* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: The girls stop the bus to pee in the bushes and run into a crew of aliens who want tickets to their show but it's sold out. The girls are completely unfazed by this and even sign autographs for the aliens.
* CultClassic: Mainly for Music/SpiceGirls fans - especially those who were there for the mania of their peak - and 90s pop culture aficionados.
* ForcedMeme: While [[SarcasmMode their tongues are clearly in their cheeks]] when they say it, the people hipster-ironically referring to the film as a "cinematic masterpiece" can feel like they're trying too hard to those who don't find it "bad enough" to be SoBadItsGood, especially since a lot of the nostalgic appeal appears to be sincere and the movie itself is already not taking itself too seriously.
* FunnyAneurysmMoment:
** The sisterly conflict between Geri and Mel B (Geri possibly deliberately wearing Mel's boots and them arguing over a chess game) are toned down versions of the real-life personality clashes the two often had.
** The girls are annoyed at their manager for not giving them time off, to the point where they (temporarily) walk out of their tour. The group would later sack their manager, partially for this reason.
* HamAndCheese:
** Creator/RichardEGrant can say he only did this film [[MoneyDearBoy for the money]] and [[SoMyKidsCanWatch for his daughter]], but he was clearly having a good time doing it.
** Michael Barrymore as dance instructor Mr. Step, [[ChewingTheScenery gorging himself on the scenery just for kicks]].
* HarsherInHindsight: The ActorAllusion references to Ginger's topless model days aren't quite as funny after her surgery to remove a benign tumour. Halliwell avidly supports breast cancer charities.
* HilariousInHindsight: The scene where the girls imagine what they'd be like as mothers, now that all of the girls have their own children. Especially the case with Victoria Beckham, who says "Thank God for boarding school" in this scene, but by all accounts is a very hands-on mother to her four kids.
* ItsNotSupposedToWinOscars: In the ''Giving You Everything'' documentary, Victoria said that nobody was expecting to win Oscars for the film, they were just having a good time.
* NarmCharm: No one disputes it's a terrible movie but for nostalgic reasons, any young'un now cannibalizing their youth in search of amusement can still reasonably enjoy the trip back through the 90s with the girls.
* NightmareFuel: That scene with the aliens qualifies. They looked creepy and their voices sounded almost like the deadites from the ''Franchise/EvilDead'' trilogy. Whose idea was that? Turns into a bit of NightmareRetardant once they start fanning out over the girls.
* RetroactiveRecognition:
** [[Series/TheWire Jimmy McNulty is the photographer]].
** [[Series/{{Torchwood}} Toshiko Soto]] is the girl's pregnant friend.
* SoBadItsGood: Perhaps not as notorious as ''Film/TheRoom'' or ''Film/PlanNineFromOuterSpace'' (to the point that it can almost feel like a ForcedMeme), but it's not uncommon for people in TheNewTens to jokingly refer to this movie as a "cinematic masterpiece," usually accompanied by [[NotHelpingYourCase a purposefully unflattering clip]].
* UncertainAudience: WebVideo/TheNostalgiaChick comments on how she has no idea who it was being marketed towards, given that some of the jokes were clearly meant for adults (such as men in thongs and Victoria suggesting that Geri take her top off for a young boy in the hospital), but other jokes seemed more geared for kids, or at least would be unfunny to adults. Of course, you could make much the same point about the band themselves, so maybe the target audience was just "Spice Girls fans".
* WTHCastingAgency: Any viewer outside the demographic will laugh or weep at the sight of so many great British actors in this film.
