Trivia

Among the many in-jokes (which may become obscured by the mists of time) is Dennis saying, when asked to fix the toilets, that he'd do anything for the girls, "but I won't do that!" - a reference to Meat Loaf's single, "I Would Do Anything For Love (But I Won't Do That)". See more »

Goofs

Victoria keeps changing position, and changing what she is doing with her mobile phone, while the girls are in the rotunda in the garden, in their robes. See more »

To *HECK* with all the naysayers!
2 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

SPICEWORLD is a good, enjoyable movie. It is NOT Cinéma Vérité, nor is it supposed to be. You want a deep, poignant movie? A thriller? An action-flick? Watch something else. This movie is a farce, and was intended to be only that, nothing more. You people who didn't like the movie are expecting LORD OF THE RINGS or something, and this will never reach that level. But for a fun, energetic, insane romp with countless nods to classic movies, stars, and actors, this is perfect.

The Spice Girls had their time in the limelight and used it to produce essentially a theatrically-released extended music video. If you're old enough to remember M-TV when it was actually JUST a music video channel, this is what SPICEWORLD is (think of the classic Michael Jackson video/movies like THRILLER where it was music and a bit of story tossed in for good measure). Nope, not Oscar™ material by a long shot, but still quite enjoyable.

Oh yes... one last thing: I saw this movie on PPV in 1998 and immediately fell in love with it and the Spice Girls. I was 28 then, and even though I'm 36 now, I still enjoy this movie for what it is. Perhaps that's because I'm OLD ENOUGH to know what it ISN'T.
