What can I say? It's simply another wild scream for attention coupled with the self indulgent crap you'd expect from the people who came to define everything we hate about the '90s. It's not the fact that the film was obviously cobbled together in half an hour as another cheap cash-in, nor the fact that the production values are non-existent but the fact that the members think so much of themselves that it's embarassing. They still think they are the centre of the universe and it makes me sick.

This film is when the public lost respect for both the film and music industries, and internet piracy began. And it's probably one of the 4 horsemen of the Apocalypse, which if this kind of drivel still gets made, is nigh upon us.

Who is this movie for? Fans of the Spice Girls surely would have preferred a better movie. Non-fans won't find much here besides eye candy. Musicals allow more extravagant dance moves and environments due to editing, but the Girls are limited to gyrating around in a fixed position. The bus doesn't make sense. Great costumes. Was '90s UK really like that? Fav scenes: Wannabe; bus jumping the bridge replaced by stunt double.

This isn't a sentence I ever thought I'd utter, but this movie is strictly inferior to Josie and the Pussycats. It's a combination of that and A Hard Day's Night without the positive aspects of either. The Spice Girls are abysmal actors, the editing is stilted and dull and there's hardly any score music, making most scenes feel unfinished. The meta framework is underthought and misguided. This could be combined with the death of Princess Di as the equivalent of Great Britain's 9/11.

As dumb as Spice World is you find yourself hardpressed not to enjoy it a bit. The Spice Girls themselves are not actors but they do a pretty darn good job of lighting up the screen and keeping you entertained.

There's this scene where the Spice World Bus jumps this bridge, and it's really awesome. I gave that scene 15 points. The other 5 points are because Posh Spice used to be kind of hot. That leaves 0 points for every other aspect of this movie.

I will never forgive my parents for making me take my little sister to see this...in the theater. I was in a public place when I saw this pile of shit. How embarrassing...I know in quite a few of my reviews, I've mentioned that particular films were the worst I've ever has the displeasure of viewing. This one takes the cake. If you don't have the common sense to stay away from this on your own...please take my advice and do not, DO NOT, see this. Also, James Bond?! Fuck!

About as good a film as a movie called “Spice World” could possibly be – probably plays better now than it would have 25 years ago as the girls themselves are more bubbly and endearing than the average ‘20s pop-star – overly derivative of the Beatles’ efforts and working best when leaning in to the surreal digressions; it’s also fun playing six degrees of British comedy with the well-stacked supporting cast (and “big bad” Moore’s empty-headed profundities are genuinely inspired and amusing).

Honestly, this had way more genuine funny-on-purpose humor than I expected - which is still only, let's say, one out of every five jokes, but 20% of a funny movie is better than a lot of attempted comedies. It would have been more successful if it stopped trying to have a plot and made the jokes more rapidfire - it's at its best when it's throwing one wacky thing at the wall after another. (And cut down the musical numbers - I know the audience expects them, but each would hit better shorter.)

After successfully ruining pop music, the cash cows that were the Spice Girls turned to film, in the hope of expanding this corruption to another art form. The result is an abomination; such a blatant, unapologetic attempt to rob the teen fans for their last dime, that the misanthropist inside of my almost want to applaud it. Slow clap.

Back in 1997 I and three friends of mine went to see this in a movie theatre (we were among the few males there, and probably only ones over 18). Three of us laughed so hard it hurt, while one of us hated every moment of the film. I see majority of people here are among the haters. Needs a proper attitude to appreciate, but as far as celebrity vehicles go, this one is unbeaten and probably unbeatable. For true connoisseurs only.

My only real complaint was not enough drugs. But that's all my own fault. With the benefit of hindsight, general audience cinema of the 90s often had this insane aesthetic program that some of us as children took entirely for granted. It's been eye-opening to revisit this and the first couple of Fast n Furious trailers (they're on the watch list).

Is it a good movie? No. Should it exist? Doubtful. But the thing is, this is so ridiculous and stupid and aware of that entirely that it somehow becomes not only watchable, but outright entertaining and even endearing by the end credits. You become lost in the absurdity, the fever-dreamness, and eventually just have to sit there realizing that this is an eternal symbol of just how insanely popular these five women were in the late 90s. They actually did this. And it's kind of cool, actually.
