Storyline

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 Tad Dibbern <DIBBERN_D@a1.mscf.upenn.edu>

Quotes

Judy, aka Girl 6: Baby, let me tell you something. You can continue to live in your little fantasy world with your baseball cards and the autographed bullshit or whatever the fuck is it you do, but me, I got to eat and pay the rent. Phone sex is acting, and if you don't like it, you can step.
Jimmy: Fuck you, you know, at least I got Willie Mays and Hank Aaron's autograph on a baseball card, you know, they're in the hall of fame.

A comedy of humiliations...not exactly inspiring
5 June 2014 | by (las vegas, nv) – See all my reviews

Theresa Randle plays a failed African-American actress in New York City who turns to phone sex for a career change. This Spike Lee effort, which he produced and directed, from a maladroit script by Suzan-Lori Parks, opens with an excruciating scene which typifies the rest: Randle, auditioning for a movie role for a questionable filmmaker (Quentin Tarantino in a cameo), is asked to remove her blouse; she hesitates, but eventually strips under pressure. Once we get a good look at her bare breasts, Randle then has a change of heart, dresses and walks off. She's a struggling modern-day actress being exploited by the oldest con game in the annals of sleazy show business, but Lee seems to think he's showing us something new (didn't he see "Fame"?). If the sequence is supposed to be funny, the punchline is sadly missing--but, as long as we get to see the woman's breasts, I guess Lee figures he's making his point. NO STARS from ****
