British musical group The Spice Girls are disillusioned by fame. As they make their way around London in a double-decker tour bus and prepare for their biggest concert yet at Albert Hall, they are constantly dogged by a documentary filmmaker (Allan Cumming) and a photographer dispatched by a malicious newspaper owner (Barry Humphries) who seeks to ruin their reputation.

Before their big performance, the stress of all this leads to an argument between the girls and their manager (Richard Grant), ending with them storming off.
Individually, each one of them reflects on their journey from poverty to pop stars, and eventually all meet by chance in front of an abandoned pub. Having reconciled, they take their pregnant friend Nicole out dancing, and she begins to go into labor.
They decide to not perform at Albert Hall until Nicola gives birth. On the day of the show, she does. But the girls' bus driver is missing, causing one of the girls - Victoria - to take control of the bus, racing across London to make it to the stage on time.
Essentially, this is a 90-minute music video from The Spice Girls, the British girl group who were popping up just about everywhere – even the big screen – in the late 90's. The girls go through a whole mess of campy, over-the-top shenanigans including an alien encounter, dance boot camp and delivering a baby all while trying to evade the bothersome paparazzi. Most of the scenes are set to their music, of course. The movie is also littered with celebrity cameos including Elvis Costello, Bob Hoskins, Jonathan Ross, and Elton John. Richard E. Grant plays the group's tyrannical manager and Meat Loaf is their Union Jack tour bus driver.
