'll tell ya what I want, what I really really want. I wanna, I wanna, I wanna my money back." Yes once again Hollywood has shown us that you don't need ability to act in a movie, because it is obvious that the Spicegirls have none. I went to this movie, not expecting Oscar material, but expecting that it would be so stupid that I could laugh at it. I was wrong. It was just plain bad all around. I mean, don't get me wrong there were a few good jokes in the movie, but that was it, a few. And those laughs were far between in the movie.
For starters, after sitting through 20 minutes of trailers, which in themselves were not too appealing, the movie started and for 20 minutes more, the lack of laughter continued. As a matter of fact, I almost started to cry, not becuase it was bad, but because I actually paid $6.50 to see this movie. But, I digress...back to the movie. Not only was there bad acting, but there was also a very underdeveloped script, that appears was written by one of their pre-pubescent girl fans. I say this because there were a few young girls behind me laughing hysterically at the movie, and I still can't figure out why.
However, despite the preliminary analysis, that took place within the first 20 minutes, I did see a glimmer of hope; George Wendt (Norm on Cheers) and Mark McKinney (Kids in the Hall) were both in this. My first reaction was hooray, but that quickly disappeared, as they both revealed that their acting ability was about the same, if not lower, than that of the Spice Girls. I guess their careers are sagging pretty badly.
But, there is good news...I did find a good point of this movie. Drum roll please....CLEAVAGE, and lots of it!!!! If you just want to look at pretty girls scantily clad in tight dresses then go ahead and pay the $6.50, you won't be disappointed, however, don't expect to get any more out of the movie other than seeing the effects of a wonderbra.
