About as fulfilling as phone-sex.
Full Review | Original Score: C+
September 23, 2008
While it's often quite funny, Spike Lee's newest is really a surprisingly vivid dramatic study of an aspiring actress in moonlighting hell.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4
September 23, 2008
[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
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.
September 18, 2007
Slight and superficial, Spike Lee's look at the phone-sex industry through the life of one femme is completely from the outside.

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.

Girl 6, the story of a girl and her stint in the phone sex biz, is a sloppy and problematic film, no diggity.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
September 11, 2005
Just a slightly amusing timepasser.

I can't fault Spike Lee on this one. This is his first film where he did not get a writing credit -- and it shows.

June 18, 2002
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 5, 2002
Girl 6 is entertaining and at times quite funny. But about halfway through it seems to run out of ideas.
April 17, 2002
Spike Lee has been erratic at best, misogynist occasionally, but Girl 6 hits a new low.
May 12, 2001
Lee has done the impossible: He's sucked the fun out of call-in sex and replaced it with sanctimonious prattle.
February 14, 2001
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.
January 1, 2000
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.
January 1, 2000
Lee may have a keen sense of setting and dialogue, but his characterization is off.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
January 1, 2000
Lee draws his lines between fantasy and reality without much confidence and with only a sketchy logic.
January 1, 2000
Instead of effervescent and mercurial, the movie is simply muddled. What happened?
January 1, 2000
Strongly told stories have a way of carrying their characters along with them. But here we have an undefined character in an aimless story. Too bad.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
January 1, 2000
Erratic, at times predictable as hell, and at other times unruly and inventive.
