Thoughts On The 21st Anniversary Of The Release Of Spice World

21 years ago yesterday, Spice World hit theaters.

My generation’s answer to The Beatles 1964 film A Hard Day’s Night, the film followed The Spice Girls as they traveled around London in the most spectacular tour bus ever seen, have a variety of wacky experiences and performed for their fans.

There are some movies that are intellectually stimulating and/or appeal to a wide variety of audience members. This film, however, is not one of them. While it doesn’t take itself too seriously, it is just really one very long music video meant to appeal to the fans of the group. It doesn’t help that the members of group are just playing themselves and are far from trained actors.

There are some films that are timeless and some that are dated. Spice World is dated.

Even so, the fact that this film is 21 makes me feel like time has gone by too fast. If it were a human being, it would be of age to drink legally. Happy Birthday Spice World.
