Bob Spiers (director of TV's Absolutely Fabulous) directed this feature-film debut of the five Spice Girls -- Posh Spice, Sporty Spice, Scary Spice, Ginger Spice, and Baby Spice -- as the quintet challenges the London pop scene during five days before their first live performance at the Royal Albert Hall in London.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Loony mockumentary captures Spice Girl fever."
‑ Heather Boerner, Common Sense Media
"Spice World works because it has the foresight to play with the manufactured-ness of the group, and of the movie itself."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
"Three people in the audience danced at the finale, too, male and female, so it couldn't have sucked. Pay a buck, take a load off, sip a soda, and enjoy it for what it is."
‑ Karina Montgomery, Cinerina
"Kim Fuller's screenplay is a rather desperate, free-for-all affair, fitfully amusing as well as groan-inducing."
‑ David Noh, Film Journal International
"This movie wasn't so much written as dripped. It's a fine waste of time for nine-year-olds."
‑ Cole Smithey, ColeSmithey.com
"...loose and junky, and one wonders what could have happened had the Spice Girls turned out to be as interesting as the Beatles"
‑ Philip Martin, Arkansas Democrat-Gazette
"Would be more aptly named Sh*te World than Spice World."
‑ Michael Dequina, TheMovieReport.com
"You can almost hear the production meetings"
‑ Shane Burridge, rec.arts.movies.reviews
"probably a coin-toss victory against a Spice Babies Saturday morning cartoon"
‑ Jesse Hassenger, Filmcritic.com
"GENIUS! Of some sort, anyway."
‑ Luke Y. Thompson, New Times
"Anything this cheerfully dumb could not be the product of a healthy mind."
‑ Eric Lurio, rec.arts.movies.reviews
"the Girls have a winning sense of humor about themselves... To borrow a line from a pop princess of the past, these Girls just want to have fun, and sometimes the good humor they generate is contagious."
‑ James Sanford, Kalamazoo Gazette
