Spice World is a 1997 British musical comedy film directed by Bob Spiers, written by Kim Fuller and Jamie Curtis, and starring the best-selling pop music girl group the Spice Girls. The lighthearted comedy, made in a similar vein to The Beatles’ A Hard Day’s Night, depicts fictional events leading up to a major concert at London’s Royal Albert Hall, liberally interspersed with dream sequences and flashbacks as well as surreal moments and humorous asides.
The film premiered on 15 December 1997 and was released in British cinemas on Boxing Day, followed by the release in North America on 23 January 1998.
The movie took in US$75 million dollars at the worldwide box office, including $29,247,405 in the U.S
Despite being a commercial success, the film was widely panned by critics. The Spice Girls each won the award for Worst Actress at the 1998 Golden Raspberry Awards. It also received nominations for Worst Picture, Worst New Star (Spice Girls), Worst Supporting Actor (Roger Moore), Worst Screenplay, Worst Screen Couple (“any combination of two people, body parts or fashion accessories”) and Worst Original Song (“Too Much”). The film aggregator website, Rotten Tomatoes gave Spice World a “rotten’” rating of 27%. AllMovie gave it a 2/5 stars.
