Overview

Spike Lee directed this comedy-drama about a woman who falls into a career in phone sex. An African-American woman Theresa Randle who aspires to a career as an actress endures a number of dispiriting jobs handing out leaflets and working as a coat check girl before reaching the end of her rope at an audition with Q.T. Quentin Tarantino, a sleazy movie director. Q.T. claims that he wants to offer her a role in his next film -- but since the role requires nudity, she will have to show him her breasts first. After firing her agent, the actress is strapped for cash and is offered a job enacting sexual fantasies for men over the phone. Dubbed "Girl 6" by her employers, the actress is treated with respect by her boss Jennifer Lewis and is well-liked by her co-workers. However, she has a hard time emotionally distancing herself from her work, and she finds herself becoming infatuated with Bob Peter Berg, one of her regular callers, going so far as to set up a meeting with him. As she deals in other people's fantasies for a living, Girl 6 begins retreating into her own world of make-believe, where she can be a sexy screen siren or a butt-kicking blaxploitation star. Meanwhile, her former fiancé Isaiah Washington, who scrapes by as a shoplifter, desperately wants her to give him another chance, and her next door neighbor, a baseball card collector named Jimmy Spike Lee, keeps pestering her that she ought to be doing something more positive with her life. Girl 6's supporting cast includes Madonna as one of Girl 6's supervisors, John Turturro as her agent, and Debi Mazar as one of the other phone-sex girls; the film also features an original song score by Prince.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Brian J. Dillard
Celebrity cameos, pop culture send-ups, a bunch of stellar Prince songs, and the likable, layered lead performance of Theresa Randle are the high points of this uneven Spike Lee comedy-drama, which treats the phone sex industry with a mixture of false glamour and cautionary angst. Despite Suzan-Lori Parks' spotty screenplay, Randle gives it her all as Girl 6, a would-be actress with her head in the clouds and her butt in a cubicle talking dirty to pay the rent. Girl 6's colorful fantasies of appearing in everything from The Jeffersons to Foxy Brown give Lee the chance to strut his satirical stuff -- and provide cinematographer Malik Hassan Sayeed and production designer Ina Mayhew the opportunity to dazzle. More problematic are the nightmare sequences in which Girl 6 conflates her own emotional downfall with the plight of a little girl who's plunged into an elevator shaft. The murky drama of these scenes doesn't quite gel with the exuberance of the movie spoofs, the bawdiness of the phone-sex scenes and the soap-opera earnestness of much of the rest. Still, Randle's convincing performance provides a sense of continuity, and colorful cameos from Halle Berry, Madonna, and Quentin Tarantino keep things interesting. Naomi Campbell and Debi Mazar have fun playing two of the protagonist's heavy-breathing colleagues, while Lee himself gives one of his more credible performances as Jimmy, Girl 6's officious neighbor. Messy but likable, Girl 6 is a mixed bag.

    Sex is So Painful

    Spike Lee's foray into foray into feminism via pornography with phone sex after a sleazy director (Q.T.) asks for more than a performance showing the harsh world of show business as "Girl 6" can't differentiate between reality and fantasy anymore.

    Reality vs Fantasy

    I work in the field of Adult Entertainment , This happens to be one of the best movies ever done .Many many people get caught up in between being something they are not and somthing they really are, I Have refered this movie to many new girls and many girls who have worked in the field of fantasy artist for years . Many forget we are reg people in a reg life have husbands wifes and children , This is our job we come and go and leave our jobs just as if we were any thing else. Great job Spike you did a good job on this one ,,,,,,,
