Editorial Reviews

Theresa Randle (BAD BOYS) delivers a breakthrough performance as a frustrated New York City actress who reluctantly takes a job as a phone sex operator. But when she discovers her natural gift for aural pleasure, she becomes a different woman to her sports memorabilia-obsessed neighbor (director Spike Lee), her romantic shoplifter ex-husband (Isaiah Washington of GREY’S ANATOMY), and an endless stream of calls from men fueled by dark and wild desires. Even if she loves being every man’s fantasy, can she ultimately handle her own reality? Quentin Tarantino, Madonna, Halle Berry, Naomi Campbell, Jenifer Lewis, Peter Berg, Debi Mazar, Michael Imperioli, John Turturro, Richard Belzer, Gretchen Mol and Ron Silver appear in this sexy comedy/drama written by Pulitzer Prize winner Suzan- Lori Parks (TOPDOG/UNDERDOG) and featuring a hot 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?!

A Spike Lee film about a struggling actress who lands a gig as a phone sex operator. Don't want to go too much into it as I don't want to spoil it for anyone, but it includes appearances by Quentin Tarantino and Madonna and the awesome soundtrack is made up of songs performed by Prince or his side projects.

Must have for any Spike Lee or Prince fan.

Bought the1996 Release of Prince "Girl 6" CD 1st, then went to see it at the Opening, Lakewood Center, CA. Like the music, buy the CD. It is good with Erotic City, Nasty Girl, 13 Kickin' tracks, "Original Soundtrack", a sad, emotional movie, the part where she went to meet a man she'd talked to, but... she waited, like perhaps he didn't know she was a pretty black woman, doing what she felt she needed to for income. We often must do things in life we abhor, but must. I judge this movie worth seeing, she was not "selling her body" nor spirit, just TCB (Taking Care of Business), so I felt empathy for her Character. This was the best "Prince" movie I've seen. Empathy is good, feeling for others, good.. I sure didn't feel like looking down on the girl, rather, felt like I wanted to comfort her, hold her, tell her, "Baby, it will be alright." But could not. I recommend this movie, and the music CD. Glad when I worked the phones, I did not have to lie or pretend. Recommend "Purple Rain" movie, Soundtrack too. -30-

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!
