By K. Harris HALL OF FAMETOP 100 REVIEWER on January 21, 2012
Format: DVD
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.

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?

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.

I can't decide what I love more about this movie: that it had child actors who looked like real, non-Hollywood children, or that it had the balls to let them curse and bring up controversial subjects without shame.

If you haven't seen it, I should warn you that it's a weird taste. If you look at it with a critical, "this is gonna suck" stance, then you'll probably get what you're expecting. The effects are nothing special and this is undeniably a low-budget movie, but the meaning holds so much deep symbolism that I'm not surprised it didn't come from Disney or any other big company.

I love Disney company -don't get me wrong- but it's been trying for so long to milk its budget from movies about outcasts. And Disney approaches it in such a family-friendly way that the "outcasts" are supposed to be identifiable to everybody -which defeats the purpose! Spork, on the other hand, is a white girl with curly brown hair and glasses. She doesn't know what it's like to be different from that, and the movie doesn't try to say "Oh, if you're black or gay, you can just pretend your situation is like her!" No, there are black characters, and a boy with two dads, and they're different than her. But they handle their situations differently, which shows that you can't just make one different character and expect everyone to relate. Side note -she's a hermaphrodite, but the movie doesn't try to teach you everything about what that means. Instead, it's just another thing that makes her stand out.

She has to deal with her family issues, making friends, and being herself. The movie doesn't try to make her prettier (cough -Grease- cough), take away her glasses, or make her dress differently.
