Movie Review: Raw Spice- The Unofficial Story of The Making of The Spice Girls

leave a comment »

Raw Spice, Spice GirlsSummary: This film shows how the Spice Girls were formed in 1994 and the months leading up to their first performance in front of industry writers and producers.

My Review: One of the best things about this film is that it lives up to its title. The girls are never seen with their trademark looks, but you can catch glimpses of what would become each girl’s trademark personality. You also see them as performers in training as well as regular young women.

Another positive aspect of the film is that you slowly see the girls come together as a group. You see them trying to figure out what their vocal ranges are, learning to harmonize,  dance, and live together. In fact, the most candid parts of the film are when they are at their house, because you see them let loose a little more.

A downside of the film is that it only covers a year or so of The Spice Girls’ journey. Once they do make their debut in front of the music industry people, you are left wondering what happens afterwards. The film should have shown how they got signed to a record label and how they recorded their first album Spice.

Overall, the film was interesting to watch, but it could have been better. However, I do recommend this to any old and new Spice Girl fans.

Watch the film on Hulu here.
