Product Description

When biotech exec Jack (Anthony Mackie, 8 Mile) blows the whistle on his greedy drug-conglomerate bosses (Woody Harrelson, Natural Born Killers, and Ellen Barkin, Sea of Love) over an insider-tradingscandal, he gets more than he bargained for. Once this playa is played, he finds himself hitting rock bottom when an old flame, Fatima (Kerry Washington, Save the Last Dance), blows back into his life with the ultimate job offer: father her child, no strings attached. Teaming up to turn the tables on corporate culture, he sets up shop as a stud-for-hire at 10 G's a pop for a bevy of wealthy lesbians. When Jack delivers the goods, even his ex's glamazon gal pals can't resist his considerable...charms. Torn between love and money, Jack chases his American Dream all the way to the bank. Butthings heat up when Jack impregnates the Mafia daughter (Monica Bellucci, The Matrix Reloaded) of anotorious boss (John Turturro, Secret Window), triggering the FBI to expose Jack's cash-cow scheme.


In a long and varied career, She Hate Me is easily one of Spike Lee's most unusual films. On the one hand, it's a drama. On the other, it's a comedy. Then there's the structure: a crazy quilt made up out of several different stories. Even the style is a patchwork incorporating animation and pseudo-documentary--in the vein of Lee's 1986 hit She's Gotta Have It. It all revolves around one John Henry "Jack" Armstrong (8 Mile's Anthony Mackie), a successful executive at a biotech company much like ImClone (the one that brought Martha Stewart down). When Jack blows the whistle and loses his job, ex-fiancée Fatima (Ray's Kerry Washington), who left him for another woman, offers the now-penniless Jack $10,000 to impregnate her. All goes well, so they set up business together, and he proceeds to impregnate countless gay women, including mafia princess Simona (Monica Bellucci). If there's one thing that keeps it all together, it's Mackie, who handles the many changes Lee puts him through with admirable aplomb. --Kathleen C. Fennessy

Customer Reviews

Spike Lee's films usually have depth and "authentic"/realistic characters BUT NOT THIS TIME.
You Can Call Me "Books"
This movie really tried to take on too many subjects. had Mr. Lee focuses on just the relationships it would have been more interesting.
Anthony Mackie is as believable an actor as Kerry Washington is an actress and their work together was magnificent!

This was a really remarkable film and I am astonished that it didn't get more critical acclaim or advertising related to the film. It's a great movie. It's not just a film about a man who goes around impregnanting lesbians as the blurb on the back of the box kinda makes the film seem. The film stars Anthony Mackie, a new actor who portrays Jack Armstrong. At the beginning of the film it seems as if Jack has got it going on. He is the vice-president of a pharmaceutical corporation, lives in a nice apartment, and is ivy league educated. He is a brother that has it all together in every department--except in the romance department. After his company goes into a downward spiral--in which he is fingered for the downfall, he lets an ex girlfriend convince him to donate his sperm to her and her girlfriend at $5,000 a piece. When his assetts are frozen and he loses his job, he feels compell to continue to sell his sperm. With his ex-girlfriend as his manager, she gets him $10,000 a pop. This film is wonderful and thought provoking. Jack gets into a bit of legal trouble and he starts to look to his religion, his family and other factors when it comes to whether or not he will continue to sell his manhood. There were several things about this film that irked me a bit, but that is why I like Spike's films because there is always something that bothers me and makes me think. When the women went into labor the scene was so over the top and they were all screaming and hollering. However, I appreciate the details in the film. For instance, when Jack was having sex with the various women, he made love to each one of them a different way. He also developed a newfound friendship with his ex-girlfriend who left him for another woman years prior. I recommend this film to anyone who wants to see a real thought provoking film. It also has a lot to do with whistleblowing and the state of the world today.

To begin, I am relieved that neither Spike nor Joie are in front of the camera like usual. I will give him one star for his creativity. He always brings that to the movie. I will give him the other star for tackling such strong content. Another character in his favor. However, he loses me with the whole flow of the movie. It seemed to be "cut and pasted" . It doesn't settle down into a story line. The editing is chaotic, the thought pattern is muddled. So there's no chance to really indentify with or connect with the character as with the other movies. As a result, it made the film hard to follow and just a screen full of Spike Lee going wild. This was far below of that he is capable of. This seemed to be a rushed project with issues that could have made two good projects versus one confusing one.The only redeeming quality comes from the alluding in my opening statement, the fact that Spike himself wasn't in front of the camera.

This movie is like 2 and a half hours long!!!


It can't decide if it wanted to be a movie about a young black

professional male blowing the whistle on an "Enron like"

organization and himself caught in the middle of it,

or just being about a brother who was down on his luck

and due to frozen assets,etc FORCED into being

the "Sperminator" to a whole bunch of "biological-clockticking"


I kinda liked the second story better.

But at the same time this movie is a bit too unrealistic.

I am trying to understand why they think that

every other lesbian couple or individual WANTS

to have a child...let alone the "old fashioned way"

(by way of the male species that is)

They need to get those statistics right before putting

it out there like that.

Then to top it these lesbians are acting more like they

are Bi-sexual and enjoying themselves in the process,

no complaints or anything..it's like they WANTED to be

"turned out" by this guy.

And worse...they pay $10,000 for this when all they had

to do was get someone from around the way, buy him

2 chicken wings and a blue soda and boom! They would have

saved all the drama and trouble..and money.

There are a few celebrity appearances such as:

John Turturro,Q-Tip,Brian Dennehey,Spike Lee's sister,

Lonetta McKey,Jim BRown,Woody Harrelson,but they don't do

much for the script other than to make this movie seem

like it's not just another "hood" movie about a guy

skeezin' on woman.

It's like this was unncessarily long to accomodate the

"Enron-like" scandal plot and the "baby making machine"

plot..they should have made it one plot and save the time

and money.

Whatever the film's real message or satire behind this messy collection of ideas may be, `She Hate Me' is definitely a Spike Lee film. There have been common threads that run through the works that Spike Lee had done in the past, and they are deeply related to racial consciousness. It is also true he has been trying to expand his perspectives and even when he shot films like `25th Hour' you will not miss the Spike Lee touch in there.

In his `She Hate Me' you can find his unmistakable touches, for example, in the jazzy music, the (occasionally used) grainy images of 16 mm film, or frequent close-ups of the actors. You can also hear his 'voices' or messages, which are as honest and candid as the ones you heard in the 80s, but what he is trying to say remains unclear from the first to the end.

Consider this. In `She Hate Me' you will meet a gentle businessman `Jack' (brilliant Anthony Mackie) working for a big pharmaceutical company, who comes to know that the data submitted to FDA were actually rigged. He becomes a `whistle blower' but in consequence he is fired.

Then this story about corrupt business jumps to a totally unexpected stage. That is, `Jack' finds his former girlfriend waiting for him at home, who is in fact a lesbian. Knowing that Jack needs money, she offers a $10,000 deal to him, in order to have a baby - well, in fact two babies, one for her and another for her lover. Now I don't think I have to write how she gets what she wants except that there are some silly cartoon-like sequences which show how insemination occur.

Some reviewers say this film, if flawed, would be at least food for thought.
