There is no denying that the whimsical "Spork" is an underdog story that you really want to root for. Even with its over-the-top performances, rampant quirkiness, and confrontational humor, it really abides by every expected mean girl versus misfit cliche that you can imagine. Yet with its amateur and homemade appeal and its willingness to wallow in bad taste heaven, it feels like a middle school variation of John Waters' "Hairspray" (you know, prior to the musical version). I mean that as a compliment, sort of. The film lacks a professional polish that might make it a mainstream crossover. It just seems so inexpensive, so underground, but I'm confident that was the filmmaker's intention. It embraces its badness and tackiness with zealous glee. Some people will find that outrageously entertaining, some might find the picture garish and obvious. I'll admit, I laughed in equal proportion to the amount of time I spent rolling my eyes. I might have more whole-heartedly embraced the lunacy if the screenplay had ever veered from its preordained (and very familiar) plot course. A few surprises would have been nice amidst the inventive combination of bad taste and wistfulness.

At the heart of the movie is Savannah Stehlin as Spork. Stehlin has a pleasing deadpan as the bedraggled and relatively lifeless middle school outcast. Taunted and just trying to survive, she must contend with the regular tribulations of junior high existence. There is a ruthless clique of mean girls, a sexually ambiguous love interest, and a sassy neighbor who pushes Spork to participate more fully in the world. At home, Spork lives an impoverished life with her brother and imagines being reunited with her dead mother.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful July 19, 2012
Format:DVD
I watched this because Netflix recommended it. THANK YOU, NETFLIX! I loved every moment. From the old-school video games sounds in the beginning to the mentions of The Wiz to the dance-off at the end, I was hooked. If you liked (or loved) Welcome to the Dollhouse and/or Napoleon Dynamite, this movie is for you.

I loved that the characters dressed in late 80s/early 90s garb. That doesn't mean the film is set in that era; they speak frequently of Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake.

Sure, much of the overall plot is easy to figure out, but the way it is presented is entirely unique. The fact that Spork is a hermaphrodite is certainly new. The fact she has a dong isn't, by any means, the focus of the movie. We all felt as though we were freaks at 14, didn't we?

5.0 out of 5 stars Eli Writes Review March 7, 2012
By Ellie
Format:DVD
Wow, oh wow! This is one of the quirkiest movies I have ever seen and right up my alley!

Let it be said this kind of humour isn't for everyone. It's a fine mix of "is it terrible", "is it awesome", "so terrible it IS awesome". Not everyone is willing to sit around to find out. Some people are going to love it, some are gonna hate it, and some will be left going "What did I just watch?". Which granted was my reaction at first.
That said, I enjoyed this movie more than I thought I would. From the first moments I braced myself for a theme of trying too hard to be cool and what eerily reminded me of "Napoleon Dynamite"..

On the surface this movie may seem shallow, taking a cheap shot at trying to be different and over the top. Give it a chance because while it's kind of weird, we're all kind of weird (sometimes). Embrace your closet strangeness and look for the deeper message. A truly clever movie, from the simple silly names (Betsy Byotch), the stereotypical race/gender roles, to how everything means something and works in it's own way.

In-your-face humor combined with great characters make this movie a standout among recently released independent comedies. Some shocking humor lines are meant to be taken lightly and you can tell which parts they are; while it also has emotional undertones that connect with the audience on many different levels; I sure hope they release a Director's Cut so we can see his complete vision. Overall it was an amazing movie and I have a feeling that it isn't the last we've seen from JB Ghuman.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not a film about dinner plate buffet cutlery! October 31, 2012
Format:DVD
Spork is actually American for `dork' and `loser' apparently and not a reference to a handy dinner party eating implement being part spoon and part fork i.e. `the spork' you can get a splade as well, but enough of cutlery. This is about a young girl growing up in middle America with over frizzy hair, no friends, no parents, living in a trailer park that some trash would turn their noses up at, with her red neck brother called `Spit'. As if that wasn't enough she is also a hermaphrodite so is endowed with both male and female bits.

She is relentlessly picked on or ignored in school and has a life that is as tolerable as being forced to watch community cable channel, in Russian. Yes it is that bad, but no she does have a friend in the uber cool and street wise Tootsie Roll (Sydney Park) she and her ho's are into urban street dance and taking on the Britney wannabes that are the nemesis of Sporks life called `the bee atches'.

Then a `Dance Off' is announced and Spork decides that she just has to enter it to prove she isn't a loser and to help Tootsie with the prize money. Problem is she dances as well as my dad at a wedding after 15 pints, and a whisky chaser. So Tootsie and the crew endeavour to help her.

This is really funny it is deliberately potty mouthed the whole time, it throws in loads of themes we even have a boy who's parents are gay men and he is subsequently bullied for that, it really makes life at that school seem one step below catching salmonella on the `things I really ought not to do scale'. There is lots of music not just `street' jungle etc but a fair mixture there is gratuitous choreography, explicit taxidermy and full frontal bad make up shots, oh and a De lorean makes an appearance. I really loved this little movie, it will put a smile on your face and there are some genuinely touching moments. It is not genre defining but it is definitely worth a watch - recommended.
