In the Spring 1995 edition of RQ (Reference & User Services Quarterly) an article by Dewdney & Mitchell appeared titled "Oranges and Peaches: Understanding Communication Accidents in the Reference Interview" details a reference interview at a library where the Origin of Species is mistaken for Oranges and Peaches, as in the film. According to the article's footnotes, the story was taken from a discussion on the LIBREF-L list (p. 534). It's unclear whether the script or the LIBREF-L discussion/article came first. See more »

Okay. This has been a favourite since I was 14. Granted, I don't watch it multiple times a year anymore, but... This is not a movie for an older generation who want a deeper meaning or some brilliant message. This movie is FUN. It's pretty dated, almost passe, but Parker Posey is so brilliant that it's unbelievable. If you want to be charmed by a 90's Breakfast at Tiffany's, attended 90's raves, or love Parker, this movie is for you. Otherwise, don't bother.
