Product Description

The big screen debut for the late 1990s phenomenon 'The Spice Girls'. A comedy thriller with the odd documentary piece, it follows the girls as they build up to a live gig at the Royal Albert Hall. As well as rehearsing for the show, the band have to deal with car chases, aliens, paparazzi, hordes of fans and a bungling documentary team getting in the way the whole time. Also included is a 45-minute video featuring exclusive behind-the-scenes interviews, plus the bonus track 'Mama', performed live at the Albert Hall.

From Amazon.co.uk

One of the reasons that the Spice Girls remain so much fun is that in the great British tradition, they don't take themselves too seriously. Like The Beatles before them, the girls are more than happy to take pot-shots at their own manufactured image, something that Spiceworld: The Movie revels in. It doesn't hurt, of course, that plenty of others are along for the ride: Richard E. Grant chews scenery as the road manager; Meat Loaf is the kindly, ever-reliable bus driver; Elvis Costello (!) makes a tongue-in-cheek cameo; and Roger Moore is... well, bizarre. The plot, as such, is merely a convenience, somehow tying together the girls' first-ever live concert, a pregnant friend, a documentary film crew, a non-Spice love story, and something or other about a tabloid photographer. But that's not the point--what matters here is a surprisingly deft touch by director Bob Spiers and a script that refuses to take anything too seriously; the result is a gentle self-parody that knows just how far to take the joke. --Randy Silver --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

By October 1997, the 'Spice Girls extravaganza' was all too familiar. In the space of a year they had become a global phenomenon. In Britain alone they had sold over 7,000,000 singles and over 1,250,000 of those sales came from 'Wannabe', which was also number one in like a million countries. It truthfully was a "Spice World"! When it came to the announcement of the follow-up to "Spice", most critics were sceptical. Surely "Spiceworld" could be nothing more than a tedious repeat of "Spice". Who could have predicted that they would be utterly mistaken?!!
Following their immense success, there was now a heightened sense of flamboyance! All the traits of the first album were now even more 'in yer face'! The opening track 'Spice Up Your Life' was worthy of its predecessor 'Wannabe', with a heavier beat and bass. The melodic figure that is heard at the beginning is overtly catchy, making for instant memorable-ity. The girls sing in unison as they invite the 'people of the world' on a journey of music and dances from around the globe, Disco is at the forefront however, and songs such as 'Kung-Fu Fighting' and 'Dancing Queen' are cited in the lyric. Following screams of 'rheeeeeeeeba', 'Hi, Ci, Ya, hold tight!', the song is over and before one can catch one's breath the great pop tune 'Stop' by Watkins/Wilson has commenced. 'Never Give Up On the Good Times' actually sound like a cover of a genuine late 70s disco hit (by Gloria Gaynor or such like), even though it is an original. The penultimate track 'Viva Forever' has to be one of the best pop tracks ever conceived, and Stannard/Rowe really should be in the song-writer's Hall of Fame based on this song alone. The melody of the chorus is first-rate, and probably the best that the group sang. The Spanish guitar might pay homage to Madonna (i.e.

Each year my daughter has a "blast from the past" gift at Christmas the spice girls movie was this years choice, it is harmless fun to be enjoyed as such so whether your new to the move or as in this case reliving your childhood this is a not to be missed opportunity to laugh, cringe and revisit your past with friends. The price is good and won't break the bank So I would say go for it it certainly cheered us up.

See how the Spice girls looked when they first started out. This is a slice of escapism. Lovely to see all the girls having fun.

The Spice Girls Phenomena reached new heights during 1997 - who could forget the iconic Union Jack at the Brits, conquering America, a smash-hit film, merchandise sponsorship and of course a brand new album. 1997 definitely belonged to the Spice Girls.

Firstly, I am a huge Spice Girls fan, so maybe this review will seem biased, but in truth, SPICEWORLD is genuinely a fantastic pop album. After listening to much of the pop music, as well as other genres from the 2000s, it's so amazing to go back to the music of the Spice Girls in the 90s and the realisation of just how fantastic their music was and still sounds - maybe, somewhat under-rated nowadays. Spiceworld, in my opinion, tops 'Spice' altogether.

As the group said at their height, after a lot of travelling and experiences, songs such as 'Spice Up Your Life' were influenced by some of the cultural places that they had visited. 'Spice Up Your Life' is a great opener for the album and a stormer of a track. As the girls once said - "It's an anthem for the world!" and guess what, that's true.

The ballads are outstanding on this album, who could forget 'Stop' the only Spice Single NOT to reach Number 1, nevertheless, it is probably the most well-known dance routine. 'Too Much' their 6th consecutive Number One hit and their 1997 Christmas Number One, which also tied in with the film in December, 1997. Personally, Too Much was probably their best song. The jazz, the lyrics and just the overall feel of the song always gives me goosebumps. And of course, 'Viva Forever' their Number 1 hit from Summer of 1998 - the single around the time of Geri's departure, which gives the song a new meaning and conveys much emotion.

This is a fantastic pop album which shows growt in the Spice Girls!

It has gone on to become one of my fave albums of all time, asd it masters many different types of pop music such as Motown, Jazz, Techno...!

The weakest track is Saturday Night Divas which is still a very good average track, the best would either have to be Stop which masters Motown and grows on you more andf more everytime you hear it, or Viva Forever which in my opinion is one of the best songs of all time! Even my dad who hate the Spice Girls loves this track!

Spice up your Life - 4/5

Stop - 5/5

Too Much - 5/5

Saturday Night Divas - 3/5

Never Give Up on the good times - 4/5

Generation X - 4/5

Do It - 5/5

Denying - 5/5

Viva forever - 5/5

Lady is a Vamp - 5/5

Overall album rating - 5/5 (while Saturday Night Divas may be skipped once in a while - stick it in your CD player you can't help but sing along to it!)
