Editorial Reviews

Theresa Randle (Malcolm X Bad Boys II) delivers a breakthrough performance as a frustrated New York City actor who reluctantly takes a job as a phone sex operator. Here unlike her previous dealings with potential employers her (female) boss is kind caring and sensitive. She ends up too engrossed in her work and starts to lose touch with reality as she becomes a different woman to both her friend and neighbor (Emmy Award Winning Filmmaker Spike Lee) and her romantic shoplifting ex-husband (Isaiah Washington of "Grey's Anatomy.") Quentin Tarantino Madonna Halle Berry Naomi Campbell Jenifer Lewis Peter Berg Debi Mazar Michael Imperioli John Turturro Richard Belzer Gretchen Mol and Ron Silver all appear in this sexy comedy/drama written by Pulitzer Prize winner Suzan-Lori Parks (Topdog/Underdog) and featuring a soundtrack of hits by Prince.

1996: Spike Lee directed this movie believe it or not. He wrote the screenplay and performed in the role of the wise, comforting and dreamer neighboor in Lovely's apartment. Theresa Randle of the Bad Boys film, stars as Lovely, or the eponymous Girl 6. When I saw this film, I could not believe it was a Spike Lee film, but his presence in the movie and his signature urban themes are distinctly marked in this movie. The film deals with an aspiring actress who is coaxed into working as a phone sex operator. Despite the good money it pays, it becomes messy and dangerous for her after a client becomes insanely obscessed with her. Her relationship with her (boyfriend ? husband ?) is in jeopardy due to her choice of work. Although clearly this movie attempts to be serious, there are many comic features written into many of the scenes, particularily the sordid, bizarre and outrageous sexual fantasies of the clients. The phone sex scenes that play out between the operators and their clients are hilarious! The "fantasy sequences" in which Lovely acts out various roles from television and film are also hilarious. These roles are: Lovely as Dorothy Dandridge in Carmen Jones, as the daughter in the old sitcom The Jeffersons, as Pam Grier's Foxy Brown in 70's exploitation movies and as a 30's or 40's Hollywood Golden Age diva towards the end of the film shot in black and white.Guest stars abound in this witty urban comic drama. Among them Madonna, as a phone sex operator instructor who is giving the girls tips and advice via a monitor, Halle Barry in a brief interview scene, and even Quentin Terentino shows up in the film. I don't know whether to laugh non stop at one of the silliest films ever made by Spike Lee or to wonder at the subtle signficance of its theme.Read more ›

One of my favourite films of all time. There's something about Spike Lee's *Girl 6* that's particularly stuck with me. In short, it's about a phone-sex agency and the people that work there. Theresa Randle plays Girl 6 brilliantly as a woman of great strength and tenderness. Like the film itself, very funny, yet painfully gritty. A surprisingly good performance from Naomi Campbell as Girl 75. An excellent cameo from Madonna playing the aging scarlet-woman with too much makeup spouting sexual profanitys - typecast or what! And the cherry-moon on the cake is the ace use of Prince music running through the film... *How Come U Don't Call Me Anymore* (which was a rare track back then), *HouseQuake*, *17 Days* and *Hot Thing* (which plays during Madge's monologue) being the musical highlights, for me. Oh, and Mr Lee himself is pretty good in it too... I really hope he gets around to releasing this on DVD... soon?!

Most of the filmgoing people I know say that this is Spike Lee's worst movie...I guess that they never saw "She's Gotta Have It". I have to say that I loved this one, and in my opinion, it was better than that overrated "Do The Right Thing"! The cinematography was colorful and dynamic and Theresa Randle ( a very beautiful and talented actress who usually pick out horrible movies to be featured in)was remarkable! She had the the voice and the spunk to play this character to a "T"! Normally, I get tired of watching Spike Lee in his own movies..but he was perfect as the nerdy, scrubbish Jimmy! The phone sex conversations were hilarious! (I loved the part where the husband was telling his wife and a phone sex operator about his fantasy of having a menage' trois) There were also surprising cameos from great faces in showbusiness today! Check out Madonna as a strip club owner and Quentin Tarrantino as the demanding director! And to top it off, it had THE BEST SOUNDTRACK any movie could ever have! It was brillant for Spike to have the Emperor of sexy music *yes, I mean Prince* to bless this feature with his sound! I wasn't surprised to see the Amazonian.com people giving this movie the ratings that it got. It's definantly not for people who are looking for the usual controversial Spike Lee movie. But for this girl, it's a smooth, sexy flick with panache!

Format: DVD
'girl 6' is one of the few spike lee films that i appreciate wholly and in parts.

the first part is suzan-lori parks' screenplay. there are times when it feels like a goodly portion of the dialogue is being written as the actors speak the lines. her words are that good. the situation which her heroine finds herself in is one that any performer has dealt with. she somehow manages to plunge the depths of human experience and pull herself up to reconnect with her ambitions to become a working actress without compromise.

the second is theresa randle's performance as girl 6. 6 (or judy) has a lot of issues, a great deal of baggage to carry and randle doesn't hold back in revealing any of 6's complexity. she is vain, she is overly romantic, she is strong and she, as a character, is in great hands with randle. i can always turn to this film and jump in because randle's performance is that finely crafted and inviting. a sad postscript is that this fabulous actress hasn't had much to do since this film was released in 1996.

the third is the supporting cast, filled with many recognizable faces such as isiah washington, jenifer lewis, gretchen mol, naomi campbell, richard belzer, madonna, michael imperioli, debi mazar, debra wilson, quentin tarantino, john turturro and lee himself. many of these actors had worked or continue to work with lee on his joints. the cast is an embarassment of riches and each actor comes through.

the fourth is the soundtrack made up of prince tunes. lee uses the music well and the songs are some of the best prince recorded, especially 'erotic city', 'how come u don't call me...' and 'nothing compares to u'. not to mention the sneak-ins of prince-produced classic like 'nasty girl' and 'screams of passion'.
