Britain's chart-topping all-girl quintet, The Spice Girls, makes the jump to screen stardom with a glitzy musical that could have been called "A Hard Day's Spice." Follow Sporty, Scary, Posh, Ginger and Baby Spice through a "typical" series of adventures-from an alien encounter and a best friend's going into labor to a media mogul out to squash "Girl Power"-as they prepare for a concert at London's Royal Albert Hall. With Richard E. Grant, and cameos by Roger Moore, Elton John, Elvis Costello. 93 min. Widescreen (Enhanced); Soundtracks: English Dolby Digital 5.1, French Dolby Digital 5.1, Dolby Digital stereo; bonus musical performace; theatrical trailer.
Big-screen shenanigans from the Spice Girls, who cavort harmlessly in backstage vignettes whilst changing costumes, mugging in the kitschy environs of their Union Jack tour bus (piloted by no less significant a personage than Meat Loaf), and evading a bothersome paparazzo. Trashy, guilty fun, littered with celebrity cameos. Director Bob Spiers Star Spice Girls, Richard E.
