wait and features Parker Posey at her snarky best, harboring secret insecurities by parading around in ridiculous materialism and manipulation.
Similar to The Apple, Josie is about a small town band exploited by a devious record executive for the purpose of controlling teenagers through consumerism. Breckin Meyer, Seth Green, and Donald Faison make great cameos as member of DuJour, a sly parody of N*SYNC and the boy band explosion of the late nineties.
The soundtrack to the film is one of my favorite albums of the 2000s; catchy pop-punk songs written for the film and sung by Kay Hanley, singer of the 90s group Letters to Cleo. I dare you to not find yourself enjoying "Three Small Words" shown in the above video.
