In the late 1990’s, the Spice Girls were everywhere. Their songs were all over the radio, it was hard to not miss them in the media.
Then, on top of all of that media coverage, Spice World (1997) hit theaters.
Taking a page out of the playbook of the Beatles, Spice World is a revamped A Hard Days Night.
As the girls prepare for their first live concert in London, they encounter aliens, spend the night in a haunted castle and find a moment of peace in a maternity ward.
Shakespeare, it ain’t.
This film is very much a moment in time kind of film. There are some movies that can transcend their era, but this film, like A Hard Days Night, is forever stuck in its era.
Do I recommend it? If you were a pre-teen or teenage girl in the late 1990’s, then yes, because watching this film just takes us back to that time and place. If you were not, then I say no because the plot is nearly non-existent and the film is basically a feature-length music video.
