Movie Info

In this offbeat independent comedy, Spork (Savannah Stehlin) is an awkward junior high student with bad skin and worse hair. Spork has one other thing that causes her grief -- a penis. Though she lives as a girl, Spork is a hermaphrodite (hence her nickname -- "not a spoon, not a fork"), and her sexual ambiguity makes her the target of constant bullying by overwrought mean girl Becky Byotch (Rachel G. Fox) and her clique of harpies in training. Things are not much better at home, where orphaned Spork lives with her slobby brother, Spit (Rodney Eastman), and his sedentary girlfriend, Felicia (Elaine Hendrix). Things start to look up for Spork when she makes friends with the highly attitudinal Tootsie Roll (Sydney Park), who embraces her as a fellow outcast in a school of obnoxious conformists, and with the help of Tootsie Roll, overweight Asian Chunk (Kevin Chung) and cheerful Justin Timberlake fan Charlie (Michael William Arnold), Spork learns how to dance and decides to show off her new moves at the school talent show. Spork was the first feature film from actor-turned-writer/director J.B. Ghuman Jr. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

Critic Reviews for Spork

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (5) | Fresh (6) | Rotten (5)

  • A potty and potty-mouthed junior-high school musical that is by turns both energetic and slack.

    Jun 2, 2011 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • Camp often means a lack of feeling and generalized disdain; not so in "Spork," which has as much heart as "Sixteen Candles."

    May 27, 2011 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • As uplifting stories of tolerance and self-discovery go, "Spork" has a messy appeal, but it's no "Hairspray."

    May 26, 2011 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Ghuman might have managed to salvage the film from its weak script if he'd had a firmer grasp on tone, and a better melding of the mish-mash of pop culture references.

    May 24, 2011 | Full Review…
  • For all its poignancy, "Spork" never loses sight of its goal to be zesty, sharp-witted fun.

    May 19, 2011 | Rating: 4/5
  • A quirky, imaginative and outrageously funny little movie that will speak to more of us than any of us would like to admit.
