Baby, Posh, Sporty, Scary and Ginger—they took every bedroom wall, car stereo, candy aisle and toy store by storm. Together they made up the most famous and most popular girl group in the history of music, the Spice Girls. Even years after the British group disbanded, the entire world still gets excited whenever they are reunited (London Olympics anyone?).
At the peak of their career in 1998, the mega group released a movie, Spice World. Although the critics panned it, the film, which became a must-watch for every Spice Girls fan, inevitably became a cult classic. With the girls performing hit songs like “Spice Up Your Life," interacting with aliens, and engaging in implausible action sequences (like jumping their double-decker bus over the London bridge), what's not to like about the campy flick?
Today marks the 15th anniversary of the box office hit. To celebrate its enduring legacy, we did some research and found some little known, interesting tidbits about the movie that will viva forever. Without further adieu, here are 20 things you didn’t (but what you really, really want to) know about Spice World.
