Can anyone explain the plot of Spice World? Parks and Rec’s Retta joins us to try to make sense of the movie’s nonsense such as; the gigantic interior of the bus, the pregnant Asian friend, and why Ginger Spice kisses an alien on the mouth. We’ll also get into the Italian men asses scene, why Retta had a dream about George Wendt, and the possibility of a character contemplating suicide. That’s not all, tune in to find who Paul, June, Jason, and Retta would be if they were Spice Girls. Girl Power, bro!

So you think there will be a sequel done in near-realtime like Before Sunrise/Sunset called Spice Women?

More critics need to take into account how well the cast gets along.

Well, when you look at it from a difference perspective, it makes perfect sense,

Geri Halliwell kisses the Alien on the mouth.
The scene where they're all pregnant (including Geri)

Now, this following point changes the whole movie

Geri Halliwell is Chev Chelios' mother in Crank 2.

Spiceworld is actually the first Crank movie! Geri banged the alien offscreen, got pregnant via the alien and gave birth to Chev Chelios!!

That explains why the flashback scene in Crank 2, set in the 90s shows Chev as a kid, when Chev is about 40, it's the alien genes which is making him age much faster, on top of that, Chev never met his father.

I'm glad that, unlike them, I didn't have to watch this one. When I went on youtube and saw it was 9.99 I knew there was no chance I was watching this one. Sounds like I made the right call.

Also, a couple of answers as an Englishman:

"Dosh" is British slang for money.
The guy who played "Brad" is Jason Flemyng, who was in Lock, Stock & Two Smoking Barrells, Snatch, Mean Machine (2001), Stardust and lots of other things.

There was some META humor because Paul played the trailer in the mini episode and the actual episode...

Then before the episode begins he says that the studios AC is out of order and a Fan can be heard in the background. So during the entire episode I kept thinking in the SpiceWorld "I need a Fan" scene LOL

Hey, this page: http://sotcaa.org/hi...spiceworld.html

takes a look at an early rough cut of the movie, and explains about how Gary Glitter had a cameo which was cut shortly before the release of the film, as Paul said. It also reveals that Elton John DID have a line originally which was cut, rendering his appearance in the movie kind of pointless.

The Spice Girls won a joint Razzy for Worst Actress for this one. Well deserved in my opinion.

I was a Senior in high school when this movie came out, and went to it in the theater as a joke with a group of friends. My buddy Sean stood up during the scene with the aliens, and yelled- in a theater full of pre-teen girls and us- "This is TERRIBLE!! I'VE HAD IT!!!" and stormed out, yelling the whole way up the aisle.

Then he came back five minutes later with popcorn and lemon drops.

How does this still cost $9.99? It should be, at most, two dollars.

I LOVE Retta's laugh. And her lack of interest in this film.

Can we get a photoshop of Jason's face/hair on Scary Spice's body?

I've made my thoughts fairly well known in previous threads, but I will go on record once more as saying this movie is amazing. If you like non-sequitur humor, I highly recommend it.

So if the Spice Girls set up the template for girl bands you have, from left to right, the pornstar/whore, the jailbait fantasy, the classy/skeletor look alike, the lesbian, and the angry one.

I totally agree. This movie could not be more tongue in cheek. I would like to see the crew discuss more movies that tried to be good but failed (Justin and Kelly/The Vanilla Ice movie). This movie is just a romp. Nothing more. Nothing less.* June is right: watch this and enjoy it! If nothing else, it's a great pop culture reference point.

*Maybe I'm biased, though, becuase when this came out, I was 13 and listened to Spice World with my Sony portable CD player about 10 times a day.
