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 »
When the girls are in the bus on the way to the concert, after they pass a park, they go on the bridge. But if you look out the window on the next shot of Victoria driving, you can see she's still driving past the park. 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 »
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.
