Jump on the Union Jack tour bus -- helmed by Meat Loaf, of course -- and ride along with the Spice Girls as they prepare to take the stage at London's Royal Albert Hall in this candy-coated, cameo-packed nod to A Hard Day's Night. But first, the girls will have to fend off a scheming newspaper owner (Barry Humphries), an in-your-face filmmaker (Alan Cumming) and countless other pests who want to cash in on their pop superstar status.

Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this movie is essentially an ad for the Spice Girls music. Parents should also know that the women in the band play out some old but sexualized stereotypes: Especially disturbing is the Baby Spice look, which is essentially crazy platform boots and pink baby-doll lingerie. There's mild intensity when a newspaper editor attempts to undermine the Spice Girls' careers.
- Sexual Content
- Half-naked male dancers practice with the women and later appear in suits with the butt cut out. An alien gropes Mel B.'s breast. It's implied that Clifford and his employee have sex.
- Victoria and two tweens fall into the river and must be saved. Emma slaps Victoria. A paparazzo runs from the girls and trips and hits his head.
- One use of "ass."
- Social Behavior
- Not applicable
- Mel C. wears Adidas everything, the girls sing about Wonderbras, and the bus passes signs for Fosters Beer, TDK, and Sanyo.
- Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol
- Movie producers drink wine and other liquor at various meetings. Clifford drinks and smokes a cigarette.
- Age appropriate
