Editors Note
Note Big-screen shenanigans from the Spice Girls, who cavort harmlessly in backstage vignettes whilst changing costumes, mugging in the kitschy environs of their Union Jack tour bus (piloted by no less significant a personage than Meat Loaf), and evading a bothersome paparazzo. Trashy, guilty fun, littered with celebrity cameos.

Review A bright and breezy movie that's as timely but evanescent as the Cool Britannia culture it celebrates, "Spice World" will delight the Fab Five's pre-pubescent fans, recall fond memories of the '60s to those who actually lived through them, and be forgotten within six months. More Austin Powers-like retro than the genuinely groundbreaking "A Hard Day's Night" it apes...Picture is not so much a story as a series of musical opportunities dotted with celeb cameos, following the Spices through five days leading up to their first live gig in London's Royal Albert Hall. En route, the movie takes potshots at the tabloid press, the capital's glitterati and the media in general, as well as stirring in beaucoup filmic refs to amuse oldsters while the young'uns are transfixed by the girls and their music...Like the film as a whole, the music segs are simply pacily cut --- a revolutionary enough decision in today's market and one that helps to make the movie more than just an extended musicvideo. Direction by TV vet Bob Spiers ("Fawlty Towers," "Absolutely Fabulous") is unfussy and to the point...Kate Carin's costumes are always eye-filling and unashamedly sexy.

Review Arguably, the Spice Girls are to the 1990s what ABBA was to the 1970s. Despite their radically different compositions, both groups have a lot in common. Just like ABBA twenty years ago, the Spice Girls are pop wonders who manage to rise consistently to the top of the music charts despite the essential vapidity of their hits. And, although they get very little respect from "serious" music lovers, they continue to sell albums at an alarming rate...Spice World is a vanity project -- an ego trip designed to show the five girls in the best possible light and give them a chance to perform about 14 numbers on-screen. As a comedy, it's weak, because most of the jokes are obvious and not especially funny. As a satire, it's weaker, because the screenplay never takes any chances and all of the mini parodies are safe, silly, and creatively lifeless. The film isn't even a particularly good musical, because the songs are so inane. The only people who are likely to be able to sit through Spice World without casting numerous yearning glances at the exit are those who number themselves among the group's legion of die-hard fans. Ultimately, this film has too much Spice and not enough flavoring.
