Climb aboard the double decker Spice Bus and get ready for a madcap musical adventure with the sexy phenomenons of pop - the Spice Girls. An encounter with extra-terrestrials, a night in a haunted castle, and a moment of truth in a maternity ward are just a few of the escapades the endeavored upon as the Girls gear up for their first live concert at London's Royal Albert Hall.

Gary Glitter filmed a four-minute cameo appearance as himself but shortly before the film was to be released he was arrested on child porn offenses . The Spice Girls and the production team agreed that his cameo should be deleted from the final print. See more »
When the girls are marching to the obstacle course, a walkie talkie appears in Geri's hand for one shot, and is never seen before or after. See more »
As credits roll, principal actors mill around, talking 'off-character' - eg Alan Cumming complains about chestwig, Richard E Grant talks into mobile phone, saying role requires him to talk into mobile phone, Alan Cumming is referred to as 'Alan', not Piers, etc. See more »
Just what you expect from Brit-Pop low budget movie.
I was very early tweens when the Spice Girls dominated the world, and I remember the film coming out to cinemas; counting down the days till I could go see it! As a child and massive fan I found the film entertaining as it was to cracked up to be, it was all the phenomenon of the time. Looking back now it was a great time for me enjoying it and themselves as a girl group enjoying massive success and this is why I can accept why the film may not be any BAFTA hands down winner, obviously the film was never meant to be! It was written by their managers wife! And has too many more than subtle references about Britain. The acting is cheesy but no way did it tarnish any of the many important actors/comedians/singers who cameo'd in this film because as I remember Richard E. Grant saying it was just so great to be part of the experience, it really was a time-line in history. Now who cares whether he was lying or being honest we know he is an actor who gets paid big bucks, but the fact Roger Moore was in this film and Meatloaf, I don't think you can call them all sellouts. Fact is Spice Girls did make an impact on us all, this is just a bit of history left to show their mark.
