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!

Critics Consensus: Spice World's lack of cohesive plot will likely lose most viewers, but for fans of the titular girl group there's more than enough fun to be had in their wacky -- albeit superficial -- whirlwind of an adventure.

Loony mockumentary captures Spice Girl fever.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this movie is essentially an ad for the Spice Girls music. Parents should also know that the women in the band play out some old but sexualized stereotypes: Especially disturbing is the Baby Spice look, which is essentially crazy platform boots and pink baby-doll lingerie. There's mild intensity when a newspaper editor attempts to undermine the Spice Girls' careers.
