Spork movie scene

Savannah Stehlin is Spork.

Written and directed by debuting feature filmmaker J.B. Ghuman Jr., the 2010 independent musical comedy movie Spork is intriguingly hyped as “Glee Meets Napoleon Dynamite.” Hmmmm….

The coming-of-age film spins the tale of a frizzy-haired, pink-cheeked outcast named Spork (Savannah Stehlin, TV’s Sleeper Cell) who is trying to navigate her way through the hell that is junior high. When a school dance show provides an opportunity for Spork to show up a mean-girls gang, her trailer-park neighbor Tootsie Roll (Sydney Park) steps up to coach her with some “booty-poppin’” moves. With a little positive thinking and a lot of practice, Spork finds herself on the way to both standing out and fitting in.

Featuring a bunch of colorful, foul-mouthed musical numbers and a vintage 1990s soundtrack (which includes JJ Fad’s “SuperSonic” and 2-Live Crew’s “Get It Girl”), the unrated Spork received a limited release in U.S. theaters in May 2011, following screenings at film festivals in New York, Stockholm, Copenhagen, Melbourne, London and Hamburg, among other cities.
