Girl 6 1996

Girl 6

Critics Consensus

Girl 6 has a compelling star, a Prince soundtrack, and Spike Lee's vivid style - and, unfortunately, a story that's never as compelling or insightful as it needs to be.

Movie Info

Trying to make it in the acting world, a young black woman (Theresa Randle) resorts to working as a phone sex operator to pay the bills. Called Girl 6 by her new employer, she finds her work oddly fulfilling and starts getting attached to one caller, Bob (Peter Berg). While dealing with various personal problems -- such as her thief ex-husband (Isaiah Washington) wanting her back -- Girl 6 comes to the dangerous realization that it's easier to live in her fantasy work life than her real life.

  • [Randle] holds the film together as best she can with her luminous presence and dignity, but can't supply the lacking subtext, past history and motivation.

    September 23, 2008
  • There's something refreshing about the film's reckless proximity to anarchy, the stylishly imaginative cinematography and lusciously exorbitant Prince soundtrack, even if it does ring hollow when Lee tries to get serious on us.

    June 24, 2006 | Full Review…
  • Girl 6, the story of a girl and her stint in the phone sex biz, is a sloppy and problematic film, no diggity.

    March 24, 2006 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Lee's never been too hip to women's perspectives, and in Girl 6, he proves that marriage, maturity and 10 years of filmmaking haven't substantially corrected his blind spot.

    June 18, 2002 | Full Review…
  • Lee has done the impossible: He's sucked the fun out of call-in sex and replaced it with sanctimonious prattle.

    I usually like Spke Lee films... He is a highly talented director, but this film was BORING!
