Did You Know?


The trailer has a couple of scenes that were cut:
  • The girls are on the bus and Mel B complains that it's hot in there. Victoria says that she needs a fan, prompting Emma to open the door and a fangirl bursts into the room and screams in delight and then leaves. This does the trick.
  • While talking to Bob Geldof, Mel B is offered a plate of h'orderves. She replies, "No, but I'll have one of these pie things" and eats one.
  • Bob Hoskins' real voice is heard in the trailer, as opposed to the final film.

When dancing to Who Do You Think You Are in the club, in one part, Mel C and Geri are holding hands jumping up and down together. In the next shot they are far apart. See more »


Posh: [after the girls hear noises in the night and after running into each other and scaring themselves, seek refuge in Victoria's room] It's pathetic, you know, that we can't even sleep in our own rooms
Sporty: Yeah, I don't know what we're making such a fuss for, it's only an old house!
Posh: A big old house
Baby: [very scared] A big old scary haunted, big old house!

Cheesy, Goofy, Silly, and lots of fun to watch
6 July 1999 | by Ace-38See all my reviews

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
