  1. A joyous, hilarious send-up of rock star pretensions and an enchanting celebration of "girl power" in pop culture.
  2. Disarmingly, the film thus acknowledges the Spice Girls' flash-in-the-pan status and lets them kid around about their frankly synthetic career.
  3. Critic-proof, devoid of plot or acting, and quick to mock anyone who might make something of it.

    There are several non sequitur subplots woven together -- and that, along with a dearth of acting talent, is Spice World's biggest flaw.

    A promotional tool that establishes its superfluousness simply by existing, this clumsy, smirking movie has a bitter soul.

    Rarely has one movie seemed so predestined to reduce any and all attempted criticism to so many column inches of impotent gibberish.
  7. About as awful and shamelessly pandering as a fanzine movie could dare to be.

    If you take it for what it is, it is a great movie. It wasn't meant to be a masterpiece and the tongue in cheek script shows that, it was meant to be stupid and they state that multiple times during the film. Expand

    I wasn't sure what to expect from this film, but didn't care for what I got. Silly fluff, completely pointless and surprisingly boring. If they were trying to capture the spontaneity of A Hard Days Night, they failed miserably. Expand

    With The Spice Girls at the height of their popularity a movie was sadly inevitable and it was as bad as everyone expected. Fans of the pop band may get some enjoyment from it but with celebrity cameo after celebrity cameo it is a mess of a movie with very few funny moments. Expand
