In this offbeat independent comedy, Spork (Savannah Stehlin) is an awkward junior high student with bad skin and worse hair. Spork has one other thing that causes her grief -- a penis. Though she lives as a girl, Spork is a hermaphrodite (hence her nickname -- "not a spoon, not a fork"), and her sexual ambiguity makes her the target of constant bullying by overwrought mean girl Becky Byotch (Rachel G. Fox) and her clique of harpies in training. Things are not much better at home, where orphaned Spork lives with her slobby brother, Spit (Rodney Eastman), and his sedentary girlfriend,… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A potty and potty-mouthed junior-high school musical that is by turns both energetic and slack."
‑ Carrie Rickey, Philadelphia Inquirer
"Ghuman might have managed to salvage the film from its weak script if he'd had a firmer grasp on tone, and a better melding of the mish-mash of pop culture references."
‑ Ernest Hardy, Village Voice
"A laboriously quirky, low-fi coming-of-age comedy that's basically a gender-inverted rip-off of Napoleon Dynamite, plus a few bells and whistles, and minus the tater tots and actual humor."
‑ Brent Simon, Shockya.com
""Glee" has a helluva lot to answer for if it was in any way responsible for this irritating teen mess."
‑ David Noh, Film Journal International
"Camp often means a lack of feeling and generalized disdain; not so in "Spork," which has as much heart as "Sixteen Candles.""
‑ Kyle Smith, New York Post
"For all its poignancy, "Spork" never loses sight of its goal to be zesty, sharp-witted fun."
‑ Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times
"Proof positive that hermaphrodites are people deserving of Hollywood endings, too!."
‑ Kam Williams, NewsBlaze
"As uplifting stories of tolerance and self-discovery go, "Spork" has a messy appeal, but it's no "Hairspray.""
‑ Mike Hale, New York Times
"A quirky, imaginative and outrageously funny little movie that will speak to more of us than any of us would like to admit."
‑ Tim Cogshell, Boxoffice Magazine
"Never feels authentically out-there because it still more or less toes the line of every teen comedy from Welcome to the Dollhouse to Mean Girls."
‑ Paul Schrodt, Slant Magazine
