Spice World is a smart vehicle for the Girls, a cheerful and occasionally witty self-parody that does for the Spices what Help! and A Hard Day's Night did for the Beatles.

Spiers makes what was conceived by the Fullers as an album plug play as an actual movie. Though it will doubtless pain many a critic to say so, Spice World is a kick.

A promotional tool that establishes its superfluousness simply by existing, this clumsy, smirking movie has a bitter soul.

The first (and as it transpired only) feature film to exploit the enormous success of pop quintet the Spice Girls, this is an attempt to capture the comedic style of the Beatles films, and not nearly as bad as it might have been.

Loony mockumentary captures Spice Girl fever.

Obviously, "Spice World" is a deplorable film, but as a time capsule we can use to return to a time when they thought it was ok to make a feature film… More

As a young fan of the Spice Girls, I loved being able to see my hero's. Now however, I can see it's terrible and should be forgotten about.

I don't remember seeing this since I was 6. But even my 6 year old self would say this sucks. Grade: F?
