Synopsis by Mark Deming
In this offbeat independent comedy, Spork (Savannah Stehlin) is an awkward junior high student with bad skin and worse hair. Spork has one other thing that causes her grief -- a penis. Though she lives as a girl, Spork is a hermaphrodite (hence her nickname -- "not a spoon, not a fork"), and her sexual ambiguity makes her the target of constant bullying by overwrought mean girl Becky Byotch (Rachel G. Fox) and her clique of harpies in training. Things are not much better at home, where orphaned Spork lives with her slobby brother, Spit (Rodney Eastman), and his sedentary girlfriend, Felicia (Elaine Hendrix). Things start to look up for Spork when she makes friends with the highly attitudinal Tootsie Roll (Sydney Park), who embraces her as a fellow outcast in a school of obnoxious conformists, and with the help of Tootsie Roll, overweight Asian Chunk (Kevin Chung) and cheerful Justin Timberlake fan Charlie (Michael William Arnold), Spork learns how to dance and decides to show off her new moves at the school talent show. Spork was the first feature film from actor-turned-writer/director J.B. Ghuman Jr.
