World" is about as close as you can come to absolutely nothing
and still manage to have a product to show on the screen.
It's a limp and dreary experience involving five bratty
women called the Spice Girls, who spend most of the movie
in a bus talking about their careers while their driver
is taking them to several places so they can sing to sold-out
girls talk too much for their own good. By the time they
do sing, they are so sidetracked from talking in the bus
that they can't even successfully lip-synch their own, rotten
World" is no film; it's a nightmare which displays in full
form that you don't need talent to be in a movie. People
should take this film as an example of what not to do when
you're making a motion picture. There's absolutely no plot
to the film. All it does is take five boring women and put
them in a room where they can talk about their boring lives.
In fact, if I were a Spice Girl, and if this is how dull
the life of a Spice Girl really is, I would immediately
break up with them and change my career.
I totally hated this movie! Hated the chatty Spice Girls,
hated the stupid music, hated the ridiculous dialogue, hated
everything about it. Hated it. I'm not trying to insult
the Spice Girls, because I'm sure some people like them,
and I imagine they do have a certain amount of talent. Unfortunately,
they don't know how to use it in movies.
film is a relapse in their career, and they will eventually
recover from it. Hopefully, they'll recover faster than
