Trivia / Spice World

  • Actor Allusion:
    • Meat Loaf's character saying "he would do anything for [the Girls] but he won't do that."
    • Roger Moore's character saying "There's no need for any stirring" as he is shaking a martini.
    • Victoria snarking that Geri should remove her top to awaken a young boy from a coma could be seen as one to Geri Halliwell's stint as a topless model.
  • Money, Dear Boy: Richard E. Grant has cheerfully admitted that money was his primary consideration for appearing in the film. It's hard not to suspect that it was a primary consideration for most of the other participants as well.
  • The Other Marty: Frank Bruno was the original bus driver, but he left after an argument with the girls, and was replaced with Meat Loaf.
  • So My Kids Can Watch: This was also a motivator for Grant, as his pre-teen daughter was a big fan of the Spice Girls at the time.
  • Too Soon: A mention of Princess Diana had to be edited out of the movie when she was killed in a car accident before its release.
  • Unintentional Period Piece: The Spice Girls were only around for about two years in the late 90s, so this movie automatically dates itself to that point in time when they were worldwide sensations.
  • What Could Have Been:
    • The Girls' performance of "Leader of the Gang" in Italy (the scene where the backup dancers had their asses hanging out of their costumes) was initally longer and led to a cameo appearance from Gary Glitter himself. However, before the movie was released, Glitter was infamously arrested on child porn charges. After this, everybody got together and agreed his cameo couldn't be cut from the film fast enough, though a bootleg version of the scene has made it to YouTube.
    • Jason Isaacs filmed a cameo as a snobby, pretentious author and poet, but it ended up cut. John Cleese was also offered the cameo that ended up going to Michael Barrymore.
