Spork

(2011)

From writer-director J.B. Ghuman Jr. comes the colorful and foul-mouthed feature musical comedy SPORK, a film about a frizzy-haired, pink-cheeked outcast named Spork who is trying to navigate her way through the annuls of junior high. When a school dance show provides a chance for Spork to show up a mean girls gang, her trailer-park neighbor steps up to coach her with some “booty-poppin” moves.

EXCLUSIVE: J.B. Ghuman Jr. Talks ‘Spork’

Ghuman Jr. Talks Spork Amongst all the heated summer bombast experienced at the Cineplex every year, one or two smaller films usually break through, shinning like a diamond in a dumpster piled high with action clichés, wobbly sequels, and one too many superheroes to care about. This summer's one true surprise comes in a small independently produced musical comedy called Spork, helmed by actor-turned-director J.B. Ghuman Jr..

Spork is a coming-of-age tale that follows a young orphaned girl (Savannah Stehlin) growing up with her brother in an Airstream trailer. An outcast in Junior High, Spork joins forces with a local dance crew to take down a 'mean girls' gang lead by Betsy Byotch (Rachel G. Fox). It's an odd, colorful ode to the musical comedies of the 80s and early 90s, strapped with a unique soundtrack and a quirky charm that is sure to win over even the most hardened summer-hating Cinefile, who truly believes this year's release slate is devoid of anything new.
