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
This movie has two James Bond connections: Sir Roger Moore, who played James Bond from 1973 to 1985 played Clifford's boss. Geri Halliwell had unsuccessfully auditioned for a role in The World Is Not Enough (1999) and in one scene, Victoria Beckham dressed up as Honey Rider from Dr. No (1962). Victoria Beckham got falsely rumored to star in a James Bond movie opposite Pierce Brosnan. 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 »
A special live song that was cut from the film is added at the end of the VHS release. 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
