Sugar & Spice Reviews

December 23, 2002
Of course, an unfunny comedy is hardly news. However, even by Tinseltown's impoverished standards, one so utterly bereft is something of a rarity, and thus perversely interesting.

The best thing that can be said about the Minnesota- made comedy Sugar & Spice is that there's no reference to the fact that it was made in Minnesota.

Struggles with the existential challenge of individuating five (then six, then seven) perky white heterosexual girls wearing identical aquamarine miniskirts and halter tops.

Quite a smart little film with a surprising satirical edge.

Not in the same clever league as Bring It On.

It's fun in its raunchy unwieldiness.

A laugh-out-loud winter's treat.

It means to be knowing and cynical but is just callow.
January 29, 2001
A frothy motion picture that offers moments of guilty pleasure but isn't good enough to earn a recommendation.

You get the feeling that it's bad on purpose, which makes it, given the number of teenage movies that are terrible by accident, not bad at all.

Amusingly subversive, thanks to sharp writing and direction.
January 29, 2001
About as good as you'd expect. But never as good as you'd prefer.

Watching a teen flick as morally bankrupt as Sugar & Spice ... you have to wonder if Hollywood is really getting the message about gratuitous film violence.

This is Heathers with half the laughs and none of the edge.

A setup stretched as thinly over feature length as the average movie-bound Saturday Night Live sketch.
January 26, 2001
It's brightly diverting enough most of the time to get it past its shortfall.
January 26, 2001
It's alive and risky and saucy.

A surprising amount of the humor stems from well-drawn caricatures and cleverly seeded payoffs.

[A] deliberately shallow, plasticized yuck-fest.
