Stop Making Sense: 9 Craziest Music Movie Plots

#1'Spice World' (1997)

At the height of Spice Girls-mania, Spice World, a Hard Day's Night-esque film released weeks after the UK girl group's breakthrough second album of the same name, attempted to help the British group invade America. Never mind the 29% on Rotten Tomatoes; the film took in more than $100 million worldwide and solidified the fivesome as one of the biggest groups of the decade.

The film follows the Girls around London as they prepare for their first live performance at the prestigious Royal Albert Hall. Refreshingly, the girls are usually in self-deprecating mode, aware of their acting skills (or lack thereof). Craziest part: Cameos by Elton John, Elvis Costello and Who Framed Roger Rabbit? detective Bob Hoskins.
