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.

[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.
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.
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.
Lee has done the impossible: He's sucked the fun out of call-in sex and replaced it with sanctimonious prattle.
While Lee is a skillful director, he's also more coldly analytical than emotional, and it is not his style to get us to feel for this woman as much as we should.
Mr. Lee isn't as successful at shaping a story around Girl 6, but enjoying her company is all his slender, sunny film really tries to do.
About as fulfilling as phone-sex.
While it's often quite funny, Spike Lee's newest is really a surprisingly vivid dramatic study of an aspiring actress in moonlighting hell.
Lee is back to his independent roots, doesn't have an axe to grind and just enjoys playing with the camera and letting the actors, especially Randle, do the right thing.
Slight and superficial, Spike Lee's look at the phone-sex industry through the life of one femme is completely from the outside.
Girl 6, the story of a girl and her stint in the phone sex biz, is a sloppy and problematic film, no diggity.
Just a slightly amusing timepasser.
I usually like Spke Lee films... He is a highly talented director, but this film was BORING!
A unique movie with a great cast.
