This Spike Lee film examines the life of an aspiring actress in New York. She is upset by the treatment of women in the movie industry during one of her screen tests with 'QT'. Out of work and desperate for money, she decides to take a job as a phone-sex operator. Here, unlike her previous dealings with potential employers, her (female) boss is kind, caring, and sensitive. Later, she begins to get too engrossed in her work and starts to lose touch with reality, represented by her friend and neighbor, Jimmy. Written by

The monologue that Lovely reads and the camera angles in the scene where Lovely and Jimmy are in his apartment talking about acting are taken from She's Gotta Have It (1986), also directed by Spike Lee. See more »

I saw Girl 6 on HBO after it was released (I wasn't allowed to see it). At that time Girl 6 didn't really catch my attention. I never knew what phone sex was so I couldn't really understand the movie too well.I recently rented Girl 6 and was glued to the screen. I really loved the performance of Theresa Randle as the African American woman desperately in need of a job she later discovers phone sex and yadda yadda yadda. The most elaborate scenes in Girl 6 has to be her fantasies where she becomes Dorothy Dandridge in Carmen Jones, Foxy Brown, and Thelma from Good Times. A lot of people I know hates this movie but I think it was a promising Spike joint, I really enjoyed it. Not as much as Bamboozled, Do The Right Thing, Malcolm X and Clockers but I enjoyed it. From every angle Girl 6 was enjoyable, Prince (then known as The Artist Formely known as Prince) provided a great score and playwright Suzan Lori Parks made Girl 6 the slick comedy it is today.
