Spork is a film directed by J.B. Ghuman Jr. and features Savannah Stehlin, Sydney Park, Rachel G. Fox, Michael William Arnold, Oana Gregory, Beth Grant, Elaine Hendrix, Yeardley Smith, Rodney Eastman, Keith David and Richard Riehle. The screenwriter was J.B. Ghuman Jr and the production was by Christopher Racster, Chad Allen, Honey Labrador and Geric Frost.
Spork is about a 14-year-old girl. She is unpopular, mistreated by her classmates, and very soft-spoken. Her next-door neighbor and best friend, known as Tootsie Roll, is planning on entering the school Dance-Off to win $236 which she would use to visit her father in prison. During a hair-product-related dancing accident, Tootsie Roll injures her ankle and can no longer compete. Spork rises to the occasion and surprises the whole school by signing up for the Dance-Off.
The film touches on many controversial issues such as racism, sexism, classism, homophobia, and gender roles on a serious level and keeps an air of comedic value. Spork is also notable for featuring young actors playing their own ages (around 12–14 years old), instead of older teen actors made to look young. It is rare, but not unrealistic, that young actors are seen handling such adult themes and language.
The period in which the film is set is unclear. Spork and Tootsie Roll listen to hip-hop songs from the early 1990s and wear 1990s fashion, yet the antagonist, Betsy Byotch, and her friends wear 1980s garb and listening to 80s music (though they are also fans of Britney Spears). The character of Charlie is obsessed with Justin Timberlake, whose career began in the mid–1990's. There is also a mention by "Besty Beyotch" that there are pictures from a few years ago of "Loosie Goosie" circa 1998.
