YMMV / Spice World

  • Big-Lipped Alligator Moment: 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.
  • Cult Classic: Mainly for Spice Girls fans - especially those who were there for the mania of their peak - and 90s pop culture aficionados.
  • "Funny Aneurysm" Moment:
    • 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.
  • Ham and Cheese:
  • Harsher in Hindsight: The Actor Allusion 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.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: 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.
  • It's Not Supposed to Win Oscars: 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.
  • Narm Charm: 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.
  • Nightmare Fuel: That scene with the aliens qualifies. They looked creepy and their voices sounded almost like the deadites from the Evil Dead trilogy. Who's idea was that? Turns into a bit of Nightmare Retardant once they start fanning out over the girls.
  • Retroactive Recognition:
  • Uncertain Audience: The Nostalgia Chick talks about how the movie is a weird mesh of kiddie jokes and adult humor.
  • WTH, Casting Agency?: Any viewer outside the demographic will laugh or weep at the sight of so many great British actors in this film.
