Did You Know?


In the scene where The Spice Girls jump their bus over the toll bridge the movie creators made an animated scene of the Spice Bus jumping and added pre-recorded vocals of the girls screaming as jumping a vehicle over a toll bridge is dangerous in real life. A slide whistle cartoon sound effect can clearly be heard when the bus jumps. See more »

Scary Spice: [as they are talking about being stereotyped] You know, I think it's the same with fish
[points out fish in tank]
Scary Spice: I mean, look at this, you've got the spotty one, that's *wacky*. You've got the fluffy one, that's *cute* And then you have this... ugly loser one. That reminds me of my ex boyfriend, Steven
Scary Spice: Ugh
Ginger Spice: Did you *know*, that the largest fish ever is the manta ray?
Posh: [continuing] And then you've got the little *ginger* one, which is full of *useless* information, about *manta rays*!

User Reviews

Wow, ouch that had to hurt!
30 September 1999 | by (florida) – See all my reviews

I am not a Spice Girls fan, but tried to watch the movie anyway just for some laughs. Instead I ended up turning it off about 15 min into it. The only part I saw was when they were on the bus and I couldn't take it. If you are a huge fan of theirs then perhaps you would like it, anyone else, please don't waste your time or money, you'll definitely be disappointed.
