There is a real argument to be made for the quality of this movie. There is some kind of Monty Python-esque thing going on here. I genuinely laughed out loud a few times. It doesn't take itself seriously. It knows exactly what it is. It is a satire about themselves, the music industry, and pop culture in general. Plus, there are some surprisingly authentic and tender moments in the movie. It also doesn't hurt that there are some seriously impressive cameos.

Everything in Spice World means something much deeper than what appears on the surface. Every time I thought to myself, "...ok this is getting ridiculous," I paused. Why are there aliens visiting these girls while they are trying to take a group piss in the woods? Why is there a photographer crawling out of their toilet? Why is there a montage of them dressing up as each other? I encourage you to watch this movie and when you start to think to yourself, "why," (which will happen about twice every scene) don't just roll your eyes and shake your head. Really ask yourself, what are they trying to say?

Overall, am I going to start telling everyone they have to go watch it? Yes, actually. Well, maybe not everyone, but definitely those willing to give it a second or even first chance. I think there is real merit to this film. There isn't much out there that takes a satirical look at celebrity and the music industry in as interesting and entertaining of a way as Spice World. Wow, I can't believe I just wrote that.

If you don't love the girls, you probably shouldn't waste your time on this. However, if you do, it's ridiculous and amazing. 4 stars.

I was a die hard fan. As a preteen, I knew it by heart, especially Ginger Spice quotes. I showed the movie to my kids and they liked it too. It's funny ridiculous and they know how to have fun.
J'étais une fan pure et dure. Préado, je le connaissais par coeur, et particulièrement les répliques de Ginger Spice. Je l'ai écouté avec mes enfants et ils ont bien aimé aussi. C'est ridiculement drôle et ces filles savent comment s'amuser.

This movie was made for a target audience. Pre teen girls and young girls who loved the spice girls. It's a kids movie. Kids movies are silly. Of course men and boys will hate this movie and older women who don't even like the spice girls won't like it either! When i was a kid i LOVED this movie. Adults should not rate kids movies.

SPICE WORLD is a complete, entertainment-free dead-zone. There is absolutely nothing in this movie to be even remotely interested in. It is a film so awful, the only way to possibly sit through it is being in a place or a situation that you cannot possibly escape from it. I watched this film on a bus some years back while on a trip to South Carolina. I had heard of this film, and some schoolmates of mine wanted to watch it. How a bunch of decent, normal kids of that age could have liked this movie- I will never know. Clearly, they didn't demand much in the way of entertainment. But this movie is so beneath even those standards.

The film is really nothing more than marketing propaganda for the popular 1990's British all-girl band. There isn't really a plot here- just the 5 pretty women being themselves, I guess. I didn't find any of them that attractive; they didn't seem interesting in any way and they all seemed too stupid and too hollow to be interesting people. All they do is chat, and have fun. There is no character development. The Spice Girls seem like trashy, living Barbie dolls.

The film felt like a complete waste of time from start to finish- the boredom and the disinterest was the center of this utterly fucked movie- it is so badly made and so jarringly put together, the whole film seemed like a very long, endless commercial for the Spice Girls.

This movie deserves to be forgotten and thrown into the deepest depths of eternal hell. It is so bad, so uninvolving and so pathetic- forget about the bad music, this wouldn't even work as a movie that wasn't about the Spice Girls, it's so atrociously made. Did anybody think about how bad of an idea of this movie was and what a bad movie it would make?

Its strength is that it doesn't take itself seriously.

Más cerca a "A Hard Day's Night" y más lejos de "Cool As Ice", esta película musical que busca explotar el fenómeno Pop de las Spice Girls, gana algo de clase gracias a su auto-consciencia de la ridiculez del asunto y a las inexplicables apariciones de personas como Hugh Laurie, Bob Hoskins, Richard E. Grant, Elvis Costello, Elton John, Bob Geldof, Meat Loaf, Roger Moore, Jennifer Saunders, Alan Cumming, Dominic West y Stephen Fry, entre otros.

Ya gotta love a movie where one of the titles is "Idea By" and credit is given to the star or stars, in this case the malodorous Spice Girls. "Hey, we've got an idea. Let's make a movie!" You get opening titles billing for that in the writing block? Seriously? Or am I short-changing them. "Hey, we've got an idea. Let's rip off The Beatles and make a movie!" Watching this movie is the equivalent of wrapping your sphincter around a jet engine on full blast while chewing on broken glass and squirting drops of Tabasco Sauce in your eyes. Seriously, I hadn't felt this physically ill since I ate a Filet 'O' Fish sandwich that had been left sitting out ... for 142 days. Jesus Christ! Scary Spice, indeed. And mind you, not even one good daisy chain anal 69 sequence. One very sad note: Somehow Sir Roger Moore got tangled up in this freakmare. Casting him in this movie is essentially elder abuse. It's too bad the Spice Girls didn't pursue careers as window hookers in Amsterdam. The world would be a better place for it.

Close to being one of the worst movies I've ever seen. It's a total joke. (First and only full viewing - 6/26/2015)

Maybe I just don't know any song from them other than "Wannabe" or maybe its because I wasn't old enough to care about them. Regardless, Spice World is a bad film filled with bad acting, unfunny jokes, no plot, too many subplots, and random scenes just meshed into one film.According to many critics, Spice Girls weren't even that big of a thing in the 90s, so a film dedicated to them doesn't make sense. Spice World is a weird unfunny shitty film that just wastes your time and money

Flawlessly camp, endlessly quotable. The movie of my childhood, and the same for anyone who enjoyed pop music of the 90's.
