The Operator, 1 DVD, 97 minutes
Gary Wheelan, avocat à Dallas, travaille sur le procès de sa carrière. Il a tout : une épouse belle et aimante, une jolie maison, une voiture à la mode et une carrière prometteuse. Il incarne l'archétype du rêve américain à l'exception de ses nombreuses conquêtes, ses dettes et un problème croissant de jeu. Tout bascule, lorsqu'au téléphone, on lui passe le mauvais correspondant et qu'il décide de passer ses nerfs sur l'opératrice. Celle-ci va se venger, démolir sa vie et en faire un véritable cauchemar...

The main character Gary, is a married (to Miller) lawyer who is also a bedroom player. The film starts with him getting caught in bed with a blonde woman (possibly the one on the DVD cover, if it's not, that chick's not in the movie at all), by a shotgun toting husband. His car windows are blown out and he runs away naked through the streets. This is easily the most entertaining part of the film. The lawyer is the type who can walk by a much younger female work colleague and say "dinner tonight" and she'll readily agree smiling to herself with a smug look on her face while the attractive girl sitting beside her looks on disappointed she wasn't chosen, but you know will say yes when asked tomorrow. That's one of the misses of the film, I didn't buy that at all. Gary's not hideous, but he's not exactly an attractive guy either, he doesn't really ooze irresistible to women for the viewer. He's a lawyer and probably makes good money, so the fact Miller's character married him is maybe plausible, but not the fact all these other women are throwing themselves at him. Anyway, while trying to talk to some guy in another city with the help of directory assistance, he becomes more and more annoyed each time he dials the number given by an operator and it is the wrong number. So he loses his temper at the latest one when he tries for the third or fourth time. Although his abuse is pretty mild, somehow the operator (just an Asian voice who we never see, other than her eyes at times) is so angered by being told off, that she makes Gary her enemy. She is determined to ruin his life.
Now this is a pretty cool plot for a movie you're thinking, but it's been done countless times before, and I can't think of one movie where it wasn't done better. Regardless anyway, this part of the plot doesn't last long, I'm not sure if the same actor was cast to be in a different TV movie and they just combined the two at the end, but it ends up becoming a preachy religious movie with our main character who now drives a car without a door, who visits an African American church in session, with a pastor that he rejected from jury duty earlier in the film because his client wanted to be judged by his peers (ie only white guys). Gary (played by an actor called Michael Laurence by the way) totally overacts worse than someone on a radio commercial and blubbers his reacquaintance with the pastor. They take a walk and for some reason the pastor supposedly telling a joke tells the worn out tale of a guy needing to be rescued who turns away rescuer, after rescuer , because he's a regular churchgoer and God will save him. I don't know what this had to do with anything to do with the rest of the film but we're there bored the whole time. Then it becomes a I'm going to betray my client, who we'd learnt very little about before this in the movie other than knowing he's a racist. Oh and there's some weird hit man kill some old guy's mum payment thing going on that, who knows why it's in the film. Then as I mentioned he goes and visits the old lady from Seinfeld who offers to make tea and tells him she's going blind and that sight is a gift.
A movie that really didn't know what story it wanted to tell, and really didn't know how to tell any of the ones it attempts to. Give it a miss.
At the end, the attorney has a change of heart, and it became a bit too religious for my tastes... Plus, I don't understand how that old school cell phone worked as long as it did when the con man who sold it to him didn't give him a charger... It is interesting to note that Christa Miller (The Drew Carey Show, Scrubs and Cougar Town) plays the wife.. and it was co produced by Betty Buckley.. But even still, I wasn't impressed. Save your time and money and just rewatch The Net or The Net 2.0 - which are classics compared to this derivative mess.
All in all, a quite different and provocative film. If the operator is acting as some sort of spiritual guide to Wheelan, then perhaps that's what the movie's ultimate message is.
