This film barely manages to tell a story at all.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/10

"What's the plot?" you may be asking. Well so am I.
June 21, 2016
A promotional tool that establishes its superfluousness simply by existing, this clumsy, smirking movie has a bitter soul.
June 21, 2016
Full of silly, swirling fantasy sequences and breezy backstage glimpses into their ``lives'' - not to mention an album's worth of new tunes - Spice World offers a fanciful view of fame and female camaraderie in the fabulous '90s.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
June 21, 2016
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.
June 21, 2016
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.
June 21, 2016
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
June 21, 2016
A movie about four months too late to endure in the pop-culture annals and about four stars too short to be a four-star movie.
June 21, 2016
As an example of pop-culture debris, Spice World is absolutely perfect. Without, of course, being any good.
June 21, 2016
The result is tiresome and a blown opportunity to launch the group to an entirely new audience. And I suspect those who already are fans will learn nothing new about their "Girl Power" heroes.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4

Spice World is about as awful and shamelessly pandering as a fanzine movie could dare to be.
December 18, 2010
Loony mockumentary captures Spice Girl fever.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
May 19, 2009
This movie wasn't so much written as dripped. It's a fine waste of time for nine-year-olds.
Full Review | Original Score: D
January 7, 2009
I actually prayed for the songs. The singing scenes were far less vapid than the ones where the acting was trying to happen.
July 22, 2008
Spice World will delight the Fab Five's pre-pubescent fans, recall fond memories of the '60s to those who actually lived through them, and be forgotten within six months.
October 17, 2007
Probably a coin-toss victory against a Spice Babies Saturday morning cartoon.
| Original Score: 2.5/5
June 24, 2006
Spiers' pseudo-documentary bubble-and-squeak allows the girls to dress up, dress down, change identities, ride around in a Union Jack bus, rub shoulders with a large cameo cast, and indulge in vacuous banter. Help!
May 26, 2006
Spice World works because it has the foresight to play with the manufactured-ness of the group, and of the movie itself.
January 29, 2005
...loose and junky, and one wonders what could have happened had the Spice Girls turned out to be as interesting as the Beatles

The Spice Girls play themselves with no particular distinction.
