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
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.
Victoria's position in the bed changes twice. See more »
[the girls are in the woods at night and frightened]
Something just pushed past me, and I'm not joking!
Probably one of those disgusting beasts want to eat you.
[the girls hear a loud, strange noise that sounds like a fart]
Oh pack it in, Mel!
It wasn't me!

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 »
When I was seven and this movie came out, it was the biggest thing around. Everyone wanted to be the Spice Girls. After they split up and weren't cool anymore, everyone forgot about the movie. But ho, ho, what's this? Years later, here I am cleaning out my old Disney and Barney videos and stumble across my old friend that I used to watch everyday. Even at my old age of fifteen, never failed to crack me up.
Obviously, this isn't meant to be a contender for Oscars. Anyone can see that. But I can't find much to hate about a movie that's practically the visual to go along with the song "Girls just wanna have fun." That's all it is, fun. And a lot of good fun at that. It's just a guilty pleasure, and it's so much fun to watch it with old friends singing into hair brushes and wearing feather boas. You just need to keep in mind that it was publicity for their new record and it's not meant to be one of those heavy movies you over-analyze. Recommendation: This movie is much funner when you watch it jumping up and down on a couch like a seven year old.
