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’

J.B. 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.
