Comedy
Ever wonder what regulates the popularity of certain brands, or why Nike sneakers are considered "in," and Keds are not? Well, this live-action adaptation of the popular comic strip answers those questions as three bubblegum Spice Girl-ettes enter a trend-setting Twilight Zone. They embark on a grand-scale conspiracy involving everyone from an emotionally scarred prom queen wannabe with a vengeance to the Moviefone man. Parker Posey plays the psychopathic CEO of the covert operation behind a Mega Records façade who laces the music of her latest unsuspecting new talent with pop culture exploits and self-promoting propaganda. The commentary on society's Pez dispenser mentality, the caricatures of adolescent rock stars and the catnip type of spunk of the trio help generate this lighthearted flick.
Director: Harry Elfont and Deborah Kaplan
Cast: Rachael Leigh Cook, Tara Reid, Rosario Dawson, Alan Cumming and Parker Posey
