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.
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.

I would definitely recommend any Spice Girls fan to buy this and the price makes it a bargain, it's worth having just to keep a part of your childhood and when you rewatch it for the first time in so many years you will notice a lot of hidden jokes and hidden celebrity references that you just wouldn't have understood as a child.
Buy the DVD, throw on your platform boots and Union Jack dress, get the girls round and have a massive giggle-fest.
