THE TELEPHONE features the one and only Whoopi Goldberg front and center, essentially delivering a one-woman show (with some assistance from an owl and a goldfish) and has a genuine twist ending that you will never see coming.

Vashti Blue (Goldberg) is an eccentric, out-of-work actress who depends on her phone for everything she needs. We follow her story for one crazy night of mixed personalities and hijinks, learning along the way that this woman is in fact teetering on the very edge of her sanity. Solid support is provided by Amy Wright, Elliott Gould, Severn Darden and John Heard.

Goldberg herself regards this film as the worst in her career (though I'd personally put MADE IN AMERICA in that spot). She sued the filmmakers and tried her darndest to have the film pulled but to no avail. It's not as bad as she'd have you believe. This film features her in fine form and I enjoy revisiting it often.
