Junior high isn't easy for anyone—especially if you're a frizzy-haired, pink-cheeked hermaphrodite like Spork. Neither a spoon, nor a fork, but rocking elements of both utensils, Spork could use a little smidgen of magic to make her life sparkle. Raised in a trailer park by her well-intentioned white trash older brother after her mom's death, she is relentlessly taunted by the antics of Betsy Byotch's gaggle of mean girls. But when her new-best-friend neighbor Tootsie Roll breaks her leg and can't compete for the cash prize in the junior talent show, Spork gets schooled in the freshest of early '90s booty-poppin' moves by Tootsie and her pals. A litany of fellow outcasts step it up along the way to give Spork the edge she needs, including a girl named Chunk and Justin Timberlake-obsessed Charlie.
Littered with colorful dialogue from a tween cast with mouths beyond their years, this '80s-inspired, candy-coated black comedy and its cast of misfits prove that anyone can fit in as long as you make a place for yourself. Breakout performances by Savannah Stehlin as Spork and Sydney Park as the electrifying Tootsie Roll are the cherry on top of actor J.B. Ghuman, Jr.'s directorial debut.
