Climb aboard the double decker Spice Bus and get ready for a madcap musical movie adventure with the sexy phenomena of pop - the Spice Girls. A humorous 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 funny escapades you'll enjoy as the girls gear up for their first live concert at London's Royal Albert Hall. Emma, Victoria, Mel B, Geri and Mel C star with George Wendt, Richard E. Grant, Roger Moore and Meat Loaf in this hip and sassy movie. There are performances of the Spice Girls mega-hits plus new songs, and featured cameo appearances by Elton John, Elvis Costello and more!

There's mild intensity when a newspaper editor attempts to undermine the Spice Girls' careers.
