Storyline

A colorful and foul-mouthed feature musical comedy.A film about a frizzy-haired, pink-cheeked outcast named Spork who is trying to navigate her way through the annals of junior high. When a school dance show provides a chance for Spork to show up a mean girls gang, her trailer-park neighbor steps up to coach her with some "booty-poppin" moves. Featuring a vintage 90's soundtrack (that includes 2-Live Crew, JJ Fad's "SuperSonic," Dimples T's "Get It Girl"), a score by Casey James and the Staypuft Kid; and extended school hall dance sequences, Spork is a film about standing out and fitting in.

Everything about Spork is just plain fantastic
5 August 2012 | by (Whiteaker) – See all my reviews

Spork succeeds in projecting the dream like way in which any of us who have actually gone through middle school and now have some life experience under our belt to reflect upon it. Do we remember the mundane hour by hour report of what actually took place or just the highlights with just a little bit of narrative embellishment? If Spork were an authentic, realistic, middle school tale, nobody would watch it. Thankfully it's not.

It would be easy to say that this is the girl version of Napoleon Dynamite, but it's actually a more watchable film than Napoleon's offering.

Savannah Stehlin stars as the frizzy haired middle school girl with a ding a ling named Spork. Spork lives in the tiniest of trailers with her dirty faced older brother and numbs the pain of her teased existence by repeatedly watching The Wiz. One day she stands up against the snotty girl gang that is picking on her and gains the attention of her more outgoing trailer park neighbor, and an equally teased undersized boy in her class.

As the story plays out, you learn that some of these characters are missing key components to enjoying a well balanced life. This is handled in a manner that neither makes fun of the character nor talks down to the audience, and is reminiscent of John Hughs 1980′s teen dramedies. There are some singing and dancing numbers that could have easily come off as ridiculous and unbelievable, but again, it's presented in way that makes the viewer feel as if they are a part of the fun.

Part of what makes the musical scenes work so well is the collaboration between director J.B Guhman Jr., film editor Philip J. Bartell, art director Nathan Carden, composer Timothy Kiefer, and co-composers Casey James and the Staypuff Kid. If just one of these individuals had not brought their A game, it could have been messy.

If you only see one teenage hermaphrodite coming of age movie this year, make it Spork.
