The Spice Girls (not quite the Beatles) try to make their Albert Hall gig in the face of mounting pressure from the press, their manager (Grant) and, in a literal sense, their best friend Nicola (Mori). Spiers' pseudo-documentary bubble-and-squeak allows the girls to dress up, dress down, change identities, ride around in a Union Jack bus, rub shoulders with a large cameo cast, and indulge in vacuous banter. Help!

Spice World is an odd one. In one way it's a forgettable pop flop centred around a girl band's 15 seconds (OK, several years) of fame. In another it's a fascinating insight into a specific moment of London's culture and history, dotted with famous and talented faces. Ok, it's probably somewhere in the middle, but after a cocktail or two it's really not as bad as you might expect. There's humour, emotion and a touching storyline about being loyal to your friendships and true to your roots. It happily pokes fun at itself and there are some hilarious moments in there. There's a reason it didn't win any Oscars, but don't write it off without experiencing its zaniness!
