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.Written by

Was that really worth it?
I'm so glad we've got the morning off.
Yeah. First time in over a month, Clifford.
Are we there yet?

The Spice Girls talk to the audience while the credits start to roll, saying things like 'Hey, look at those two in the back row snogging', and 'Hey, you - no, not you, the person behind you. . . I like your dress'. See more »
The courtroom scene differs very slightly between UK and US versions. After the girls are sentenced, the judge (Stephen Fry) says, "Call Gary Barlow," in the UK version and, "Call Hootie and the Blowfish," in the US version. See more »
The Spice Girls.......what can be said about them that hasn't already been said? Well, for starters..none of them can act. Playing themselves (albeit slightly exaggerated) seems to be a stretch. The lone shining star as far as acting is Meat Loaf, who in his role as SpiceBus driver provides comedy release without being Jar-Jarish. The fact he delivers the line "hey I love these girls, and I'd do anything for them...but I won't do that..." without blushing is priceless.
This movie has some of the cheesiest scenes in the history of film, with the aliens scene being among the worst, but when this movie hits with the goofiness, it hits well. I still laugh to this day when I think of the plastic SpiceBus jumping over the plastic London Bridge. Surprisingly, one of the best musical numbers is the cafe scene...where the girls show that they actually do have some discernible talent.
This is the best summary of the movie I can give: I hated the Spice Girls until I saw this movie, and now I have to say that I actually own a CD of theirs
