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.

Sir Elton John appeared in this movie. The girls are friends with him in real-life. In 1997, The Spice Girls sang "Don't Go Breaking My Heart" with Sir Elton John on his television event An Audience with Elton John (1997). See more »
In the club scene when the Girls are dancing and Nicola is watching them, Emma is holding a drink when they go down on the floor to dance, and then it disappears when she's seen dancing, then the drink reappears, then disappears in the very next shot, reappears, disappears once more, and then she has it again when Nicola starts to go into labor, then Emma hands it to a stranger as they run to get Nicola.

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.
